The ABC comedy, 'Last Man Standing' starring Tim Allen was picked up for a full season back in November.
On November 3, ABC gave 'Man' the 'back 9' bringing the first season from 13 episodes to a full season 22 episodes. Given the strength of this freshman comedy ABC has now given the series two additional episodes bringing the total of the first season to 24 episodes.
'Last Man Standing' has been a solid performance and was able to open a second comedy night for ABC on Tuesdays. Once 'Work It' is canceled, 'Cougar Town' will be sent to the 8:30pm slot on Tuesday. Next year for the 2012/2013 TV season ABC is hoping to have 'Last Man Standing,' 'Cougar Town' and 'Happy Endings' on Tuesdays to make a second comedy night for ABC.
