Trump supporter Tim Allen beats TDS-infected Candice Bergen in TV show ratings

Suck it, Murphy Brown.

From USA Today: After the first week of the television season, Tim Allen has bragging rights over Candice Bergen.

The return of Allen’s sitcom Last Man Standingreached 8.1 million viewers on Fox last Friday night. That was more than the 7.5 million people who tuned into the revival of Bergen’s “Murphy Brown on CBS the night before.

CBS heavily promoted the return of “Murphy Brown” after two decades, and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had a cameo in the first episode.

Last Man Standing” had been gone just a year, canceled by ABC in a decision that Allen said left him “stunned and blindsided.” But Fox brought it back, and on its first week it was the network’s most popular entertainment show, particularly impressive considering Friday is one of the least-watched nights on television.

ABC said its decision was strictly business after it decided against airing comedies on Friday, but there were political overtones. Allen supports President Donald Trump and his lead character, Mike Baxter, has been described as Archie Bunker with a college education. Some conservatives said the cancellation was proof that they weren’t valued as customers in liberal Hollywood.

The victory over “Murphy Brown” was “a very big upset,” said Marc Berman, a veteran television analyst who runs the Programming Insider.

Murphy Brown” had the misfortune of competing against real-life politics, since the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh aired the day of its premiere, giving big boosts that evening to Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who together reached nearly 10 million viewers, Nielsen said.

  2. The left/cultural Marxists/SJWs must be getting desperate to be rolling out Candice Bergen. I had forgotten about her years ago. Their tricks are embarrassingly transparent. LOL

     
  3. I thought she was stiff, wooden and plain embarrassing as a comedienne in Murphy Brown the first time, and I couldn’t watch it then and won’t watch it now. Remember the lectures we got from her then that we were all bigoted for not endorsing her promotion of single motherhood in her show? Nothing has changed from the first time except that we can anticipate even more self righteousness, and moralizing in unfunny scripts acted by unfunny actress who is now older, fatter, less attractive and was only given her shot in the first place because of the nepotism in Hollywood.

      Well said!

      For those who don’t know, Candice is the daughter of Edgar Bergen, a famous ventriloquist, comedian, and actor.

       
  4. Maybe Candice can bring back Charlie McCarthy for the next episode.

    Charlie probably shows more spunk & life than Hildebeest!

     
  5. Hoping the Roseanne re re-boot will also suffer from disinterest.

     
  6. Good news:

    Tim Allen’s re-booted sitcom Last Man Standing once again reigned as the top Friday sitcom for its second episode of the season on Fox.
