ABC Pulls ‘Man Up!’ From The Schedule

Deadline - Tim Allen is indeed TV’s last man standing this fall. Allen’s Last Man Standing series, which has received a full-season pickup, is the only one of the 3 new fall comedies centered on guys to still be on the air after ABC today pulled its companion Man Up!. Effective next Tuesday, the network will air reruns of Last Man Standing in the 8:30 PM slot just like NBC runs repeats of Up All Night at 8:30 PM on Wednesdays following the cancellation of Free Agents. Today’s move by ABC, which comes on the heels of Man Up! posting another series low on Tuesday, only hastens the exit of the comedy, which had already been canceled after the network opted not to order additional episodes beyond the original 13-episode order and left the series out of its midseason schedule. It is reminiscent of the early pullout of the other new “guy” series, CBS’ How To Be A Gentleman. Both Gentleman and Man Up! were created by actors (David Hornsby, Chris Moynihan) as starring vehicles for themselves. Eight episode of Man Up! have aired. It is unclear when the remaining 5 will run as a burnoff.

Just based on the commercials for this show, it didn't look like it would last.
