The Last Man on Earth


FOX Broadcasting Company (FBC) debuted on Oct. 9, 1986, with “The Late Show with Joan Rivers” – a queen of comedy deployed to take on NBC’s king of late night, Johnny Carson. Rivers’ inaugural quartet of iconoclast guests included Cher, David Lee Roth, Elton John and Pee-Wee Herman, and the show was gangbusters.


September means back-to-school season, the end of summer and loads of new television programming. It’s a particularly exciting month for FOX and FX Networks, which are unleashing a huge wave of fall series and season premieres for audiences to enjoy.

Phil Miller thought he was the lone surviving human after a virus swept across the planet – but he was wrong, and now he’s living through a different kind of fallout. “The Last Man on Earth,” FOX’s post-apocalyptic comedy starring Will Forte as Phil (who now goes by his middle name, Tandy), is making its return Sunday, March 6, at 9:30/8:30c.
