    Last Man Standing just announced the upcoming 9th season will be its last


    • Destiny

      It had a good run but I would imagine with the increased costs due to the pandemic that it doesn’t make a lot of sense to keep around anymore.


    • nan

      Impressive for Tim Allen. It even surpassed Home Improvement in # of seasons.
      (Curious: What about # of episodes?)


  2. Destiny

    I think Game of Games is easily a bubble show leaning cancelation now. Even during the covid era NBC doesn’t have a whole lot of reasons to renew with those numbers.


  3. 69 Road Runner

    Showtime is bringing back Dexter [Morgan] next year! I love seeing him take out the trash!
