'Duck Dynasty' doesn't help Tim Allen's sitcom

Posted on

Last Man Standing

The mighty Ducks failed to give a boost to Tim Allen’s sitcom Friday night.

The third season premiere of Last Man Standing (6.6 million viewers, 1.5 adults 18-49 rating) was down 25 percent from last year’s premiere despite the Duck Dynasty gang stopping by.

At 8:30 p.m., the second season premiere of The Neighbors (4.6 million, 1.2) did pretty much what you expected in its new Friday time slot. ABC’s wacky aliens-next-door sitcom was down 37 percent from its regular slot on Wednesdays last season. Neighbors was also down 20 percent from its Last Man Standing lead-in.

At 9 p.m., the return of Shark Tank (6.7 million, 1.7) sighed in frustration. The entrepreneurial reality hit was down a tenth from last season’s premiere, but with that Neighbors lead-in, you can’t really blame the Tank. Still, that was enough for the sharks to easily top Friday night.
