The Friday, September 28th, premieres of LAST MAN STANDING and THE COOL KIDS and return of HELL’S KITCHEN delivered FOX its most-watched Friday with entertainment in a decade and highest-rated Premiere Week Friday in seven years in 3-Day delayed viewing. In winning the night, FOX won three consecutive nights during Premiere Week – Wednesday, Thursday and Friday -- for the first time in its history.

Giving FOX its most-watched Friday entertainment telecast in nearly 18 years, LAST MAN STANDING grew to 11.5 million viewers in 3-Day multi-platform viewing, making it the network’s most-watched comedy on any night in seven years (excluding NFL nights) and more than double than any FOX live-action comedy telecast last season. In Live + 3 Day ratings, LAST MAN STANDING’s 2.5/14 L3 is up +56% from its Season Six season debut and marks its highest Friday rating ever.

LAST MAN STANDING out-rates every Premiere Week comedy (tied with Young Sheldon, excluding Big Bang Theory), making FOX the only network to have both a comedy (LAST MAN STANDING) and drama (9-1-1, EMPIRE) post at least a 2.5 L3 rating during Premiere Week.

The series premiere of THE COOL KIDS grew to 9.3 million viewers in 3-Day multi-platform viewing, making it broadcast’s most-watched Friday comedy debut in six years. It’s also FOX’s most-watched comedy launch in seven years since “New Girl” in 2011 and exceeds any FOX comedy telecast last season in multi-platform viewing. THE COOL KIDS delivered a 2.0/10 L3 rating among Adults 18-49. Its streaming audience of 652,000 viewers is FOX’s best comedy debut in three years.

All three of FOX’s new comedies premiered higher than any competitive freshman or rebooted comedy series in L3, with LAST MAN STANDING (2.5/14 L3) ranking #1 and THE COOL KIDS (2.0/10 L3) and REL (2.0/8 L3) tied for #2.

The Season 18 premiere of HELL’S KITCHEN registered a 1.3/7 L3 rating, up +8% vs. its premiere last season, and 4.5 million multi-platform viewers (+7%).
