Fox Brings Back The Last Man on Earth Early; It's a Party on Fox Saturday Nights This March

The Last Man on Earth

The Last Man on Earth will make its spring premiere with all-new episodes beginning Sunday, March 6 at 9:30PM ET/PT on Fox. Also on March 6, Bordertown, the new animated series from executive producers Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane, will move to its new time period, Sundays at 7:00PM ET/PT. The Last Man on Earth fall finale concluded with Phil Miller 2 (guest star Boris Kodjoe) undergoing a makeshift appendix surgery, and Phil/Tandy's (Will Forte) astronaut brother, Mike Miller (guest star Jason Sudeikis), attempting to descend to Earth from outer space without human aid. The winter premiere will pick up exactly where the show left off, with Mike Miller's space capsule careening through the sky toward Earth, finally putting him on the same planet as his big brother, Phil/Tandy (Forte). Mike thinks he is the last man on earth, but who knows what or whom he might encounter. As previously announced, Critics' Choice Award winner and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Jacob Tremblay (The Room) will appear as a young Phil//Tandy in an upcoming episode this spring. Before moving time periods on Sunday, March 6, Bordertown will still air all-new episodes on Sunday, Feb. 14 at 9:30PM ET/PT and Sunday, Feb. 21 at 9:30PM ET/PT.


Party Over Here

Sticking with Fox, new late-night half-hour sketch comedy series Party Over Here will premiere Saturday, March 12 at 11:00PM ET/PT on Fox. The series is executive-produced by the Emmy Award-winning and Grammy Award-nominated comedy trio The Lonely Island - writer/performers Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. Actor/comedian Paul Scheer (The League, Fresh Off The Boat) also will serve as an executive producer and one of the series' directors. Skewering everything from pop culture to politics, Party Over Here will feature sketch comedy shorts, along with in-studio segments filmed in front of a live audience at the Alexandria Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The half-hour series stars newcomers and actress/comedians Nicole Byer (Girl Code), Jessica McKenna (Riot) and Alison Rich (Resident Advisors). Fox will shift encores of Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life to 11:30 PM ET/PT.
