Fox at 2015 TCA Summer Tour; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 10, 2015)

Jason Sudeikis - The Last Man on Earth

Fox was up at the 2015 TCA Summer Tour yesterday and among the key sitcom highlights were about a big star on a sitcom. Comedy superstar Jason Sudeikis (We're the Millers) will join his former Saturday Night Live co-star Will Forte as he returns to guest-star in Season Two of Fox's hit comedy series, The Last Man on Earth. At the conclusion of Season One, Sudeikis appeared briefly as Phil Miller's (Forte) astronaut brother who has been stuck in space after a virus decimated the earth's population, except for a handful of survivors. In the Season Two premiere, airing Sunday, Sept. 27 at 9:30PM ET/PT on Fox, Phil Miller (Forte), Carol Pilbasian (Kristen Schaal) and their legion of loyal sports balls strike out on their own after Phil was banned from Tucson by the rest of the group. The comedy recently was nominated for four 2015 Emmy Awards: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Forte), Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series (Forte) and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series (Phil Lord and Chris Miller each received a nomination).
