It was just revealed about two hours ago that Designated Survivor—the political drama starring Kiefer Sutherland as U.S. President Tom Kirkman—was revived on Netflix! This is the second network TV show (behind the former FOX series Lucifer) to be picked up this year by the internet entertainment giant. This is also the second TV program, behind Tim Allen's Last Man Standing (which will now air on FOX starting September 28), to be cancelled by ABC...only to be brought back elsewhere. Awesome. The difference between Designated Survivor and Last Man Standing, however, is that I'm excited to watch the political drama when it returns for Season 3 next year. My interest in Last Man Standing somewhat dampened when Molly Ephraim, who played Mandy Baxter, decided not to return to the sitcom for a seventh season. Oh well.

So Designated Survivor, Last Man Standing, Lucifer and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (another former FOX show that returns next season on NBC) have been given new leases on life! Who's gonna be cool enough to bring Will Forte's The Last Man on Earth back to the boob tube? That defunct FOX comedy deserved a fifth season... Happy Hump Day.

The original cast of DESIGNATED SURVIVOR.
