Critic Consensus: It may run out of steam before the season's over, but The Last Man on Earth's ambitious concept and comedic undertone are enough to lure viewers in.

News & Interviews for The Last Man on Earth: Season 1
The Last Man on Earth approaches issues like loneliness and the need for a human connection but then pulls back hilariously. Too often, TV shows that take risks also take some effort on the viewer's part to enjoy. This one is just fun.
That's one reason to like the new Fox sitcom The Last Man on Earth ... It's all about the apocalaughs.
This is a concept that so far doesn't lack for execution. Last Man On Earth has no chance at all to be a blockbuster in league with Fox's new Empire. But it's another distinctive example of what the Big Four broadcast networks should dare and do.
It's a concept I'm not sure can be carried over a season, much less multiple ones. It might have been a stronger feature film.
Even though the show moves confidently and hilariously in a new direction in the second episode, at the same time it feels like the first half of a very smart, sharply edited feature film, not a sitcom with weekly obligations.
Audience Reviews for The Last Man on Earth: Season 1
Most of the popuiation has suddenly disappeared, a man named Phil Miller is the "Last Man on Earth" until he meets Carol and more people started to show up. They have to deal with the everyday life without the ease of technology but also they need to deal with each others. Secrets and lies are revealed. Started off quite well but became about relationships once more people are introduced. Please don't renew this, just let it die.
