    Review: 'Last Man' actually funny
    Will Forte created and stars in the new Fox sitcom

    THE LAST MAN ON EARTH: Will Forte as Phil Miller in the first half of the "Alive in Tucson/The Elephant in the Room" special one-hour Series Premiere episode of THE LAST MAN ON EARTH airing Sunday, March 1 (9:00-9:30/9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. ©2015 Fox Broadcasting Co.

    Will Forte had me at the Cheez Whiz.

    Six minutes into his terrific Fox sitcom, The Last Man on Earth - in which he plays, um, the last man left alive on Earth - Forte samples a $10,000 bottle of red wine with his bowl of SpaghettiOs.

    Then he has a brainstorm (or a meltdown) and squirts a dollop of processed canned cheese into the glass and takes a nice long sip.

    He deliberates for a while, then declares, "Not as good."

    The Last Man on Earth premieres at 9 p.m. Sunday with a double episode.

    Forte, best known for his long stint on Saturday Night Live, plays Phil Miller, a former office drone, who has survived a pandemic that wiped out the world's population.

    Forte, who also created the series, delivers a virtuoso solo performance in the first episode's opening 15 minutes, which has Phil zigzagging across America in a failed search for other survivors. We watch as he sets up house in a grand mansion in Tucson, Ariz., which he decorates with a billion-dollars' worth of art he pilfered during his travels.

    He's so lonely that he tries dating a store window mannequin.

    And he talks to God.

    "Hello, God. First of all, I'd like to apologize for all the recent masturbation," he says while sporting Hugh Hefner's red pajamas. "Actually, that's kind of on you. . . . If you could send some [women] or one my way."

    Be careful for what you wish.

    Phil gets a woman, all right. But Carol Pilbasian (Flight of the Concord's brilliant Kristen Schaal) isn't exactly a blessing.

    She's a neurotic nitpicker. She's one of those people who corrects your grammar. Obsessively. Incessantly. And let's face it, Phil isn't the most articulate dude. He's also a messy slob, which drives poor Carol around the bend.

    Salvation quickly turns into damnation as the world's only man and woman try to shack up. The Last Man on Earth is a rare creature - a sitcom that's actually funny.

    How can you have a show where the main character doesn't interact with anyone?

    It's him and the last woman on earth. It's much better than any clip you see of it. This first 2 shows are a home run.

    It's going to take humanity another 60 million years to evolve a chin.

    So the premise is that an annoying woman spends all of her time trying to correct a man?

    Gee, that sounds like why I'm not married. I'll pass.

    Never like Will Forte before, but really liked those two episodes last night. Interesting premise and funny without resorting to schtick. Almost touching at times.
