After ABC decided to cancel Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing television show, the conservative community got angry. Many decided to boycott ABC/Disney because of it.
Variety now reports 20th Century Fox Television has decided to find another home for the popular show. This is good news for all of us who enjoyed watching Tim slap down liberal snowflakes on a regular basis.
The show’s producers will need your continued support online, call-ins and write-ins to make this possible. It’s an uphill climb, but you can’t get there unless you take on the journey.
But the series, which was ABC’s second most-watched comedy last season behind “Modern Family,” may not be dead. Asked whether “Last Man Standing” would be shopped to other networks, Kurtzman said, “We’re starting to explore that. If it’s not going to go forward at ABC, of course Jonnie and I are hopeful that we can find another home for it.”
“Last Man Standing” faces an uphill climb in search of a new network. After six seasons, costs for the series are significantly higher than those for younger multi-camera comedies typically are. And the buying patterns of broadcast networks this development season showed little appetite for multi-cams among most of the Big Four.
Some streaming services have seen recent success with multi-cams, such as Netflix with “Fuller House” and “The Ranch.”
And the studio heads are encouraged by the fan support that they’ve seen for the show since ABC confirmed its cancellation last week. “We know how passionate our fans are, and we’re seeing that now,” Davis said.
Political and social conservatives have been vocal in their disappointment over the show’s end. Allen, its star and executive producer, is conservative and a supporter of President Trump.
In its sixth season at ABC, “Last Man Standing” averaged a 1.2 rating and 6.4 million total viewers, according to Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers.
Let’s get this back. There are so many awful TV shows out there how in the world does it make sense this is canceled? I’m sure the costs have gone up, but it’s the number two show. What a joke.
Last Man Standing gave us a wonderful way to unwind after a long week and enjoy several laughs about issues political or not as a family. I hope it finds a new home as it has been something I look forward to each week. It’s truly unfair to the cast, crew, writers, and fans for ABC to cancel a show with so little reasoning or any attempt at providing a series finale of a still highly rated show finishing its sixth season!
