I am sure you all have watched one of the best show on TV “Last Man Standing.” Sadly after six seasons, ABC Network confirmed that they are canceling Tim Allen-starring sitcom.
Last Man was ABC’s second-highest-rated comedy behind Modern Family, averaging, in its sixth season, an impressive 6.41 million live viewers.
ABC canceled the series in early May — sparking a boycott and backlash — after six successful seasons, in which it was nominated for two Primetime Emmys. The cancellation inspired a viral Change.org petition, which has collected more than 410,000 signatures. Speculation swirled for months over reports that 20th Century Fox and later CMT would become the new network home for Last Man.
The show was one of the few broadcast network sitcoms to appeal to conservative, blue-collar America, a true oddity since Allen has noted in interviews that the program was written by liberal writers.
Actor Tim Allen doubled down on his condemnation of ABC’s decision to abruptly cancel the highly-rated sitcom Last Man Standing, saying his “funny, likable conservative” character may have led to the show’s demise.
The veteran actor and stand-up comedian unloaded on the network Tuesday during an appearance on Norm Macdonald Live.
“I have no idea why they did what they did,” Allen said of ABC. “You couldn’t have handled this worse.”
“Second biggest show, [ABC] hadn’t won a Friday night in 15 years,” he said. “They put us out to pasture on Friday and we won Friday. Big night for us. Big night for them. I would have put Roseanne after us. Use us just to launch shows, if nothing else.”
