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.
Apparently, it is ok for SNL to trash our president week after week, but when Tim Allen expresses his brand of conservatism, his show gets canceled. I guess that is more of that good old fashioned Love Trumping Hate from the Left.
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.
Well, after tons of petitions showcasing massive support for the show, the folks behind it have some good news for viewers.
CMT is in “early talks” to pick up “Last Man Standing” after ABC axed the show in May despite high ratings, a source told Fox News.
A source close to the deal confirmed to Fox News that CMT is in the “very early stages” of discussions to become the new home for the beloved Tim Allen series.
“Last Man Standing” has already proven successful for CMT. The network currently airs the sitcom in syndication.
CMT recently rescued another fan-favorite show: “Nashville,” which was canceled by ABC in May 2016 and then picked up by CMT a month later.
Finding a new home for “Last Man Standing” has been a priority for 20th Century Fox Television, which produces the show, since it was canceled. Howard Kurtzman, president of 20th Century Fox Television, told The Hollywood Reporter in May, “If there’s a way to bring it back, we will explore those opportunities.”
It seems that the cancellation is still sinking in, and certainly came as a shock to all involved. Allen seemed pretty sure it would be lucky number seven for the show, while David and Kurtzman told Variety that they were left gobsmacked by the news:
“That’s the one that’s really an open sore right now, We really were expecting a pickup. The fact that we didn’t get a pickup was a surprise and a disappointment. I think no one was more disappointed than Tim Allen, such a huge star with such a huge following.”
Conservative’s get a rare win in Hollywood. Will you support Tim and prove all the liberals wrong?
