Did ABC Cancel Tim Allen’s Hit Show ‘Last Man Standing’ Because of Its Conservative, Christian Themes?

Tim Allen’s popular ABC show Last Man Standing was, by all reasonable measures, a big success. Now in its sixth season, the ratings were still going strong and the show is considered to be an ‘anchor’ program for the network on Friday nights, a notoriously difficult slot to pull ratings. None of that success, however, stopped ABC from handing down a surprise cancellation notice today. Of course, ABC is free to cancel whichever shows it wants, since it is their network. But the move has left many scratching their heads, wondering what the real reason is. The central themes of the show are a prime suspect. Here’s a show description from Deadline :

With a central character who is a political conservative and devout Christian adhering to traditional American values, the blue-collar comedy appeals to viewers in the Heartland, a constituency that helped elect Donald Trump as president and has been energized post-election as evidenced by the ratings success of new USA drama Shooter.  That was also a swath of America ABC had been looking to reflect better, mostly on the drama side, as the network’s entertainment president Channing Dungey has noted this season.

    I like the show. One of the reasons is because of the conservative family values. I refuse to watch 99% of television these days because it is mainly overly liberal and extremely crude, not to mention it is just not funny or interesting at all. N=But Last Man Standing was actually fun to watch. I hope that another station quickly scoops it up. They would be very wise to do so.

  2. Dirty crying shame. I enjoy the show immensely also. I am 100% sure the decision to cancel was politically motivated. I know the show mirrors Tim Allen’s real life thoughts and views. It was just a matter of time before the liberal left hate mongers got around to this show. Curse you ABC

  3. Mentor with higher education was chatting throughout the day which involves %BT%.

    Person didn’t stop the following day as well. Can smb supply personally with increased laptop?

  4. Now, that type of knowledge of-and devotion to-a product that is not even on the shelf but would be unusual for
    many firms, but not for Nike.

    Yet another example of the “Kenites” actions in their perennial quest to destroy ANYTHING to do with Christian principles. Sound like an extreme statement? You have much to learn.
