The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

Absolutely love the show. SO tired of everyone hiding and scared to say things because our constitution is gone and only freedom of speech that is okay is only if it is approved by the government. This show gives hope as our country is dying.

1st season was SO good. But season 2 is total garbage. Lets be honest people, they ruined the good show everybody loved. Its not the same show we all fell in love with. The new sister is God awful! And her ex is just as bad. It has become unwatchable! Time for Tim Allen to start fresh again with another show. What a shame to say but – CANCEL! Cancel, cancel, cancel!!!

Please keep this show running. More shows that have positive Godly values need to occupy our TV time. Personally, my family has cut our TV viewing time way down in the last several to years due to the smut they calling entertainment.

This show is God awful. Its not funny, cute or clever. Its corny, dumb and written for the lowest common denominator. The ratings tell the story. Cancel this garbage…

I love the show and hope it does not get cancelled. They screwed up in replacing the oldest daughter after last year, but the show is still good. I like a show that has the nerve to present conservative views on issues.
