Why did ABC cancel Last Man Standing? Recently, star Tim Allen discussed the cancelled TV show, Deadline reports.
Despite good ratings and a successful syndication deal, ABC cancelled Last Man Standing last May after six seasons. The comedy centered on Mike Baxter (Allen), a marketing director for the Outdoor Man sporting goods stores who lives with his wife and three daughters. The cast also includes Nancy Travis, Amanda Fuller, Molly Ephraim, Kaitlyn Dever, Christoph Sanders, Hector Elizondo, Flynn Morrison, Jordan Masterson, and Jonathan Adams.
On Norm MacDonald’s podcast, Allen revealed he has no idea why ABC ended Last Man Standing and the whole situation “was handled very badly.” The comedian also suggested his political leanings possibly led to the show’s cancellation, saying “There’s nothing more dangerous right now than a likable conservative.”
Though, earlier ABC Network boss Channing Dungey made it clear that Allen’s politics had “absolutely nothing to do with” the end of Last Man Standing.
What do you think? Did you watch Last Man Standing? Would you have watch another season?
I love Last Man Standing
I’m liberal as hell and love the show!
Truly love this show. Balanced viewpoints from likable characters regardless of what political position or side of a ‘cause’ they are championing. So glad Fox stepped up. Thumbs down and a question of integrity on the workings at ABC.
Love this show. Tim allen can make everybody laugh anytime.
Would like to see the show come back on the air?
Loved the show only decent show on Friday nights maybe another network will pick it up.
