I am sure you all have watched one of the best show on TV “Last Man Standing.” Sadly after six seasons, ABC Network decided to cancel 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 the Last Man.
Today it was confirmed “Last Man Standing” is set to premiere next month, and fans should get ready for the comedy series to return with similar plot lines as previous seasons, along with star Tim Allen’s character expressing his conservative views.
“I will say right now the producers’ plans are not to address whether or not he might be a Trump supporter,’” Fox Television Group CEO and Chairman, Gary Newman told reporters at the 2018 Television Critics Associations’ Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills, Calif. Thursday, adding that Allen’s character, Mike Baxter, “clearly” is someone “with a conservative viewpoint.”
“I think of the character as a fairly centrist viewpoint,” Newman explains. “Of course, that could change during the season, but there are no plans at this time.”
In a follow-up interview, Newman noted he doesn’t “anticipate” the series “being more political.”
“At its heart, it’s a family comedy,” he said. “I think that they’re going to tell the same type of stories that they told during its run on ABC.”
Conservatives get a rare win in Hollywood. Will you support Tim and prove all the liberals wrong?
James Woods, Tim Allen, and Clint Eastwood are shining lights in a sea of Hollywood darkness.
So this is a good news for me!
Will you support Tim and prove all the liberals wrong?
