When ABC canceled Tim Allen’s ‘Last Man Standing,’ conservatives were perplexed. The show (with a conservative star and pro-Trump attitude) was very popular and crushed in the ratings – even though it aired on Friday nights.
Now, Fox has decided to step up and renew the show for a seventh season!
From USA Today:
Fox has picked up ABC castoff Last Man Standing, the family comedy starring Tim Allen that was canceled last spring after six seasons.
The series, which stars Allen as Mike Baxter, a married father of three girls trying to “maintain his manliness,” was the subject of protests when ABC pulled the plug, as fans claimed the network was punishing Allen for his conservative political stance. ABC denied it, and instead blamed higher costs. The Disney-owned network has since revived Roseanne, whose star Roseanne Barr is an avowed Trump supporter, to ratings success.
Last Man was never beloved by critics, but the comedy was a solid performer, averaging 8.3 million viewers with delayed viewing counted in its final season and ranking as ABC’s No. 2 comedy behind Modern Family.
Fox News has more:
According to the network’s recent announcement, “Last Man Standing” will air on Fox in the fall to help round out its Friday nights. The show is expected to air at 8 p.m. when it finally returns after more than a year off the air.
“Team LMS was in the sixth inning, ahead by four runs, stands were packed and then for no reason, they call off the game. It leaves you sitting in the dugout, holding a bat and puzzled. Now we get the news from FOX that it’s time to get back out on that diamond – hell yes, I’m excited,” Allen said in a statement announcing the revival.
