ABC sitcom Last Man Standing has been conservatives’ favorite show. So imagine how angry conservatives are when they discovered their favorite series was canceled?
For the conservatives, the sitcom represents a detached world where they can experience Hollywood liberal elitism. Starring the comedian Tim Allen, the character he plays has right-of-center values.
After six seasons, ABC decided to end the show; their excuse was a political one like several conservatives outlets did.
A conservative review about the sitcom described Allen as an “unintentional prophet,” the last line of resistance against the invading viewpoint of progressivism.
The political aspect for the show’s cancellation
Town Hall allegedly said that “Allen’s real crime was not poor ratings, but having the audacity to announce he was a conservative.”
In March, Allen confirmed he was a conservative saying that being a conservative in Hollywood is “like 1930s Germany.”
On the other hand, there is a petition on Change.org asking for boycotting the network and a calling for a re-establishment of the show. The petition gathered 380,000 signatures in only a week.
“Last Man Standing is one of the only shows on broadcast television, and the only sitcom, that is not constantly shoving liberal ideals down the throats of the viewers,” the petition states. “And sadly, that is likely the real reason the show has been cancelled.”
Other reasons for the show’s cancellation
However, that is not the reason why the show was canceled, Last Man Standing wasn’t an important sitcom; it is the kind of sitcoms which networks cancel.
ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey affirmed that politics wasn’t connected to the show’s cancellation. However, the network stopped screening comedies on Fridays, the evening Last Man Standing aired. Other series have been canceled too such as Dr. Ken and American Crime.
