After ABC HATEFULLY Cancelled Last Man Standing, The HIT Show May Not Be Dead After All!

I loved the show Last Man Standing and when I heard that ABC had sickeningly cancelled it I was confused. That’s like McDonald’s discontinuing the Big Mac, or if Burger King stopped selling the Whopper. Last Man Standing’ was one of the highest rated shows on ABC.

Then, it was canceled. Why? Because the show often pushes a conservative viewpoint.  That’s not allowed in Hollywood. The fans weren’t pleased about it and many people are talking about a boycott of ABC.

However, some good news about the show broke today. It might not be dead after all…

From Country Living: Last Man Standing may get a second lease of life, following its cancellation at ABC. Executives at 20th Century Fox Television, the studio behind the Tim Allen-starring sitcom, confirmed to Variety today that they will seek a new home for the show.

 Studio presidents Jonnie Davis and Howard Kurtzman confirmed that they were surprised by ABC’s decision not to continue the show, describing the news as “an open sore”. “We really were expecting a pickup,” Kurtzman admitted. “The fact that we didn’t get a pickup was a surprise and a disappointment. I think no one was more disappointed than Tim Allen – such a huge star with such a huge following.”

Gotta love the free market.

Clearly, there is an audience for this show.  ABC had every right to do what they wanted but it’s really hard to understand what they were thinking. You can’t have one show that has a different view?  Especially one that gets great ratings?
