Back in March, I did a story on Tim Allen and his show “Last Man Standing”. As a conservative, we all know it’s pretty hard to find conservatives in Hollywood, let alone someone who didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton for President. Tim Allen is a conservative. He’s also a Trump supporter.
It seems liberal ABC has cancelled Allen’s show “Last Man Standing” even though it was in its sixth season and ratings were great! Maybe ABC’s cancelling the show had more to do with Tim Allen’s recent “coming out” against anti-Trumpers on his previous appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”? Allen stated on Kimmel’s show,
“You’ve gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes.” Looks like Allen was right!
H/T Western Journalism:
ABC confirmed Wednesday it is cancelling Tim Allen’s sitcom Last Man Standing, despite the show posting strong ratings.
Deadline reports the popular program, which stars Allen as political conservative and Christian Mike Baxter, is the second-most watched comedy on ABC and the network’s third-most viewed scripted series overall.
Though airing at 8 p.m. Friday nights, Last Man Standing pulls only slightly fewer viewers than ABC’s No. 1 socially liberal comedy Modern Family — airing at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays — which ABC did renew.
The Live+7 viewership (those who watch the program live or within seven days on DVR) total is 8.1 million for Last Man Standing compared to Modern Family’s 8.7 million.
Despite being in its sixth season, the program only saw a modest 5 percent decline in viewership, in comparison to some shows which are normally down as much as 20 or 30 percent at this point in their television life, according to Deadline.
Variety reports, “Last Man Standing was ahead of the curve in the cultural sense as Allen played a conservative-minded patriarch who runs a sporting goods store and opines about the modern world, including political topics such as Obamacare and environmental policy.”
Allen had such scenes like THIS one about Snowflakes:
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live in March, Allen said it is dangerous to be politically conservative in Hollywood as he recounted attending President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
“I’m not kidding. You gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” Allen said.
Allen stated on “Kimmel Live”, “This is like ‘30s Germany. I don’t know what happened. If you’re not part of the group, ‘You know what we believe is right,’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that.’”….
As reported by Western Journalism, Disney CEO Bob Iger defended his corporation, which is the parent company of ABC, against charges of being liberally biased during the annual shareholder meeting in March.
Iger was questioned whether his corporation would continue to cater to “liberal coastal elites or make your company welcoming to all Americans?”
The CEO denied Disney was only focused on producing programming agreeable to liberals.
Iger, who co-hosted a Beverly Hills fundraiser for Hillary Clinton last August, has agreed to be part of the president’s Business Advisory Council.
“I don’t believe my membership in that group in any way endorses or supports any specific policy of the president or his administration,” Iger told shareholders, who opposed his participation.
OK….blah….blah…blah…WHATEVER! ABC should face the facts. ABC just didn’t want to support a Conservative and Christian show on Primetime TV that supported Trump and made fun of liberals. Period.
Let’s hope Netflix picks up more seasons of Allen’s “Last Man Standing”. Let’s face it…in Hollywood, real conservatives are hard to find. ABC has lost another great hit, actor and producer…and they wonder why Fox News is the No. 1 cable news show. The truth is facts are pretty hard to beat.
“You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes.” – Allen
