Last week, ABC abruptly canceled the popular conservative show “Last Man Standing” despite its strong ratings on Friday night.
Following its cancellation, a massive boycott of ABC was created, demanding that the network brings the show back to the airwaves. It was one of the few conservative television shows on TV.
ABC claimed that they canceled “Last Man Standing” following the network’s decision to end comedy shows on Friday nights. However, many speculate that its conservative views caused the cancellation.
Tim Allen Responds To the Last Man Standing Cancelation
Well, following the show’s cancellation, Tim Allen has finally spoken out. The “Toolman” Took to Twitter to reveal his thoughts.
Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years. #lastmanstanding

From Fox News:
Allen and his co-star Hector Elizondo declined to comment to Fox News about the cancellation. His co-stars Nancy Travis, Kaitlyn Dever, Molly Ephraim and Christoph Sanders did not return Fox News’ request for comment.
However, Nancy Travis, who plays Allen’s wife Vanessa Baxter on the show, has been retweeting fans’ efforts to boycott ABC until they bring back “Last Man Standing.”
Amanda Fuller, who portrayed Allen’s daughter on the show, posted a lengthy message on Twitter urging people to sign the petition demanding the show return to the airwaves:

ABC could have easily found another night of the week to air the show. It seems as though ABC is making up a reason for canceling the show. The reality is the network’s liberal bosses likely opposed its conservative values.
If ABC won’t bring back “Last Man Standing” then hopefully another network that is more tolerant of conservative viewpoints will.
