Was ‘Last Man Standing’ too conservative for ABC?

Was ‘Last Man Standing’ too conservative for ABC?

ABC has canceled Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” after six seasons—despite the show’s No. 2 spot when it comes to ratings.

“Last Man Standing,” an Emmy-nominated sitcom that centers on a father of three trying to maintain his manliness in a postmodern world, was second only to ABC’s “Modern Family” on the network. Fans aren’t happy that the show is being axed, a decision that seems suspect given its strong ratings.

On Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck described the show as “Home Improvement” plus conservative talking points presented in a lighthearted way. “It’s the show that we say we’re all looking for,” he said.

Glenn and the guys were puzzled about ABC’s business decision and disappointed that the rare conservative sitcom is being cut.

Variety reported that while ratings are still strong, they had waned for the show in the last season, noting that ABC may be completely revamping its Friday night lineup. On the other hand, people including Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker have accused ABC of playing politics with the decision to cancel.
