Actor and comedian, Tim Allen, finally broke his silence about the shocking cancellation of his popular conservative sitcom, Last Man Standing. ABC made the announcement that they would not be renewing the show for a seventh season, despite it’s incredibly high ratings. The abrupt, and obviously politically motivated, decision has many people angry-including Allen.

In response, Allen’s supporters launched a boycott against ABC, and started a petition to have the show reinstated. To date, that petition has amassed almost 400,000 signatures and counting. ABC recently addressed the petition saying the show was cancelled for “business and scheduling reasons.” Gee, where have we heard that before?

ABC Entertainment President, Channing Dungey, posited that a big part of her job is to make “tough calls and cancel shows that we would love to have on.” “[‘Last Man Standing’] was a challenging one for me because it was a steady performer in the ratings,” Dungey said. “Once we made the decision to not continue with comedies on Friday, that was where we landed.”

Does Dungey not know that there are six other nights of the week. She admitted the show is doing well, so why not move it to another night? We’ll tell you why-she is full of liberal BS. Sadly, that comes as no surprise. Most people are aware that being a conservative makes you…

    I had not seen the show, “Last Man Standing” but after seeing the above video clip, I will be sure to catch the episodes I have missed. Perhaps the writers should contact Glenn Beck to see if he would like to air the show and they could continue the series. We Conservatives must RESIST THE RESISTANCE!

      It is hard to believe you haven’t seen it. It is so darn funny and clean.

  • Kim

    They did it with the show FOREVER as well. It is obviously personal and not a business decision. You don’t get rid of a money maker unless you are a bad decision maker. maybe they should get rid of some of those making the decisions instead of the good shows????

    I don’t watch many TV shows, but this comedy is one I would record.

  • Lynn Noffsinger

    I was a strong viewer of Last Man Standing and I take it personal. I AM SENDING A COPY OF THE PETION TO ALL SPONSORS OF YOUR STATION. WE WILL NOT BE PURCHASING ANY OF THOSE PRODUCTS UNTIL THE PROGRAM IS BACK ON THE AIR.

    • Jeri Guerra

      Yeah , I hope everyone boycotts till they get it back on , I for 1 don’t watch much on ch.7 to begin with so it’s easy to boycott it completely

  • Sheryl higgins

    I will boycott ABC also luv one man standing, what is wrong with you its got Alot of follows , please keep the show on , thank you

  • Dawn Hohenstein

    We love the show ! Finally someone who stands up for the conservative side. We deserve to have a say in this too. Keep the show on!!!!

  • greg

    Liberals have taken over the airwaves. I have had cable removed and just stream baseball at the time of year. This fall it will be ncaa football. NFL and their liberal buddies can just go away.

  • I don’t watch too much ABC because like most of the other networks run by liberals, they LIE. You people got pissed off because Tim Allen is a Conservative that speaks his mind. You are going to tell me how wrong I am but I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck, I’ve been around a day or two. You liberal butt heads are so damned full of yourself it is pathetic. I would be happy if a huge 9.0 earthquake came along and washed SoCal into the Pacific.

    Im a liberal but I love this show!!! To take it off because of Tims political beliefs is way beyond wrong!!! We all have our own opinion n thats how it should be!!! If we were all the same what a boring world it would be huh? Save Last Man Standing!!! Love me some Tim Allen☺

  • I watched it every friday night the one show they need to take off is the bachelor and bachelorett to me its nothing but free prostitution and drunkeness there are other ways to find a damn partner its disgusting and trashy. Tim Allen’s show is a family show that all family members can watch he just stands up for what he believes in . thats sad they rather promote prostitution and drunkeness than a family show. PERIOD……

    • Christine

      I completely agree with you those two shows are beyond trashy!! Leave in the show that actually has values and life lessons!!!

  • barbara sypien

    What idiots. Cancel Last Man and keep those big mouth idiotic whores on the View on. What the hell is wrong with these people. Keep the trash and throw out the good shows???? Whats next,cancel Modern Family because it conflicts with the losers on the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows???? So done with ABC.

  • Tom

    I don’t really give a shit what your political views are. Keep the them to yourself and continue an entertaining show. You’re a real piece of work. Not to smart, but a piece of work.

  • Carl

    They should take all the ABC big shots and hang the by their short hair till they smarten up stupid they all should be fired and but monkeys in there place they would do a better job and make better decisions.

  • Di

    I hear fox might pick it up please do. Screw abc. If your not a lefty your out in Hollywood we’ll screw hollyweird. This is suppose to be America Biliary & obummer is behind all this crap ? cause she didn’t win& I would of loved to seen a woman in White House but not that witch. Just my opinion

  • Shari

    My husband and I were faithful viewers of ABC and started off our day with Goof Morning America every day until “George” and his left wing rhetoric took over and we moved to NBC. Now they take off Last Man Standing?? I guess we the ” deplorables” are not allowed to voice our opinions. I hope Fox picks up this show. We loved it.

    Get this show back! It is real!

    • Anonymous

      Yeah real, like bigotry and fine millionaire Christian values! So glad this was cancelled!

  • Chuck Weaver

    Lamest excuse ever. Thats like Wall Street saying dont purchase these stocks they are making money lets go with this less profitable one its all we have time for. Bull crap. If you are going to go against what Americans want at least have the guts to say so. Thats OK though ABC will go down like Target and the rest. Have a great trip down.

  • Ed Rainey

    am done with anyone who rejects opinions f others….thats whats wrong with liberals…i have refused to watch ABC since this matter came about….i will watch “Last Man” on netflix…Tim allen is a Class Act…ABC has proved their worth. “0”

  • Linda Fields

    This show is a great show. Why not take a show that is very racist like “Blackish” off the network and put this show into that time slot? I have about 16 shows that I DVR off of ABC but I guess I will be deleting those and going to another network. Since you won’t have any viewers you won’t have to worry about scheduling!

  • Shirley Conner

    Please return this show we watched it every week! Will miss it very much why punish everyone if ther are people who don’t want to watch it they don’t have too but leave it there for you viewers who enjoy it very much! The rest of the people can turn the channel!

  • Carol Trow

    Really, ABC? Producers need to get rid of peoplewho make assinine decisionslike this!

  • Cagem

    I mean really? Aren’t we the driving force behind the Ratings? So how will the network and sponsors collect their pay checks when the network ratings bottom out. Why aren’t the sponsors pulling their ads? I pulling my support of ABC as well as their sponsors. I’m so very tired of trash coming in my home. I’ve find myself using the OFF button more than ever. The silence is so different but I could get use to it. I am so proud to see so many stand up for this!

  • Haven’t watched any network tv in years. Trite, trashy, canned, predictable schlock.

  • jojo

    This is pure propaganda to rile up the right and I bet you won’t even post this comment. TV is a business about the almighty dollar, and I assure you that if it was in their best interest, financially, to keep the show going, it would still be going. You think Tim Allen comes cheap? Every year he gets an increase and while the ratings maintain their status, the cost of the show rises. These are business decisions so believe whatever you want.

  • Rev Reginald

    I love it, and I love Tim Allen in a non awakward sort of way he says what I’m thinking!

    Imagine EVERY SINGLE CURSE WORD ever spoken, that’s what I think of ABC’s “claimed” reason. ABSOLUTELY TOTAL BS…and they know it. Imagine EVERY SINGLE CURSE WORD ever spoken, that’s what I think of ABC’s “claimed” reason. ABSOLUTELY TOTAL BS…and they know it.

    That show is not in the least bit funny. Tim allen and his cohorts are as predictable as your tired morning crunches. The only one slightly amusing is the dumb stock boy and that little girl who loves guns makes me sick! Hated it when it was on, glad its gone!
