'Last Man Standing' Cancellation Prompts Petition to Boycott ABC

'Last Man Standing' Cancellation Prompts Petition to Boycott ABC 'Last Man Standing' Cancellation Prompts Petition to Boycott ABC
Herman Weaver | 17 May, 2017, 12:51

The petition states that the Tim Allen-led sitcom was one of the few shows on television that didn't frequently shove liberal ideals down the throats of viewers, and that is likely the reason the show is being canceled. Allen wrote "Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years".

The cancellation came as a shock to many - not just Allen - as "Last Man Standing" was ABC's Friday night anchor show and boosted viewership of programming following its weekly airing.

Some analysts surmised that the reason for the show's cancellation was Allen's hefty salary, but conservatives slammed the network and accused it of playing politics.

According to TV Guide, Dungey also added that "Last Man Standing" being produced by 20th Century Fox contributed to the decision.

"A large part of these jobs are managing failure and we have made the tough calls and canceled shows that we would otherwise love to stay on the air".

Of course, there's no way the renewal has anything to do with the show's open hostility toward President Donald Trump and his supporters, right? "Once Upon a Time" Season 7 will take the 8 p.m. EDT timeslot and "Marvel's Inhumans" will air at 9 p.m. EDT. "With that in mind, I will no longer be watching any ABC shows", the petition reads.

Callista Gingrich tapped to be ambassador to the Vatican
Callista was a major factor in her husband's conversion to Catholicism, but also played a role in breaking up his second marriage. Newt Gingrich entered the Catholic Church in 2009; his earlier unions have been annulled.


The petition also points out that several characters on the sitcom lean liberal, but that all the characters are able to get along and support each other despite their political differences.

Still, viewers are clearly not happy about the demise of "Last Man Standing".

Dungey wouldn't specifically address a reporter's question about whether politics played any role in the show's axing. But I cancelled Last Man Standing for the same business and scheduling reasons that I cancelled The Real O'Neals, Dr. Ken, The Catch and American Crime. "If you want to help try to save 'Last Man Standing, ' I encourage you to do the same".

Networks are now announcing decisions about which series will live to see another season, and Last Man Standing didn't make the cut. "Let them hear our voices".

The actor appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in March and joked about being a Republican in Hollywood. You gotta be real careful around here, you know.
