While Tim Allen's Last Man Standing character will remain a conservative when it returns, he won't be giving any pro-Donald Trump monologues.

"I go away back with Rosie and that's not the Rosie I know", Tim said. I'm not the character I play. But he added that it was a "financial decision on ABC's part".

Roseanne enjoyed a ratings boom when it returned to ABC this spring - and also had an outspoken conservative star - but Abbott drew a distinct line between that show and Last Man Standing: "The Roseanne reboot handled a lot of topical issues... we don't really do issues of the week". 'I think that they're going to tell the same type of stories that they told during its run on ABC'. "Whatever's good for his business and good for the state of Colorado, the policies and stuff, he's going to go with [that]", he said.

The actor, who went on to say that "it's a very icy time", added that in his 38-year span of being a comedian, he has "never seen it". Subscribe here to our YouTube channel to make sure you don't miss it, and you can check out our most-recent Last Man Standing video below.

Meanwhile, the Last Man Standing crew addressed comparisons drawn by fans and foes alike between their show and Roseanne.

But right now, Arsenal look to have made the greatest strides, even though this was the summer that many at the club had dreaded. This is the most important thing. 'I've learned from this and now I am happy to start a new season'.


"I don't think that we're going to comment specifically on Trump", executive producer Kevin Abbot said.

The reboot of Roseanne's show was one of the most watched shows on ABC but still the network made a decision to cancel the show saying, "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show". I don't really believe it was a political decision.

Allen added with regards to the difficulties comedians face at the moment: "It's a odd, frightful time, and I don't think we're all made of glass". The comedian always asked that ABC give him a head's up over Last Man Standing's renewal status to account for his standup schedule. At the time of its cancelation the show was the second most watched comedy at the network during the 2016-2017 season. It's not unusual for networks to poach canceled shows from their competition, but waiting a full calendar year before making that move is.

The show will premiere on Fox on September 28.
