The sitcom “Last Man Standing” starring Tim Allen has been cancelled after six seasons. The show’s high ratings have led some viewers and critics to speculate that ABC discontinued it due to Allen’s conservative views.

According to Fox News, the sitcom, about a man who is outnumbered by his wife and three daughters, was the television network’s second highest comedy this season. It averaged 8.1 million viewers. In addition, it was ABC’s third highest watched scripted series, following the popular “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Modern Family.”

Commentators and fans of the show were quick to suggest that the show was cancelled due to Tim Allen’s conservative views and the conservative-leaning views of his character in the show.

 

 

Allen has joked that being a conservative in Hollywood is like living in 1930s Germany. He has also stated, “What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully. But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.”
