Fans of the TV hit “Last Man Standing” are furious over the unexpected cancelling of one of ABC’s most popular shows. Many believe the show’s star, Tim Allen and his proud conservative views, have everything to do with it. Viewers want answers and have vowed to boycott the TV network in support of Allen and the show, also starting online petitions against ABC.
The Washington Examiner adds, “‘Last Man Standing’ is one of the only shows on broadcast television, and the only sitcom, that is not constantly shoving liberal ideals down the throats of the viewers. And sadly, that is likely the real reason the show has been cancelled,” said a new petition on Change.org which collected nearly 10,000 signatures overnight.
“With a plethora of ultra-liberal shows available on television, this show stood out from the rest and motivated conservatives who voted for President Trump. Please demand that Congress investigate whether LMS was cancelled for political reasons,” said another on PetitionCongress.org.
Their appeals to ABC followed a blunt statement from Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker that the cancellation reeked of politics.
.@ofcTimAllen Looks like @ABC is playing politics with your show despite decent ratings. Sad.https://t.co/FQo9H55QcR
