Tim Allen is not the resentful type. He is not the type of person who would go off and do something outrageous. His reaction to the news that ABC was cutting his show was very subtle, but nonetheless a powerful message.
In case you missed it, ABC News recently announced they were cutting Tim Allen’s show “The Last Man Standing.” The decision to nix the third-most-watched comedy show in the history of the ABC Network was a huge shock to many loyal viewers. Frustration and surprise ensued.
The truth they simply cannot hide here is that ABC cancelled “The Last Man Standing” because of politics.
The weak excuse that they are looking into changing the line-up, and getting rid of Friday comedy shows, is also a bunch of nonsense.
Just change the program to another day, ABC. You have so many failing shows, finding an alternative time slot would not be that hard.
Despite all of this, Tim Allen didn’t make much of a fuss about it. He just moved on. Although he did use his Twitter account to express his sadness over the show being canceled.
Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years. #lastmanstanding

The good news is, rumors have since begun to swirl that “Last Man Standing” may continue to air after all. Sources inside Fox suggest the show will move to Fox and its affiliates along with “certain streaming services.” The show is actually owned by 20th Century Fox, a subsidiary of Fox Entertainment Group a.k.a Fox, not ABC.
ABC has canceled the show, but since it is owned by Fox, Fox can just move it. We are told that negotiations are under way with Fox and their affiliates to find a time for the show on their network. The Official Announcement to come within the next month.
ABC has angered Conservatives by canceling the show. Tim Allen was the clear victim of an attack on Conservatives which will further hurt ABCs bottom line. Finally, It looks like the Last Man Standing will be Tim Allen, at a new time and place with Fox.
Even if Fox falls through, send “Last Man Standing” over to CMT or the Hallmark Channel. Both stations are already showing re-runs of the show on their networks anyway, and would likely be glad to pick it up for another season, at the very least (especially CMT, who flung their noses at ABC executives by renewing “Nashville” for a fifth season after ABC cancelled it).
So Last Man Standing will get a new home, and we won’t forget what ABC did.
