It’s been a minute since we last talked about Last Man Standing, and the show being cancelled for what totally weren’t political reasons.
NARRATOR: The show was cancelled for political reasons.
Tim Allen spoke out about it recently.
There’s no way that you’d ever get anybody who made the decision to cop to [the show being cancelled because of politics]. It’s all conjecture. … I can tell you that everything about this television show (that), from my point of view, was important to the television network that had it, they dismissed.
The fan base, they dismissed. The fact that it showed great diversity of thought and entertainment, they dismissed. That didn’t seem to matter. … I think they made a terrible mistake with a very creative project. It could have done so many things.
He also had some comments about the direction Hollywood is taking (see Leftist Hollywood to Roll out Unoriginal Illegal Immigration Comedy and Actor/Idiot T.J. Miller Admits Hollywood Should Push Progressivism on Kids). Spoiler alert, much like everyone reading this right now, he’s not a fan.
I know they ignore them! Just watch what’s on TV. Look at the crop of television shows coming out and tell me who they’re trying to interest. It’s a very small group that thinks it knows what’s best for the rest of us. …
There’s a huge fan base of people out there that don’t need to have opinions shoved down their throat. They have their own opinions…
Yeah, but the fans’ opinions are different from the ten or so people who make decisions about what we see on TV. So they don’t count.
What will be counted is the deluge of cord-cutters who’re tired of being spoken down to and finally say “ENOUGH TO THIS CRAP” and ditch network television. But until that time, expect to have Hollywood lectures as often as Hollywood starlets welcome even more STDs in their personal lives.
