Shaun,I watched the show regularly, and loved it.One of the few
decent shows on TV. No wonder I don't watch too much TV.Sad to see
It's a shrewd move on ABC's part to have chosen Once Upon A Time to
replace Last Man Standing. This season, on Sunday, OUAT had a 20% lower 18-49
demographic than LMS and itâ€™s viewership in that demo dropped over 31%
from the previous season. OUAT had a total viewership of 3.1 million people
compared to LMSâ€™s 6.4 million viewers. But maybe ABC can
reverse OUATâ€™s diving viewership and knock it out of the park on
Fridayâ€™s, itâ€™s got a solid well loved cast right? Well no
least not anymore. SIX of itâ€™s main characters are leaving the show, among
them original stars Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan) Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White),
Josh Dallas (Prince Charming), Rebecca Mader (Zelena), Jared Gilmore (Henry) and
Emilie de Ravin (Belle). The series story arc really ended when the good guys
won the War during the 2016/17 season and the smart cast members have left
before the show collapsed.So now ABC plans to move the gutted OUAT,
that did not surpass LMS in any metric when it had its full cast this year, to
replace LMS, which has ABC's the third highest viewership, higher 18-49
demographics , and three million more viewers. Sounds like a solid
business plan ABC. Great "tough decision."
The show did trick a lot of people into believing Tim Allen espouses
conservative values, soooooo pretty impressive writing.
I wonder how many people complaining about the cancelling of this show actually
Capitalism is to blame for this, not Hollywood.If the show was
likely to make more money for the network you can bet it would be renewed.
Hollywood's first loyalty is to it's bottom line.Of course
I prefer Capitalism to Socialism, but don't blame Hollywood for this one.
@ hahaha those sound like very impressive numbers and a bit made up.
the facts are 58 shows an counting have been canceled for next session, last
man standings rating barely got it renewed last year and that it is an expensive
series that ABC has no ownership stake in because it is produced by 20th century
fox and you still would be better off with the petition to the network and maybe
one to Tim Allen urging him to take a cut in his salary that makes up a large
portion of the cost then continuing with the conspiracy theories on here.
" no evidance and no explanation why three other none conservative shows
were also canceled at the same time but it's definitely a libreal
conspericy/ politically motivated that's for sure."Here is
the explanation: Last Man Standing audience = 10 million (or whatever the number
is) viewers per episode. Other 3 "non-conservative" shows that were
cancelled = 31 combined total viewers (or whatever the number is) per episode.
10 million is much bigger number then 31, so much easier to sale profitable
advertising to 10 million then 31.
So when ABC did the following, they weren't liberal..Created
and aired a pilot for 'Last Man Standing'Approving a series for
'Last Man Standing' based on the pilotHiring and paying writers,
directors, staff, crew and cast for 'Last Man Standing'Soliciting advertising for the seriesRan the series for 6 yearsBut when they decide to cancel the show, it's clearly because they are
Blame it on the liberals because, you know, because.I loved the show
and they made as much fun of "conservative values" as they did liberals.
We have no evidance and no explanation why three other none conservative shows
were also canceled at the same time but it's definitely a libreal
conspericy/ politically motivated that's for sure.
This show has been a breath of fresh air. ABC can spin it any way they want,
but when a show has the ratings that this one does; you renew it for more years
not cancel it. The other shows mentioned did not have the same level of
ratings. This is a show that everyone can enjoy. Sad to see it go.
Of course it is political, and so will my not watching the last Modern family
show (of the season) tonight. Netflix would be foolish not to pick
Dont overlook the liberal movie studio actions as being political.Would be nice if another network took over the cancelled show. American Idle
just changed networks after being cancelled.I liked this show.
@haSo was it some "liberal gestapo" that got the very
liberal "the real O'Neal" and the other two none conservative show
canceled? Not everything is a huge liberal conspiracy. The petition might be a
better way to go. If they get enough people that express interest in the show
they may bring it back were as consperecy theories in a local paper just draws
Nobody plays the role of censorship gestapo better then liberals, leftists and
their hollywood hack media ninnies, do they?
They also canceled 'the real oneals that most of you would consider very
liberal, did it the other two show canceled get canceled because of some big
right wing consperecy? Sometimes shows (and actors) just run thin on story lines
and get canceled, it happens to every show at some point.
No, Brave Sir Robin, it is the other end of the spectrum that falls within the
category you refer to. The mighty arm of liberalism, with the power of the
press and screen, is more adept at twisting facts and playing the victim of
anything or anyone not in harmony with the ideals they espouse. It is
liberalism that draws this nation closer and closer to the chaos our
constitution was drawn up to avoid...which should put us precisely where you
would apparently like to be.
America is about laws and freedoms. Libs want neither
It was the #2 sitcom on their network but it was too conservative for the
keepers of Hollywoods self appointed political correctness division of the
liberal executives progressive indoctrination agenda for the masses.
The radicalism, in your face, gun waving, deport everone, thingy is softening
and I hope it is forever gone.America is about unity!
Last Man Standing really was the best comedy show on TV over the last decade. I
highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't given it a try yet. Tim Allen was an expert at making liberals look the fools they are! Which is
why they're all on here rejoicing that their thin skins won't have to
endure any more being poked fun of.
@ Hutterite"The keepers of conservative values...are always
victims when the detect a perceived slight."When I saw the
headline, I thought, "This is the very reaction that many conservatives
criticize in minorities when they cry "racism" or
"discrimination." "Maybe it's just because you weren't
good enough!" some say. Yes. Maybe that's it.
What about all these late night talk shows, what about CNN, what about Saturday
Night Live,this is a joke. This needs to stop
@VanceoneNobody plays the victim like a conservative, do they?
Fascism. Tim Allen is too vocal in his conservative values. Totally disagree
with Hutterite. The libs will stick to ideology over money 9 out of 10 times.
And I guess is a demented kind of way should be commended for that.
You'd think that the media would value making a profit... but lately,
having the right politics matters more. Just look at ESPN, which
fired almost exclusively white people and got rid of any trace of conservative
commentators; and now is going to have MSNBC do SportsCenter. Even
the DeseretNews, which had a reputation of not being a leftist lacky and actual,
independant voices, has lurched to the left at a huge rate. What's the
difference between the DNews and the angry, bitter, Democrat house organ known
as the Tribune? Of course ABC would pull the trigger on a
conservative show. Can't have the people exposed to something like
morality, can we!
If the decision was political, then Fox should pick it up, right? After all,
they have to replace the "no spin zone". Then again, after recent
payouts, maybe they can't afford to pick up the show.
If it was making money and would likely continue to make money in the next
season, I imagine they would have kept it. The keepers of conservative
values, the self appointed correct among us, are always victims when the detect
a perceived slight.
