ABC Denies Last Man Standing Was Cancelled for Political Reasons

Many have been wondering the circumstances behind the sudden cancellation a few months ago of Tim Allen's hit conservative TV show, "Last Man Standing".

Samsung Galaxy S9: No Under Display Fingerprint Scanner; Substrate Like PCB Mainboard
The advanced Substrate-like PCB (SLP) mainboards stack chips more tightly to reduce the space occupied by components. Samsung Galaxy S9 , which is Samsung's 2018 flagship, is expected to be announced early next year.

The surprise pull was a head scratcher, given that the blue-collar sitcom was ABC's second most watched comedy in its most recent season, with 8.1 million viewers in Live +7, only behind flagship Modern Family (8.7 million).

In May, Dungey said that cancelling the program had been a hard decision. This petition gained over 300,000 signatures. Dungey also spoke about other shows on ABC that are conservative leaning shows, such as, the upcoming "Roseanne". He told the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles yesterday that, "Politics had absolutely nothing to do with it". "We have actors on out shows who have all sorts of different political views".

East Harling Parish Council vice chairwoman Elizabeth Mould said a lot of villagers walk their dogs in the woods, including her. Chief Superintendent Mike Fawcett said: "The information we have is that he had gone out walking his dogs in the morning".

Dungey still called Allen a valuable member of "the ABC family", and indeed, "Home Improvement" was one of the network's biggest shows of the 1990s - and Allen is, of course, the voice of iconic Disney character Buzz Lightyear.

Dungey, while explaining that the network couldn't find a spot for the series on its schedule, reportedly repeated that Allen's "personal politics had nothing to do with it". Roseanne is another Trump supporter who has no problem discussing her views with the public.
