Is ‘Last Man Standing’ returning to television???
According to many sources including, Christian Post, the show might be returning to television later this year. That would be a return after a year of being unexpectedly cancelled by ABC.
TVLine’s website reported recently that they’d received confirmation that Tim Allen made a deal with FOX to resurrect the show and credited the recent comeback of the sitcom ‘Roseanne’ for the opportunity. Supposedly, the success of this comedy encouraged FOX that Allen’s sitcom could make a seriously successful comeback. Many websites claim that the show will be making its return for the 2018-2019 television season.
According Fox News, Tim Allen reportedly tweeted last year that he felt “blindsided” by the network which he had called home. ‘Last Man Standing’ had been one of the highest rated comedies of the time on ABC’s network. It had run just behind the show ‘Modern Family’ in ratings with a difference between 6.1 to 6.7 million views live. It was said to be the network’s third most viewed scripted series after Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family.
Many people went into a frenzy last year when the show was cancelled because they believed that his conservative, right winged views upset the network. Viewers all over the country were devastated and passing around petitions to bring the show back. ABC claimed that it was purely a scheduling decision not to schedule comedies on Friday nights, despite the popularity of the show.
In less than one week, Change.org, had gathered over 200,000 signatures on a petition to bring the show back. There was also a movement to boycott ABC until they brought the show back according to many sources including Tim Allen’s co-star, Nancy Travis, who re-tweeted fan efforts for this movement.
