ABC cancels “Last Man Standing” because it is Trump Friendly.
Such a loss!
“Last Man Standing” has been a funny harbor in the storm for people who might like to see occasional conservative thought sneak into a sea of predominantly liberal programming.
Via Daily Wire:
Through his character, the politically conservative Allen has poked fun at Hillary Clinton, political correctness, and the Left at large. Worse still, he has created a popular, sympathetic and likable television personality who holds the beliefs and values our entertainment and media elites want to tell us can only belong to Nazis.
The show had high ratings, even after six years and being shifted to a Friday night slot.
Every week, the half-hour comedy, one of the very few aimed to appeal to America’s heartland, won its time-slot in the all-important demo, including 6.4 million overall same-day viewers. Deadline further adds that “[w]hile most returning shows were down year-to-year 20-30%, LMS was virtually flat, off just by 5% in total viewers and adults 18-49[.]”
It’s been a solid lead-in for shows the rest of the night.
Even more than that, it’s been a bonanza in syndication, “a virtual cash cow, per Deadline it is the “rare off-network ratings success story these days.””
