A year ago, Tim Allen and his fans were blindsided after his hit show “Last Man Standing” was cancelled by ABC, despite being ABC’s second highest rated comedy. The move came after comments he made in regards to comparing Hollywood to Nazi Germany, on top of some of his conservative view points along with playing a conservative character on the show. Although, ABC said none of that had anything to do with their decision.
The successful reboot of “Roseanne,” is catching one network’s attention as it appears to signal a high demand for conservative-oriented themes for shows. And one source’s knowledge of the matter could mean very good news for Tim Allen in his quest to bring back “Last Man Standing” to a national audience. See Below
Will “Last Man Standing” Air Again?
According to a report by TMZ,
Our FOX sources tell us Allen’s show — which was controversially canceled last year — is now under serious consideration for a reboot.
The irony … we’re told the success of “Roseanne” has intrigued FOX because there appears to be a big Trump-supporting audience out there. FOX produced the show when it aired on ABC, and we’re told the talk now is to possibly reboot and put it on FOX.
Other shows being considered for reboot are “How I Met Your Dad,” “Married with Children,” “That 70’s Show” and “Malcolm in the Middle,” according to the TMZ report. (Video Below)
Back in January, Allen told Fox News he was still highly interested in bringing back “Last Man Standing” after “overwhelming” support and demand from his fans. Allen said:
“The support from all the fans to bring back ‘Last Man Standing’ is truly overwhelming to me and so appreciated. I, along with the talented writers, wonderful crew and terrific actors, would definitely entertain the idea of bringing the show back as there is so much gas left in the tank, more to be said, and laughs to be had.”
“I know fans would love nothing more than for us to take the cover off, fire up the engine, back this car out of the garage and get it back on the highway, full-throttle. My sentiment sits in the front seat beside you.” (Video Below)
As the needle moves back over to the right, shows with a conservative storyline may be back on the up and up.
The failing viewership of liberal-based awards shows, such as the Oscars, has been a warning signal for some time. And the ratings success of Roseanne apparently is the icing on the cake, that now proves to networks that Americans demand change in TV programs.
