When ABC cancelled Tim Allen’s show last year it was one of those things that made absolutely no sense at all. Sitcoms aside from the salaries of the cast are not really all that expensive to produce, they have been doing sitcoms production wise pretty much the same way since the beginning of time.
Last Man Standing was one of the highest rated things on ABC and they knew it, yet the network pulled the plug because they were spending too much money wearing out their fainting couches from all the Hillary Clinton jokes.
Tim Allen is feeling inspired by fans who have recently begun petitioning again for a “Last Man Standing” revival.
“Last Man Standing” fans called on ABC to bring back Allen’s show after Roseanne Barr revealed on Monday her sitcom character is a Trump supporter in the upcoming “Roseanne” reboot headed to the network. Allen’s show famously featured conservative values and many speculated that was the reason behind its cancellation.
“The support from all the fans to bring back ‘Last Man Standing’ is truly overwhelming to me and so appreciated,” Allen told Fox News exclusively. “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.”
The 64-year-old told us his fans’ recent push to revive “Last Man Standing” has given him hope that the show could make a comeback.
“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,” Allen said.
“My sentiment sits in the front seat beside you.”
Allen, a conservative himself who has voiced his support for President Donald Trump, played Mike Baxter who is also politically conservative on the show which was canceled in May 2017 despite its high ratings.
“Last Man Standing” has been praised for being one of the few shows that appeal to a conservative viewership and ABC vehemently denied it gave the show the boot over its politics.

In May 2017, the network revealed that it would not be renewing “Last Man Standing” for a seventh season.
The sixth and final season of the show, which skews more toward a blue-collar audience, was the network’s second most-watched comedy with 8.1 million views, behind only the seemingly untouchable “Modern Family,” which scored 8.7 million in the same year.
