(5/19/17) A petition has been filed on change.org, following the cancellation of ABC's hit comedy Last Man Standing, featuring conservative 2A supporter Tim Allen. The show was cancelled in spite of the fact that it was ABC's second most popular comedy, with a 1.2 rating and 6.4 million total viewers in it's sixth season according to Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers. The show's conservative lead, played by Allen, has many crying foul and pointing the finger at ABC for cancelling the show due to ABC's left leaning corporate culture. States the petition, "Last Man Standing stands out in the sea of network television sitcoms. It is a show that appeals to a broad swath of Americans who find very few shows that extol the virtues with which they can identify; namely conservative values...The intent of this petition/boycott is to attempt to get ABC to renew the show."
Allen plays Mike Baxter on the show, a marketing guru for the fictional Outdoor Man superstore (think Cabela's). Throughout the show, Baxter espouses his pro First and Second Amendment views, among his other conservative values, while being balanced out by his liberal leaning wife and daughter.
There is, however, already a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel, as Variety is reporting that 20th Century Fox Television is seeking a new home for the show.

These "Network Executives" like so many in other industries have no idea what there doing. Most spend their "work hours" playing politics.

Regarding Jeff Ryan's ignorant post:. sounds like another Nazi - period. It's people like you who make the NRA look bad. Don't forget that "you people" immigrated here without permission! Get a life, and a brain to.

I'm pro gun, but Tim Allen is the last guy that should be used as the poster boy.. Hey he's done federal time for distribution of marijuana. I don't agree with the harsh sentences people get for possession or sale of it, but the fact is he couldn't own a weapon even if he had his record expunged. The BS on immigration should not even enter the issue. Some of the posts sound like Dump Trump himself.

This is such liberal BS! Cancel this show and I'm forever done with ABC.

Another jerk off liberal Democrat. Why don't all you rich liberal Democrats give up 90% of your money and make it better for the people and let him live over there where they came from. But no you're too fucking stupid in an asshole asshole. You don't have to deal with it because you live behind your lock doors and your security. You're a disgrace to the American way of life. And I'll do everything I can do not to watch your shows and not support Disney. I refuse to watch your network or give any of your sponsors any of my money

Also really hope a better network pickups the show.

Any network that would cancel Mr. Allen's show does not deserve my business.

As a Federally Licensed Amateur Radio operator, I resent ABC for doing this. I will do everything in my power to help Mr. Allen resume the show.

Actual petition. What you see above is a screen grab.

Actually a take off of Bass Pro. Notice the Outdoor Man Logo has the fish reversed and the opening scene of the store is an actual Bass Pro in Colorado.
