Did Tim Allen’s conservatism cost him his show? James Woods thinks so.

After six seasons, and despite good ratings, Allen’s series “Last Man Standing” was just cancelled ABC. In a tweet, star Allen wrote: “Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years. #lastmanstanding

Allen is known to have conservative opinions, which he sometimes works into the show.

Shortly after James Woods, a known Hollywood conservative, replied to Allen in his own tweet: “You're just a fantastic talent, Tim. Too bad you also have a brain and a few opinions of your own. Looks like that cost you your job.”

 

On a Tuesday conference call with reporters, ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey defended the decision to cancel the show. “A large part of these jobs are managing failure and we’ve made the tough calls and canceled shows that we’d otherwise love to stay on the air,” Dungey said. “That’s the job. I canceled ‘Last Man Standing’ for the same business and scheduling reasons that I canceled ‘Dr. Ken,’ ‘The Real O’Neals,’ ‘The Catch’ and ‘American Crime.’ And ‘Last Man Standing’ was a challenging one for me because it was a steady performer in the ratings, but once we made the decision not to continue with comedies on Fridays, that was where we landed.”

 

 


Disappointed fans have launched petitions to save the show.
