[ # ] Could CMT save Last Man Standing?
June 14th, 2017 under CMT, Tim Allen


Last month when ABC announced its 2017-2018 schedule, Last Man Standing was not on it. It was a shock because it was one of there top rated shows. Therefore, the cancellation was a huge surprise. Some people assumed it was given the axe because of Tim Allen’s political views, which I do not think was the case. I think Tim Allen was the reason it was cancelled and that is because he became too expensive to the network that recently picked up the costly American Idol and renewed Modern Family for 2 more seasons with a large expensive ensemble cast. The latter show is from the same outside studio (20th Century Fox), and networks are now trying to pick up shows from the same studio as them. If that makes sense.

When the network was asked why they did not renew the show that has a loyal fan base Channing Dungey, President, ABC Entertainment, explained her decision as because they decided to get rid of comedies on Friday nights, there was no room for the sitcom. Even Shark Tank found itself airing on a new night.

Anyways, out of all of the cancelled shows, I knew that LMS had the best chance of being picked up by someone else. Now according to The Hollywood Reporter, it looks CMT will be that someone else. This would not be the first time that CMT saved an ABC show, last year they picked up Nashville. Something that has proven to be a smart choice for them. Here is to hoping they revive LMS because I actually really enjoy the show. I liked that they tackle both sides of political issues and still make me laugh.

If you want CMT to pick up Last Man Standing, then you better send them your love arrows!
