He’s a likeable conservative and portrayed one in a sitcom, until ABC cancelled Last Man Standing
Comedian Tim Allen suggested in an interview that being a likeable conservative, and portraying one positively, got his show cancelled. Personally, I think the Trump win is what made the series odious to the decisionmakers at ABC.
Looper lists a lot of reasons, but the political one stands out and the rise of Trump is specifically mentioned.
“I have no idea why [ABC] did what they did.” But that doesn’t stop him from suggesting that the decision came down to his conservative politics.
“I always wanted Last Man Standing to be like [All in the Family],” he says. “Archie Bunker pushed boundaries, but Carroll O’Connor was not that guy at all. [Mike Baxter was] a version of that guy. But there’s nothing more dangerous, especially in this climate, than a funny, likable conservative.”
