Tim Allen is not the vengeful type. At least he isn’t the kind of person who would go off and do something outrageous. His response to the news that ABC was cutting his show was much more subtle, but none the less a powerful message.
ABC News announced they were cutting Tim Allen’s show “The Last Man Standing.” The announcement to cancel the third most watched comedy show in the history of ABC was a shock to loyal viewers. Frustration and surprise followed the announcement.
Tim Allen didn’t make much of a fuss about it. At the time it seemed he had just moved on. Although he did use his Twitter account to express his sadness over the show being canceled.
Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years. #lastmanstanding

Rumors began to swirl that “Last Man Standing” may continue after all. About a year ago sources inside Fox suggested the show would move to Fox and its affiliates along with “certain streaming services.” The show is actually owned by 20th Century Fox, a subsidiary of Fox Entertainment Group a.k.a Fox, not ABC.
ABC canceled the show, but since it is owned by Fox, Fox can just move it. I was told over a year ago that negotiations were underway with Fox and their affiliates to find a time for the show on their network. I was told it would be a few months.
A few months it was indeed. Just a few days ago, Fox announced it would be taking on the Last Man Standing for Season 7.
This article went super viral when I wrote it a year ago. The idea that Tim Allen would be the Last Man Standing over ABC was appealing to a lot of Americans back then. It doesn’t get much better than this!
Tim has already started teasing about the upcoming season…
