Despite very good ratings, Tim Allen’s show ‘Last Man Standing’ was cancelled last year, sparking outcry from fans. The show was one of the few programs enjoyed by conservative TV watchers, many of whom believed the cancellation had something to do with the show’s politics.
Now that Roseanne Barr’s show has been rebooted to tremendous ratings, there are rumblings in Hollywood about a revival of Tim Allen’s show.
TIM ALLEN’S ‘LAST MAN STANDING’ TOP OF FOX’S REBOOT LIST
The reboot bug has bitten FOX hard, and the biggest beneficiary is Tim Allen’s recently-canceled show, “Last Man Standing.”
Our FOX sources tell us Allen’s show — which was controversially canceled last year — is now under serious consideration for a reboot. There were rumors the show was canceled because of Allen’s personal conservative affiliations — he compared being a conservative in Hollywood to 1930’s Nazi Germany, as well as the conservative character he portrayed on the show.
The irony … we’re told the success of “Roseanne” has intrigued FOX because there appears to be a big Trump-supporting audience out there. FOX produced the show when it aired on ABC, and we’re told the talk now is to possibly reboot and put it on FOX.
If the power players in Hollywood want people to watch, they would be crazy not to do this.
