Angry Conservatives boycott ABC over cut; unite in effort to save ‘Last Man Standing’

Actions have consequences.

ABC Entertainment’s abrupt and unexpected cancellation of its popular sitcom, “Last Man Standing,” has prompted a flurry of outrage, calls to boycott the network and at least two petitions asking that ABC keep the show, starring comedian Tim Allen, in its lineup.

Titled, “Save Tim Allen’s Show ‘Last Man Standing,’” one petition, drafted and posted Sunday by someone with the handle “Deputy Matt,” garnered more than 11,000 signatures in less than 24 hours.

“‘Last Man Standing’ stands out in the sea of network television sitcoms,” the petition states. “It is a show that appeals to a broad swath of Americans who find very few shows that extol the virtues with which they can identify; namely conservative values.”

But the petitioner emphasized that the show wasn’t merely about politics — it promoted family values by depicting a family whose members are able to work things out despite having widely differing political views — Congress take note.

But it was apparently the conservative Tim Allen character the network executives zeroed in on.

“Last Man Standing is one of the only shows on broadcast television, and the only sitcom, that is not constantly shoving liberal ideals down the throats of the viewers,” Deputy Matt continued.  “And sadly, that is likely the real reason the show has been cancelled.”

A similar Change.org petition was initiated by Audra Abbott, asking ABC to “Bring Back Last Man Standing.”

But while Change.org was the preferred venue to call on ABC to keep Tim Allen alive, social media became the battleground for declaring outright war against the network.

One even called for using tactics favored by the wild-eyed lunatic left.

ABC announced last week that it would be cancelling “Last Man Standing,” despite its wildly favorable Friday night ratings and its ability to keep viewers tuned into the network.
