“Tim the Toolman Taylor” took on a new face as “Outdoor Man” on popular show, Last Man Standing, the ratings have been through the roof. Tim Allen’s character is not politically correct, and he is definitely not a snowflake. In fact he is quite the opposite. Allen is portrayed as a man’s man with strong morals and patriotism for his country. He also heavily supports our Republican president, Donald Trump, and takes jabs at Obummer throughout the past six season. It is such a refreshing and comedic show to watch, because it is very relatable and isn’t pumped full of the liberal mumbo jumbo.
Unfortunately, the licensing switched hands from 20th Century Fox TV to ABC, who then announced the show was being nixed. You can probably guess that their excuse for cancelling the show isn’t because it favors Conservatives. Instead they blamed it on finances. However, Last Man Standing is quite literally a cash cow.
The real money in the sitcom business comes from syndication rights, selling the reruns on a per episode basis to other networks. Last Man Standing is not only a syndication smash, a virtual cash cow, per Deadline it is the “rare off-network ratings success story these days.”
When a show does this well in syndication, every episode becomes a bar of gold, a likely source of rolling revenue for years and years to come. Even aging sitcoms that lose their audience are sometimes renewed for an extra season because each of those episodes is worth a fortune in syndication.
We aren’t as stupid as liberals would like to believe. Obviously, ABC can choose to produce and terminate whatever shows they would like. Here’s the fun part though: we as viewers also have the choice to choose what we watch.
With that being said, there seems to be a boycott of ABC on the horizon, and the sun is quickly rising.
Washington Examiner reports:
Petitions and boycotts against ABC are building after the network unexpectedly canceled its hit “Last Man Standing,” a move critics believe was prompted by star Tim Allen’s outspoken conservative politics and support for President Trump.
“With a plethora of ultra-liberal shows available on television, this show stood out from the rest and motivated conservatives who voted for President Trump. Please demand that Congress investigate whether LMS was cancelled for political reasons,” said another on PetitionCongress.org.
I’m on board with a boycott. Are you?
