Also, Last Man Standing got 5 seasons despite not being that great or popular. And he's going to be in Toy Story 4. Tim Allen has hardly been shunned from Hollywood.
Last Man Standing had above cancellation ratings and was actually one of ABC´s top-rated comedy shows.
And no Tim Allen is not shunned but clearly his conservative-leaning show was not cancelled because it did not bring in viewers.
Seriously? How were it's ratings compared to According to Jim? Cause that's another show that went on way longer than it had any right to. I guess there is just this massive demographic of people I'm completely out of touch with that like really bland jokes. My parents didn't even watch these shows, and they are huge Everybody Loves Raymond fans.
ABC´s current Friday 8 pm is Once upon a time and is doing around 2mill viewers and 0.4 in 18-49
ABC Last Man Standing, was the same slot and did 1.2-1.5 and had around 5.5-6.2 mill viewers.
Not even Agents of Shield (which btw has gone on way too long and has taken a turn so bad no one can recover that) can pick up even close to the ratings from Last Man Standing.
So not sure why you mean it has gone on too long? it was doing better than any other ABC show not to mention it has major success in syndication.
Nah, the only reason why the female exec, cancelled Last man Standing was because of its conservative nature.
...or you know it could have been due to a number of scheduling, financial, and contractual issues that lead to it being cancelled after running for 6 seasons
