‘ Last Man Standing’ Cancelled After Six Seasons
ABC has cancelled Tim Allen’s long-running show, ‘Last Man Standing.’
Rumors of cancellation have plague the show for several seasons, but this time, it’s official. The show aired on Friday nights on the network, and was one of the few family shows you could catch on a Friday night. It was also the network’s second highest rated show.
The issue with this show, as opposed to ratings, appeared to be the series’ license fee. According to Deadline, “ABC is supposed to cover the cost of the show at this point in its run, and LMS is on the higher end for a multi-camera sitcom because of the marquee salary Allen commands, but 20th TV had agreed to license fee reductions in the past and reportedly were open to another one. This time, there was no negotiating or bargaining, with ABC simply deciding against another season.”
