I gave up on Last Man Standing halfway through the first season so it being cancelled doesn't hurt me. However, controversy has been stirred up because conservatives are saying the show was cancelled because it was a conservative show with a conservative star (Tim Allen) and that ABC wants to be a big liberal TV corporation. First, let me say how sad I am for those special conservative snowflakes who can't get over the loss of their show.
Second, the show being conservative had nothing to do with it. ABC also cancelled The Real O'Neals, a liberal show with a gay teen as its main star. It also cancelled Dr. Ken, one of the few shows starring Asian-Americans. Those actions don't really line up with a network that wants to be more liberal.
It sucks whenever a show that someone loves gets cancelled but that doesn't mean there's a vast conspiracy out to the show. Well, except for Timeless. There was a conspiracy against that show but luckily Lucy, Wyatt, and Rufus managed to defeat them using their time machine.
