They would marathon babies crying if they thought it would bring viewers. Ratings are all that matter to the networks. Maybe his politics didn't earn him any favors. If he thinks that I won't dispute it. But that's life; if the money was there he would still be on TV.

Successful shows get cancelled all the time. ABC dropped this in favor for the Roseanne return.

Not to mention The Jerry Springer Show is like, 25 years running.

I kind of lost faith in Television just now.

Ratings don't seem to be the issue, there's money to be made there.

Number 3 for overall viewers, with less drop than any other ABC show.

Not sure if I can trust the DailyWire, but the note at the end of the second article states that networks executives states that demographic ratings are important. I am not sure I understand why though, especially in comparison to the other shows, such as Once Upon a Time and Marvel's Agents of Shield.

There may be a few reasons for those specific shows. ABC owns Disney, and both those shows are produced with Disney's property, and as the owner to such rights, they eek out a bigger profit than having another studio produce a show and having to split it. There is also the possibility that Comedy Friday is being axed as a whole to make way for shows like 20/20, Marvel's Inhumans, and other shows.

One of the statements ushered by ABC points that comedy on Friday was being axed because other comedies were not doing well enough to sustain a comedy Friday block.

That being said, it may be possible that it was due to political bigotry ,but large scale changes are not unheard of.
Anyhoo, a fantasy/scifi block? On TV? That is not meant to be Z Grade Snarkbait?

Granted, special effects technology has gotten better, but this is an extraordinarily risky move. Jesus. Shows like Terra Nova tanked because of their high production values.

I thought they killed Roseanne so that the show could never, ever come back?

Not quite, Dan did not survive his heart attack at the end of season 8 and the Conners did not win the lotto. The final season was a "what if" season. Only revealing at the end of the last episode it was all made up in Roseanne's head to help her cope with her grief. It was a pretty depressing way to go and fans hated it. I'm guessing they'll omit that last season in the new show since John Goodman is confirmed for the return.

The issue is, essentially, money and planning. ABC cancelled several shows that were from external studios during this upcoming season (Time After Time, Dr. Ken, Imaginary Mary, ...), they've decided to stop airing comedy on Fridays (with nowhere for "Last Man.." to go, especially with the Roseanne revival coming out soon), and that's pretty much the reality of television program planning. With the fact that the show was on its sixth season and contracts were up for renegotiations (whereas ABC would be fronting the cost to FOX to produce more episodes for an old series), you can't really blame them.

I hate to point this out but.... isn't this kind of a "Conservative SJW" topic? There's no fire, just smoke that's being created by conservatives just because Tim Allen said something that could have been considered "controversial". Reality is that he probably knew it was a high possibility and didn't want it to impact his career in the long-term (considering his age - he's falling into the whole John Ritter-age of television, too young to stop acting but too old to take on major roles outside of network television). Shows with good ratings die all the time, unfortunately.

Wait, so the only reason you have to believe the show's cancellation was political is that someone who wrote a petition said that's the reason? Get back to me when there's something more solid.

Um, it ran for six years and 130 episodes.

ABC's production contract with 21st Century Fox expired at the end of season 6. To renew it, ABC would need to cover production costs themselves instead of Fox producing it and licensing it to them. This is all business.

Leave the conspiracy theories to DeadlyOats. Its not a good look on you.

Are you sure it was not a Friday night Sitcom that garner a niche fanbase that dwindled as seasons went on? The lineup for Friday sitcoms is neither popular or strong.


No. It could only be a conspiracy. Like the conspiracy that put down Jeff Foxworthy's sitcom after two seasons. How else could Tim Allen enjoy two nationally syndicated, pretty successful sitcoms and a film career? There's evil afoot, PV! E---------------vi--------------l!!!!!
