Viewers who back both conservative values and actor Tim Allen are taking on ABC, which recently announced it had cancelled Mr. Allen’s hit show “Last Man Standing” despite very respectable ratings.

“Last Man Standing stands out in the sea of network television sitcoms. It is a show that appeals to a broad swath of Americans who find very few shows that extol the virtues with which they can identify; namely conservative values,” states a new public petition on Change.org, asking ABC not to cancel the prime-time program, and calling for a public boycott of the network and its advertisers.

The petition is closing in on 200,000 signatures picked up in the last 72 hours, and is expected to keep drawing intense interest from vexed viewers.

“Last Man Standing was not just selling conservative ideals though, as some of the characters in the show are clearly of the liberal persuasion, yet the characters on the show all manage to get along and take care of one another, despite their politically opposed views. The show is about more than politics though, it is about family. In fact, politics is only a secondary part of the show, but one in which many Americans can readily identify,” the petition continues.

“Last Man Standing is one of the only shows on broadcast television, and the only sitcom, that is not constantly shoving liberal ideals down the throats of the viewers. And sadly, that is likely the real reason the show has been canceled.”
