'Last Man Standing': CMT in Preliminary Talks to Revive Tim Allen Comedy

'Last Man Standing': CMT in Preliminary Talks to Revive Tim Allen Comedy”

Dungey denied allegations that the show was canceled because of Allen's conservative leaning or the show's Christian themes.

Cable budgets are smaller than Network budgets, CMT is a small cable network to begin with, and "Last Man Standing" was fairly expensive, so the cast would need to take a major cut, or the budget would need to be reduced in some other significant way. Additionally, CMT has been pushing for new originally scripted shows, like "Still the King.' Therefore, it seems as though the adoption of 'Last Man Standing" would be the best move for the network.

Country Music Television (CMT) may be coming to the rescue of Tim Allen's sitcom, "Last Man Standing".

Insiders said multiple options are on the table for the series including a short-order run or a multi-season deal.

In its sixth and final season, which aired on Fridays, Last Man Standing averaged a 8.1 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49.

The cancellation of the comedy really stuck in the craw of some fans, who accused ABC of axing the show because it exhibits conservative values.

Finding a new home for "Last Man Standing" has been a priority for 20th Century Fox Television, which produces the show, since it was canceled.

"Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years", Allen said.

Though the show followed the sitcom formula of not featuring any major story arcs per season, the final season featured many character progressions and changes, including the marriage of Mandy and Kyle, as well as Eve struggling to figure out her future after not getting into her dream school and moving between her parents' and Eve's houses. The cancellation was among the biggest surprises to come from the broadcast networks during the pre-upfront decision-making period.
