Fox Revives Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing”

So, after the success of the Roseanne revival and realizing that the Tim Allen character was also a Trump supporter and that the show had an eight million strong audience Fox which produced the show for ABC has decided to revive it.     https://decider.com/2018/05/14/fox-explains-last-man-standing-renewal/

I liked the show.  But it was already in its sixth season and the plots were feeling kind of thin.  Also most of the political shots at Obama had evaporated and the wife actually was a Hillary fan so that was pretty rough.  But I think that since they’re bringing it back on the strength of the Roseanne phenomenon that maybe they’ll amp up the Trump love and compete for the conservative voters.  That could work out very well.  Tim Allen could really get some mileage playing both sides of the Trump card.  Playful shots at the larger than life Trump persona and skillful savaging of the anti-American left would go a long way toward giving the right the kind of red meat they haven’t had from television since … never?

So, welcome back Mike Baxter, long may you vlog from your office at Outdoorsman.  And even if it only lasts for a year or two it’s the first time ever that a show came back because it was conservative.  What’s next flying pigs?
