Tim Allen, hilarious star of the Most Cancelled Show On Network TV in 2017, opened up to the Hollywood Reporter last fall about his own views before Disney/ABC informed him that his ratings would no longer fit in with their corporate image of Totally In The Tank For Communism:
Why has the show gone after Hillary but not Trump?
It's a little surprising to me. We have a very liberal writing staff, so I’m surprised they haven’t taken a shot at him. But we’re not sure he’s going to last, whereas the Clintons are like herpes: Just when you think they’re gone, they show up again.
Didn’t you try a bit about Obama raising the communist flag at the White House that never made it to air?Allen is still the stand-up genius that ABC neutered for Home Improvement, and turned loose for Last Man Standing. But as the cancellation showed, we can't be having any more of that.
We got network notes saying you can’t call the president a communist. So, of course, I really wanted to. I do it in rehearsal all day long.
So now you'll just have to binge-watch the whole series on DVD, with no commercials.Boo frickin' hoo.
For bonus points, maybe bootlegged from China, so his corporate overlords get shorted to boot.
