I can't think of any show that has ever been cancelled or not made because its content was too inappropriate.
Last Man Standing. Got too conservative for the revised woke network it was on. Fox had to pick them back up after a couple of year break.

Was Fox also too woke for it? ABC ran it for six seasons, Fox ran it for three.
It ran it’s course. They needed different actors and all the second time around. Their ratings were crushing when they canceled it at ABC. No one at the network would explain themselves either. He wanted an example and I gave him one. :dunno:

You didn't though.
Quote
"('Last Man Standing') was a challenging one for me because it was a steady performer in the ratings," Dungey said. "Once we made the decision to not continue with comedies on Friday, that was where we landed." (Starting in the fall, fairy tale drama "Once Upon a Time" moves to Friday nights, taking over the timeslot from "Last Man Standing" and "Dr. Ken.")

"Last Man Standing" is also produced by outside studio 20th Century Fox TV, and not ABC Studios, which means there's less potential financial reward for ABC's parent company, Disney. While Dungey said that many reasons go into a cancellation decision (ratings, viewer engagement, critical acclaim, ideas for future seasons), ownership structure plays a role. Still, she said, "I wouldn't say that was the sole factor in not bringing 'Last Man Standing' back."

Even if you don't believe that, the narrative from the professional victims in conservative media was the show got cancelled because Allen was a trump supporter, not because of the content of the show.

I guess we’ll both just believe what we want to on the matter. Lol at canceling Last Man Standing over those other shows I’ve never heard of. It’s ok to admit the media/networks leans left and treats the two sides differently.

I'm just here for the members of the movement that swim in a sea of victimhood, even developed an entire economy/ecosystem around being victims, talking about professional victims.

Btw, that’s the laziest response to the cancellation of that show that I’ve ever seen. Especially how the climate was getting at the time. They didn’t want to get run over by the times, so they pushed Tim Allen & show as rough ridin' far away as they could.

Cancelling Last Man Standing over which two shows? Are you referring to a different quote? The one I posted didn't refer to last man standing getting cancelled over two other shows.

For the sake of agreement, I'll say that the media/networks are actually the same entities and lean left. I'll even say they hate conservatives and Channing Dungey lied in that quote. Last Man Standing got cancelled because Tim Allen is a Trump supporter, not because of the content of the show.

Literally no one claimed the show was cancelled because of the content. You didn't remember correctly, it's understandable because it was fo four years ago and no one really cared about it when it happened. I don't think this is one you need to dig your heels in on.

Totally Fair. I just thought it was all of the above and the network didn’t need quirky Obama jokes at the time on their network. Tim Allen was definitely the main reason why. I just thought the content and him went hand and hand, but you’re right.

Last Man Standing might be a good example. I've never seen it, but I remember reading about when it was cancelled and thought it was weird that a show with good ratings would be taken off the air. I just can't help but hear the "this show could never be made today" argument and think that Curb Your Enthusiasm still is on the air and people still love it. Maybe a show couldn't be made on NBC today, but that network television has always been pretty vanilla.

This happens A LOT.

Curb is a good thing to throw in the face of the "x couldn't happen today because of cancel culture" crowd. Larry David literally wore a maga hat on the show. Most people understand that comedy is satirical.

Nobody really cares about takes like this, though. Shows (more accurately, people) get cancelled when then do terrible things in their personal life or start spamming the political facebook posts thread all over their social media.

Our daughter made scones last week and me and my wife used a larry/mocha joe scale to describe their moistness.

It's amazing to me that literally everyone knows there is a large factor of conservative media whose only job is to make people pissed off, without any context at all.

Every single day, multiple times a day, there is a coordinated effort to piss millions of people off and it's incumbent on these people doing literally zero research on what what they're mad about, and I'll be damned if it doesn't work every single time.

Willing to look like a sucker just to stay mad and own the libs, couldn't be me.
