Trump Supporters Celebrate The Return Of ‘Last Man Standing’

The upcoming return of Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” had conservatives and Trump supporters excited at the prospect of seeing one of their own, the iconic character Mike Baxter, back on the small screen. Leading the pack, of course, was Allen himself, who is clearly chomping at the bit to get back to work. Others, including actor James Wood, former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka, and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, expressed their delight via Twitter.

Last Man Standing didn't have a ratings problem — it averaged 6.4 million viewers this season, and that should be graded upward on a curve, since the show aired on Friday and the overall Friday audience is typically smaller than other weeknights. Looking at all this, you can see why Tim Allen is stunned ... and why it's easy to think that a pro-Trump TV star is suddenly out of fashion largely for reasons that have nothing to do with ratings or business.
