‘Last Man Standing’ canceled despite high ratings

Tim Allen’s hit sitcom “Last Man Standing” has seen its final days.

ABC announced it has canceled Allen’s show after six seasons.

“This was a scheduling decision,” wrote Jori Arancio, senior vice president of ABC Entertainment and ABC Studios, in an email sent to Fox News on Friday.

According to Deadline, ABC and its production partner for the show 20th Century Fox TV typically negotiate licensing fees prior to each season, however the network simply decided to pull the plug.

A rep for 20th Century Fox TV told us cancellation decisions are made by ABC.

The cancellation came as a shock for many fans considering the show’s high ratings. Deadline reports the sitcom was the network’s second-highest comedy this season and averaged 8.1 million viewers, just behind “Modern Family,” which averaged 8.7 million viewers this season and was recently renewed for two more seasons. It was also ABC’s third highest watched scripted series behind “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Modern Family.”

So why was the show killed?
