Tim Allen's character on 'Last Man Standing' won't be talking about Trump

Last Man Standing season 7: Big news coming for Tim Allen series; when?

Meanwhile, the Last Man Standing crew addressed comparisons drawn by fans and foes alike between their show and Roseanne.

When asked if ABC was correct to fire Barr over the controversial remark, Allen replied, "They had to do what they had to do and it's their decision", adding he was left "heartbroken" after the network canceled his sitcom Last Man Standing.

But Mike Baxter probably isn't a vocal defender of President Donald Trump, Allen told TV critics Thursday.

Allen, who is a conservative Trump supporter, discussed the climate for comedians in the current hyper-partisan political era.

What did Allen say about Barr's firing?

In a surprising turn of events, the writers of Last Man Standing were actually preparing for Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 election. "Clearly he's a character with a conservative viewpoint", Newman said. But the revived "Roseanne" was an "issue-of-the-week" comedy, and "we don't do issues of the week. We consider ourselves a family show with a traditional character in the center of it".

In May, Barr went on the Twitter offensive about Valerie Jarrett, a former Obama aide. In a statement to reporters past year, entertainment president Channing Dungey said the show was pulled from the Friday night lineup because of "business and scheduling reasons", explaining that the company decided not to air comedies on Fridays.

While recasting is still underway for the roles of Mandy (Molly Ephraim) and Boyd (Flynn Morrison), Eve (Kaitlyn Dever) will be absent for much of the season because she joined the Air Force Academy.

The "Last Man Standing" star described her as a longtime pal from their days on the live comedy circuit, but stopped short of defending Barr, whose "Roseanne" reboot was canceled after she tweeted a racist joke.

"I've said this a of couple times". "I think it was a financial decision on ABC's part". And a fist pump, ouch, for [Fox Television Group CEOs] Dana Walden and Gary Newman at Fox for not only listening to the fans, but for making the bold move to bring Last Man Standing back.

When further pressed about whether or not ABC made the right call by terminating Barr after her comments, Allen added, "They had to do what they had to do, and that's their decision".

'(Last Man Standing) was a challenging one for me because it was a steady performer in the ratings, ' Dungey said.
