This story is newsworthy because Tim Allen, a well-known actor, is expressing his opinion on why his show “Last Man Standing” that aired on ABC is not on television anymore.

The lede is good because it reminds the readers that the show is not on-air and why Allen is still talking about this issue.

The audience for this story is fans who are still surprised that the show disappeared unexpectedly, fans of Allen, and conservatives who want shows like “Last Man Standing” to be on television.

The point of view in this story is first and third persons.

The third person point of view is the writer writing to the readers. The first person point of view is Allen’s quote about his opinion on this issue.

The article is short but also straight to the point for readers to quickly read and understand the subject in the story.

The article gives credit to the Hollywood Reporter for using their words about CMT and “Last Man Standing.”

The missing items in this story is an official quote from ABC about why the show is off-air and an official quote from CMT about what made them not want to revive the show.

    Not a huge surprise Fox won’t let this one go. The show ran its course. It made lots of money. But no longer profitable, even if it had an audience. I’m not sure ABC is discussing the subject, but lots of “experts” have weighted in on the economics of TV production. Good discussion.
