The ABC comedy, "Last Man Standing," starring Tim Allen as an outdoor store manager with a ham station in his office and his basement, was cancelled by the network at the end of its sixth season. According to "TV By the Numbers," the program maintained consistently good ratings and no explanation was offered by ABC for its decision. Executive Producer John Amodeo, NN6JA, says the program will continue to air in syndication, but it is unlikely that there will be any new episodes shot.

In addition, the ARRL Letter reports that "Frequency," the TV spinoff of the 2000 movie of the same name, was cancelled by the CW Network after its first season.
