Besides outstanding acting, the show has fast-paced, witty dialogue and does cover the gamut from conservative father to his foil-a very liberal son-in-law-and makes both worthy of respect. It also deals with older people’s (Mike’s business partner), women’s and millenials’ issues. It has myriad loyal viewers. What more does ABC want? I also agree that saying you are not doing comedy on Friday nights doesn’t negate putting it on another night. Excuse doesn’t fly. I hope that this decision is reversed. I record this and look forward to coming home from a late night out and just chilling with the humor and interesting topics it contains.
