Did Starz Cancel ‘Boss’ Because Kelsey Grammer is a Republican?

*Kelsey Grammer seems to believe that his political leanings are to blame — not just for the cancellation of his Starz series “Boss,” but also for his Emmy snub earlier this year after earning a Golden Globe for the role.
“It’s hard to figure,” Grammer told Jay Leno. “It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it’s possible, I mean, I am a, I’m a declared out of the closet Republican in Hollywood.”
He added: “Do I believe it’s possible that some young person, young voting actor, or even older voting member for the Emmys, would sit there and go, ‘Yeah, that’s a great performance, but oooooh, I just hate everything he stands for?’” He then answered sarcastically: “I don’t believe that’s possible.”
As previously reported, the network announced Tuesday that low ratings are the reason behind the show’s demise after two seasons The Lionsgate drama’s sophomore year averaged 937,000 viewers, down from its first-year average of 1.1 million.
During season 2 interviews in July, Grammer had another idea of why his performance of Mayor Tom Kane didn’t earn an Emmy – a prize that went to “Homeland’s” Damien Lewis.
“I didn’t get a SAG nomination, so I figured a lot of the same people were probably voting for the Emmy, and to me, I kind of thought I wouldn’t get one, honestly, because it didn’t happen the first time [in season 1],” he said. “Why would it happen next [season]? For some reason, my peers don’t seem to think this is worth recognizing.”

Has anyone here watched both Boss and Homeland? I think Damien Lewis more than deserved it, on top of acting his ass off, he's doing it with an American accent, perfectly too.
