Tv Season Info

Mike Baxter (Tim Allen), a macho marketing executive at a sporting-goods store, decides to spend less time travelling for work and more time at home with his wife (Nancy Travis) and three daughters in the first series of this sitcom. He becomes more involved in his daughters' lives, and even tries to help eldest daughter, Kristin (Alexandra Krosney), with her young son, but he winds up getting the tyke kicked out of day care. Some of his other missteps include encouraging teenage Mandy (Molly Ephraim) to get a job delivering pizzas at night, which his wife worries is unsafe; and giving tomboy Eve (Kaitlyn Dever) some football advice, which leads to her injuring a boy on whom she has a crush.

Sometime it weakly titters while other times approaching a collective guffaw.

Very probably the worst sitcom on network television.

Dreadful. Or to use a more manly phrase, aaarrgggh, awful.

Top Critic

The running gag of Last Man Standing has Allen playing the rooster in a henhouse, asserting male supremacy at every turn.

October 11, 2011 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

There's reliable humor in the formula but it's all too tedious.

October 11, 2011 | Full Review…

As borderline odious and stale as some of the jokes are in the pilot, Last Man Standing could be a fixer-upper.
