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.

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

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

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

Oct 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.

Oct 11, 2011 | Full Review…

It's a harmless, run-of-the-mill family sitcom, but they've made sitcoms in the past that I've laughed at. If you aren't going to have funny jokes, then stop filling in the empty space with huge character inconsistencies and logical flaws.

Last Man Standing is never going to be as courageous as it thinks it is.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

If Allen was a bumbling father to three sons before, he is even more incompetent with three daughters, and it's not funny. It's child abuse-and viewer abuse.

May 11, 2018 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

Last Man Standing's boneheaded sense of gender politics would be less annoying if the jokes were funnier.
