    Love this show! It reminds me of the sitcoms I grew up with in the 90's!!! Tim Allen is funny as usual!

    this is the best thing to happen to tv since 1992. Thats right.. when home improvement started. I miss home improvement and it was a great show with a great cast. I love this show, but small issue is nancy travis, she is not a good mother figure for this. And it makes a feel weird seing tim with nancy on here and not jill. It makes me feel he left her since 1999 and stuff and not seing wilson over the fence and tool time. I miss home improvement. Expand

    A pretty good show with a lot of potential the writing is excellent, the acting is admittedly sub-par and Tim Allens vlogs are hilarious as well as offers powerful insight into the plight of the modern day man. Finally a show that 21st century namby pambys can learn from. In this day and age of neurotic shy love-struck male leads such as "Raising Hope" "Wilfred" and even "Glee" (on a whole new level of femininity) its good for kids to see how a real man is supposed to look.

    While it returns Allen to a Mr. Fix-it style of parenting and some broad he-man comedy, the show offers fewer grunts and more shrieking female voices.

    Very probably the worst sitcom on network television, Last Man Standing makes Whitney Cummings look like Noël Coward.

    It's strange that the same network that airs these two stellar comedies [Modern Family & The Middle] would chose to regress and put this dreck on the air.
