    I believe this show has alot of potential. I watched the first 2 episodes and im sure ill be watching the rest of the season. Tim Allen is very funny, his daughters can be annoying at times, and the mom is boring, but Tim Allen makes up for their lack of humour. I dont know why it has such a bad critic rating but its definitely a fun show to watch. Look forward to the rest of the season

    Last Man Standing is everything bad that all the people out there say it is. Still, I gotta claim guilty pleasure here. I watch it with my father-in-law, who, born in the 1940's, is very much part of "man's man" nation where Clint Eastwood and Tom Selleck are gods and the word "tampon" is unlawful to be uttered by male lips. I guess I just like watching him watch. He laughs so hard at theLast Man Standing is everything bad that all the people out there say it is. Still, I gotta claim guilty pleasure here.

    With this show, you can't take things so seriously. Allen's already admitted that it's a nearly identical premise to Home Improvement. Sometimes, for a family comedy, there needs to be a slapstick situation with a dumb punchline. So many shows strive for the all-to-real awkward silence instead of a laugh track outcome, which in most cases is commendable.

It's a harmless sitcom that doesn't expect much from you as a viewer, so don't go into it expecting Modern Family. Expand

    It started out quite good but once it got going the family just got boring. There are a few jokes per episode that are funny but most of them fall flat. It kinda feels like an American version of 'My Family' but worse.

    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.
