Mike Baxter is the marketing director for an iconic outdoor sporting goods store. He loves to have adventures while he's traveling for work and, of course, he drives a pick-up truck. While Mike is king of the hill at work, he's the odd man out in a home that is dominated by women -- namely his wife, Vanessa, and their three daughters, 22- year-old Kristin, 17-year-old Mandy and 14-year-old Eve. After being a stay-at-home mom for years, Vanessa recently returned to the workplace and was quickly promoted (much to the dismay of her primarily male co-workers). As a result of Vanessa's increased work load, Mike is pulled into more hands-on parenting than ever before. Written by

In one episode, Patrica Richardson shows up as Mike's neighbour. She mentions how her husband tends to "fix" or "upgrade" things, such as the waffle iron. This is in reference to another show Tim Allen was on, Home Improvement (1991), where he would anger his wife (also played by Patricia Richardson) by "fixing) and "upgrading" things around the house.
