Series cast summary:


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, 20- year-old Kristin, 17-year-old Mandy and 13-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 ABC Publicity

When the front of the house is shown in an actual scene the front door is in a deep alcove with a window to the left of the door. When the exterior of the house is shown from the street (typically between scenes) the front door is almost flush with the front of the house and no window to the left. See more »

How to Ruin a Show
12 November 2012 | by (Chicago, United States) – See all my reviews

I have been a fan of Tim Allen for years. I could not wait to see his new show last year and I was not let down. The cast worked well together and my only complaint was there was not more of the grandchild. Again I could not wait for this season to start. I enjoy a good sitcom to just get away from all that is going on. I was surprised to find that a large majority of the cast was changed and not for the better. The show changed the oldest daughter and to me she was the glue of the show, then they aged the grandson and brought in an actor to play his dad that is very annoying. The Season 2 first show was on the election, this is a good way to turn off half the population. Do the writers not live in this country? I was so upset in the quality of the show and how poorly the cast worked together I almost turned it off. I decided to give it one more episode. Just watched Season 2 Episode 2, it was just as bad, the show just lost one more viewer. We deleted the show from our DVR. This is a great example of how you can ruin what was a very good show.
