Storyline

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 ABC Publicity

Trivia

Tim Allen's character, Mike Baxter, is an amateur (HAM) radio operator, with a call-sign of KA0XTT. Last Man Standing (2011)'s producer, John Amodeo, is an actual ham radio operator, and the ham station used by Mike Baxter is an actual working station. Mike's call-sign is a joke reference to Tim Allen's former Home Improvement (1991) character Tim Taylor (ex Tim Taylor = XTT). See more »

Goofs

Outdoor Man's building is the front of a Bass Pro Shop. Based on the roof line the chain's store in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, the closest to the sound stage lot in Studio City. The signs are altered with CGI. The Rocky Mountains are superimposed behind the store to place it in Denver. Neither the Denver, nor Colorado Springs Bass Pro Shop stores have the same foliage or roof line as the shot used in the show. See more »

Can't Miss With Héctor Elizondo and Tim Allen!
18 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

I missed the premiere. I don't watch ABC that much and must have missed the promo. I came across it on Hulu and was tickled to see Tim Allen back in a family sitcom. I watched both episodes and have put it on my watch/DVR list. I really enjoyed the show. I realize that the first couple of episodes of any new production are spent trying to set the stage and help us get to know the characters. I look forward to seeing these beautiful girls challenge their parents as they deal with life experiences. Seeing Tim Allen in the role of granddad reminds me of my own father. So sweet!

It is a bonus to have Héctor Elizondo (Chicago Hope, Monk) and Christoph Sanders (Talledega Nights, Ghost Whisperer) in the cast! While the family is female dominated, they add the macho balance to she show. It is so nice to have a good, family, multi-generational comedy to watch again!
