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.

Richard Karn, who previously co-starred with Tim Allen on Home Improvement as Al Borland, plays Bill McKendree who tells Mike Baxter (Tim Allen) to "say 'hi' to your wife and three sons", which Mike replies "Bill, I have three daughters." Bill responds "Really? God, I seem to remember it was three boys." This is a nod to Tim Allen's character, Tim "The Toolman" Taylor on Home Improvement. See more
