very war of the sexes humor... it's a hoot.
this is where he works, but when he goes home and is around his wife and 3 daughters he has to try and maintain his manliness in a world dominated by women, and be a good example of what men are supposed to be for his grandson, the little kid his single unwed daughter is raising in her parents (Tim Allen's character's house) as so many Gen X people are doing.
it's on Netflix to stream. ABC was broadcasting it, and just cancelled it. Seems they aren't a fan of Tim Allens adult oriented dad and husband humor. Disney isn't about that sort of humor, they are about princesses and merchandising, and Disney owns ABC.
Despite strong ratings (2nd most watched comedy on ABC according to Variety.com) and a loyal fan base Studio 20th Century Fox Television is looking for a new home for the show.
The show didn’t have a ratings problem – it averaged 6.4 million viewers this season on Friday night, and that should be graded upward on a curve, since the overall Friday audience is typically smaller than other weeknights.
Instead of Last Man Standing, they’ll broadcast the princess drama “Once Upon a Time,” which this year drew... 3.2 million viewers, or half of Allen’s number. It's the story of what might have happened to Snow White, Maleficent, and the other Disney fairy tale characters... Rumpelstiltskin, Peter Pan, etc.
Maybe a network or streaming service more interested in actually having a popular show will show some interest. Hopefully Netflix picks it up to run with The Ranch... another good show.
“Last Man Standing” faces an uphill battle though, after six seasons, costs for the series are significantly higher than those for younger multi-camera comedies typically are. And the buying patterns of broadcast networks this development season showed little appetite for multi-cams among most of the Big Four.
