"Last Man Standing" on ABC is a comedy series starring Tim Allen as traditional manly man "Mike Baxter," who continues to be surrounded by forces seeking to complicate and feminize his world — although some of that energy may not always come from women.

Mike is often the odd man out in a home dominated by his loving wife and three daughters. He finds himself more frequently at odds with wife Vanessa, a geologist working for an oil company. Each has a strong point of view on a variety of issues ranging from the environment, holiday chores and whom to stay friends with after a divorce to grand-parenting their 5-year-old grandson, Boyd — possibly Mike's only ally.

In Season 2, daughter Kristin, a 23 year old living at home and single mom to Boyd, will be more of a force to reckon with for Mike; the two disagree about most aspects of politics, and especially about child-rearing. Outspoken Mandy, 18, continues as family diva and teenage drama queen, stirring up trouble by taking a romantic interest in Kyle, sister Kristin's former boyfriend. And Eve, 14, struggling to shake off the role of being a tomboy and daddy's favorite, will do some adolescent acting out of her own.

Compared to home, Mike might be more in charge at his job at The Outdoor Man, an iconic outdoor sporting goods store where he is marketing director. He works alongside his long-time boss and friend, Ed — who has reconciled with one of his ex-wives — and the somewhat sensitive Kyle, who considers Mike his mentor. When Ed put Mike in charge of The Outdoor Man's webpage, Mike discovered that the Internet provided him just the outlet he needed ... a platform that gives him a voice to appeal to those who agree that manliness is under assault, and a pulpit for his opinions about feeling like the last real man in a feminized world. It was men who built civilizations, invented the locomotive and created ESPN, after all, and Mike Baxter is determined to do what he must to reclaim his manly place in his home and at his job.

The cast includes Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, Nancy Travis as Vanessa Baxter, Molly Ephraim as Mandy Baxter, Kaitlyn Dever as Eve Baxter, Amanda Fuller as Kristin Baxter, Christoph Sanders as Kyle Anderson, Flynn Morrison as Boyd Baxter and Hector Elizondo as Ed Alzate.

"Last Man Standing," created by Jack Burditt and executive-produced by Tim Doyle, Tim Allen, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, Shawn Levy, Richard Baker, Rick Messina, Kevin Abbott and Kevin Hench, is from Twentieth Century Fox Television.

Im confused. I missed the opening 20 minutes. where does the little boy come from? If he has 3 daughters only then the baby must be a grandson, who's the mama, and daddy? Did I see there was 2 little boys. a scene with a boy about 2, and another with a boy about 4 where do they fity in. I like the show. Tim Allen, can make any show funny. We need more funny in this world to bring down the crazy world. Thanks for the laughs.

I love anything Tim does, but I had a very difficult time hearing what they were saying last night. They speak WAY TOO fast and it sounded mumbled to me (no, I don't have hearing problems). Any chance of slowing down a bit??

Got spoilers? What did you think of the last show?
