    Finally, a really funny show! This is one that our whole family can watch! I think this is the best comedy on TV.

  2. Kellie says

    You should renew Last Man standing for next year. It is one of my very favorite shows and one of the few I actually watch.

  3. Chris says

    Greg above said it best, much of TV and the stuff passed off as comedy is a complete waste of time! My wife considers it to be an absolutely refreshing comedy! Last Man Standing is well written and truly is the funniest comedy on televesion! My wife and I looked forward to it every week. We hope that this show returns for those of us that appreciate a tasteful, hilarious and well acted comedy. We join those above who really enjoy this show and hope that this show will continue for years to come. Great job to Tim, the cast and the entire team that is a part of this show! Well Done!!

    I love this show. Tim Allen always makes me laugh out loud. I missed him being on TV..I am thrilled he is back. Nancy Travis plays a perfect wife for him. It is refreshing to see a show where the wife “respects” her husband and he respects and loves her.
    It is so nice to see a “family” show that is not just about tearing each other down. God bless you all!

    Today’s TV is such a wasteland of reality shows and spinoffs. This show is an oasis that makes my family laugh and learn. This is the one show we don’t miss. Thank you Tim Allen, Nancy Travis and ladies.
