    I’m sick and tired of Tim Allen’s or his writer’s criticisms of political views different from his, which are right wing and racist.

    Last man standing is a funny show, and more shows need to include family values, but the little Tea Party political references make it one I turn off.

    Last Man Standing is in the top 5% of our preference. They manage to keep their need for “adult” content to a comfortable level. We absolutely love the writing and the delivery, and all the good looking people involved in intelligent situations. Ask what the one show might surpass this – well, really , none!

    This is one of the only sitcoms I will watch. It is funny, well written and has good family values. I would say it is one of my favorite shows, one my husband and I actually like to watch together.

    Last Man Standing is the best sit com I have ever seen. I love it!! It is funny and still teaches family values. It is the only show that is not show that teaches accepting drug and sex, or that it is acceptable to have a dishonest life style. If Last Man Standing is cancelled it think it is time to shut off the t.v. – This is the only show I believe my whole family can watch and enjoy. It also teaches a great history lesson each week. Good for you !
    Keep up the good Work – -OH October 25th was the best one yet !! Thanks for mentioning the bible and not making fun of it.
    Thanks Garner household

    I’m so happy to see a show like this on the air in this decade. I’m sick of American values going down the trash. This show brings them back and has educated discussions on controversial topics. I hope the liberals and most of media get their heads out of their bums and pay attention. Cheers to ABC.
