Storyline and cast
Last Man Standing is an American sitcom created by Jack Burditt and executive produced, and starring Tim Allen. The series debuted on ABC on October 11, 2011 and has had a successful five season run.
In his second sitcom for ABC, Tim Allen portrays Mike Baxter, a senior executive and director of marketing for a chain of outdoor stores in Colorado. He is literally the last man standing in a household full of women, including his wife, three daughters and a granddaughter. Last Man Standing also stars Nancy Travis as Vanessa Baxter, Mike’s wife who works as a geologist in the energy industry.
Season 5 of Last Man Standing premiered on September 25, 2015 guest starred Jay Leno as a car aficionado who sells Vanessa a car as a gift for her husband. Interestingly, this episode marks a reunion between Leno’s guest appearance on Tim Allen’s previous sitcom “Home Improvement” back in 1995, in which he played an auto mechanic.
Ratings for the series have been on par with previous seasons, averaging about 6.4 million viewers per episode. But like many major broadcast scripted series, Last Man Standing season 6 is not a guarantee. There are still many episodes to be aired and ABC will likely wait to see how the show performs before making any announcements.
Season 5 recap
A 22-part fifth installment of the ABC network’s hit Friday night comedy series Last Man Standing bowed out in the US on April 22, 2016 and although the network is yet to make a decision on the show’s future, the facts are clearly indicating a very likely renewal. In its most recent cycle, the sitcom has averaged 6.7 million viewers per episode, which is on par with season four. With a handful of awards and nominations, the show has most recently won the 2015 ASCAP Film and Television Music Award as Top Television Series. Considering the fact that most ABC’s Friday comedies like The Neighbors or Cristela have been cut due to low ratings, Tim Allen sitcom can be easily considered a success.
