Hallmark Channel Acquires Last Man Standing for 2016; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of May 18, 2015)

Last Man Standing

Hallmark Channel has announced the acquisition of the off-network sitcom Last Man Standing. The series will begin to air as part of the network's successful sitcom programming lineup beginning January 2016. Last Man Standing, starring Tim Allen (Home Improvement) as the manly patriarch of a family dominated by women, is the latest addition to Hallmark Channel's highly-rated hit sitcom offerings, which include viewer favorites The Middle and Home Improvement, also starring Allen. In Home Improvement star Tim Allen's hilarious comeback to comedy television, Last Man Standing, also starring Nancy Travis and Hector Elizondo, anchors the popular Friday night lineup on ABC. The series, entering its fifth season this fall on ABC, revolves around Mike Baxter (Allen), an outdoor sporting goods exec whose conservative ideas are constantly challenged in a world ruled by women - his wife and three daughters. As Mike tries to maintain his macho manliness while surrounded by the strong-willed women he loves, he finds his traditional values and testosterone-fueled attitude will always single him out. With the perfect blend of wit, hilarious humor and warmhearted family moments, Last Man Standing gives a charmingly funny spin on the plight of an everyday American dad.
