About Last Man Standing (2011)

Mike Baxter is the marketing director for an iconic outdoor sporting goods store “Outdoor Man”. He loves to have adventures while he’s traveling for work and, of course, he drives a pick-up truck and Mike loves to share all his opinions as the Outdoor Man on the internet. While Mike is king of the hill at work, he’s the odd man out in a home that is dominated by women — namely his wife, Vanessa, and their three daughters, Mandy, Eve and Kristin. After being a stay-at-home mom for years, Vanessa recently returned to the workplace. As a result of Vanessa’s increased work load Mike is pulled into more hands-on parenting than ever before.
