Fall TV Review: Last Man Standing

Tim Allen's new comedy is so riduculously embarassing. My how far the once-mighty have fallen. His old-school comedy shtick doesnt work in 2011 the way it did when HOME IMPROVEMENT ruled the tube throughout the nineties. At least back then the writing was clever. Now Tim just comes across as a boor to his kids. Each set-up to his jokey wisdom is groan-inducing. There is not a bit of heart either to his curmudgeon-like character, and he is also woefully homophobic (a further step backward). I can't see this show surviving the season, not when ABC has such a rich Wednesday night with The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family and Happy Endings (With Cougar Town and Don't Trust the Bitch in Apt 23 on deck).
