TV Watch List: Tuesday, Oct. 11

You tell that webcam what it’s like to be a real man, Tim Allen!

‘Last Man Standing’
COMEDY. “What happened to men? We used to build cities just so we could burn them down,” Tim Allen’s “manly man” — a sporting goods store exec — practically grunts in a rallying cry to the Web. (This is after he discovers the Web, because naturally he’s been too busy fixing tires and fishing to figure out this Interwebs thing). After a 12-year hiatus, Allen is back on television in a sitcom not far removed from “Home Improvement.” (Instead of three sons, he now has three daughters!) And while the jokes are terribly insulting, Allen — no matter what comes out of his mouth, apparently — remains a likeable pro. This simplistic curmudgeon may just have another hit on his hands.
