Tim Allen is a family man at home and on television. For eight seasons, he played father and husband Tim Taylor on Home Improvement. Now, his show Last Man Standing is on its eighth season as well. He plays a husband and father once more. The difference? On Home Improvement, he had sons and on Last Man Standing he has daughters.
Tim has admitted that his role in Last Man Standing does remind him of his real life. He has two daughters, so of course, he probably pulls experience from his own life to play Mike Baxter. His real-life daughters are 31 and 11.

He once said, “We had an episode … where we had to change Eve’s [Kaitlyn Dever] room and it reminded me of real life. You know, your kid’s not coming back. They’ll visit, they’re not going anywhere, but they’re not coming back to the bedroom they grew up in. It was really a hard one for me to do based on my oldest daughter, when she left.”
The Last Man Standing season finale is on tonight, April 30, 2020, at 8 p.m. ET on FOX. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the cast was not able to film the true finale. Tim previously revealed that there was a big cliffhanger in that episode. Hopefully, they will be able to film it sometime in the future.
