When Tim Allen’s new sitcom ‘Last Man Standing’ first came to ABC, some viewers were skeptical as they quickly realized that the format was very similar to that of ‘Home Improvement’ except instead of three boys, they had three girls, but the show has proven that the format is a winner as viewers have turned into fans.
The show is already fairly female heavy as far as casting, but they decided to bring in a female guest star for Tuesday’s upcoming episode, ‘Tree of Strife.’ ‘Last Man Standing’ has snagged reality star Kim Kardashian to appear on the show and she while she will not be playing a character on the show, she will be playing a role she knows quite well – herself.
In the episode Mandy Baxter (played by Molly Ephraim) has the opportunity to meet her biggest idol (Kardashian) at a local book signing. When Mandy is finally face to face with Kim she embarrasses herself by saying “Fandy, I’m your biggest man!” and then proceeds to try to hug Kim while destroying stacks of her books.
The show is geared towards a bit of an older audience and airs up against ‘Glee’, but with Kim’s appearance on the show they may be able to entice some younger viewers to give it a chance.
Kardashian’s episode of ‘Last Man Standing’ will air on Tuesday, February 7 at 8pm. Will you be tuning in? Check out the sneak peek of Kim’s scene in the clip below and let us know what you think.
