Last Man Standing

8 p.m. ET on FOX

Vanessa (Nancy Travis) is determined to keep Mike (Tim Allen) from meddling in Ed and Bonnie’s (Hector Elizondo, guest star Susan Sullivan) relationship when the older couple begins spending more time together, but of course he just can’t help himself in the new episode “Otherwise Engaged.” Elsewhere, Mandy and Kyle (Molly McCook, Christoph Sanders) eavesdrop on Kristin and Ryan through their newly installed home security system. Jordan Masterson also stars.



8:30 p.m. ET on ABC

In a new episode, JJ (Micah Fowler) has a hard time using his new social security benefits strictly to buy what he considers to be boring stuff, while Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough) stumbles across a secret that upsets the balance in Jimmy and Maya’s (John Ross Bowie, Minnie Driver) relationship. Ray’s (Mason Cook) odds of success in a Quiz Bowl are compromised by a distracting run-in with an old flame. Jonathan Slavin and Sedona James guest star; Kyla Kenedy also stars.
