‘Last Man Standing’ Sneak Peek: Jay Leno Returns as Guest Star (Exclusive Photos)

ABC comedy starring Tim Allen returns for Season 6 on Friday

Jay Leno is set to reprise his guest role on ABC’s “Last Man Standing” Season 6, and TheWrap has the first photos of his appearance.

The former host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show” will appear on the September 30 episode, titled “Gameday Forecast: Showers,” as Joe, a mechanic and car aficionado.

In the episode, a Jack and Jill wedding shower for Mandy and Kyle is announced, and Mike (Tim Allen) is disappointed to learn it’s on the same day as the big Broncos-Chargers game. In an effort to catch the game with Joe (Jay Leno) and the guys, Mike convinces the couple to hold separate showers.

The episode was written by Kevin Abbott, and directed by Victor Gonzalez.

“Last Man Standing,” starring Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, the straight-talking champion of common sense in a politically correct world, returns for Season 6 on ABC on Friday, with an episode titled “Papa Bear.”

Molly Ephraim, Kaitlyn Dever, Amanda Fuller, Jordan Masterson, Christoph Sanders, Flynn Morrison, Jonathan Adams and Hector Elizondo also star.
