According to ARRL, after some of the producers and such of last man standing had exposure to Ham radio via the set, they decided to take their tech exams and all 8 passed, 2 with perfect scores! I'd like to know how many others have been influenced by the show to get into Ham radio.

My Daughter is studying for her exam.  She was impressed that Mandy considered Ham Radio "an advanced form of Twitter - no typing required". 

Seriously though, that episode bothered my because it showed unlicensed operation and presumably licensed ops not id'ing.  It looked too much like CB.

Last Man Standing didn't get me into Ham Radio . . I just started watching LMS due to Ham Radio . . Though I have only seen the first couple episodes and no radio content yet . . . But I do like the show.
