Ladies Man is an American television sitcom series created by Chris Thompson, starring Alfred Molina as Jimmy Stiles, a husband, father, son, ex-husband and son-in-law who lives with a number of women under one roof. The show was first broadcast on September 20, 1999, and lasted for two seasons on CBS until June 27, 2001.
