She said Allen refused to do a show without her and turned down a release to continue Home Improvements with the character of Jill being killed. As a result, the series ended in 1999.After all, it's definitely been long enough to feel nostalgic for sure. The last episode aired 16 years ago, and although things ended very well with the end of Tool Time and the family moved to Indiana for Jill's new job offer, uprooting her house in the process. But I wouldn't mind seeing where the Taylors are today, especially if that means watching mini Al running around in flannel to match his father's signature outfit.
Plus, there's a chance that my childhood crush on JTT has never ended, and I'm not going to miss the opportunity to watch it on my TV again. The comedy about a family man who hosted his own home improvement program called Tool Time became one of the most watched series of the 90s. Home Improvement episodes did not air in order of production code number or original air date. In Germany and Austria, Home Improvement has been shown in dubbing under the title Hör mal, wer da hämmert (Listen who is hammering).
During its run, Home Improvement always finished in the top 10 most-watched programs, and the series finale was watched by an estimated 35 million people in the United States with a rating of 21.2 and a 34% share, meaning that a third of all televisions turned to ABC to watch the end of the series. The show presented by Tim Taylor in the Home Improvement shooting script was still called Hammer Time when the first pilot with Frances Fisher was filmed in April 1991.The theme song Tool Time, an instrumental rock melody from the early 60s dominated by the saxophone, was sometimes used as the closing theme of Home Improvement, especially when behind the credits were the scenes of errors that occurred during the recording of a segment of Tool Time. Beginning with Season 2, Home Improvement began each episode with a cold opening, which features the series' logo during the teaser. Home Improvement is an American television sitcom starring Tim Allen that aired on ABC from September 17, 1991 to May 25, 1999, with a total of 204 half-hour episodes spanning eight seasons.
The 25-disc collection includes all 204 episodes of the series, as well as all the special features contained in the previously released seasonal sets; it comes in a special collectible package, a home improvement toolbox with a Binford All-In-One Tool measuring tape. They say money can't buy happiness and it certainly can't buy Home Improvement co-stars Tim Allen and Patricia Richardson. Home Improvement ran from 1991 to 1999, however, after eight seasons Richardson was ready to leave the show. Each episode includes the Binford-sponsored home improvement program, called Tool Time, a program within a program.
By the time Season 8 of Home Improvement was wrapping up production, ABC and the show's production team wanted to bring everyone back for another season. By the time ABC committed to the project in early 1991, Allen and his team had already changed the title to Home Improvement. If you're not a 90s kid, it's hard to describe how big the home improvement phenomenon was at its height.
