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 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.Each episode includes the Binford-sponsored home improvement program, called Tool Time, a program within a program. In Germany and Austria, Home Improvement has been shown in dubbing under the title Hör mal, wer da hämmert (Listen who is hammering). This popular phrase would not be uttered after the seventh season of Home Improvement, until Tim's last line in the series finale, which are the last two words spoken.
The theme music of 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. It's been hinted that a Home Improvement meeting is never going to happen, but in the event that it does, I've prepared some questions that definitely need answers. In fact, now that they're getting back together at Last Man Standing, I think it's definitely time for a real Home Improvement meeting. The incredibly popular cable home improvement program ventures off set to watch more location episodes (some with the recently introduced Tool Time Van) and keeps famous guest stars to a minimum.
The catalyst for the renaming of the series was to represent the problem solving aspect within family and family life, as well as the use of mechanics and tools. Home Improvement episodes did not air in order of production code number or original air date. Beginning with Season 2, Home Improvement began each episode with a cold opening, which features the series' logo during the teaser. 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.
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. If you're not a 90s kid, it's hard to describe how big the home improvement phenomenon was at its height. 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.
