The show ended after eight seasons in 1999.The two declined the offer and the series came to an end as a result. 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. Patricia Richardson, who once starred as beloved matriarch Jill Taylor in 'Home Improvement, 'Home Improvement, 'said she doesn't regret leaving the hit series behind in a new interview. Home improvements were made from 1991 to 1999, however, after eight seasons Richardson was ready to leave the show.
They say money can't buy happiness and it certainly can't buy Home Improvement co-stars Tim Allen and Patricia Richardson. Of course, he also made a few films after Home Improvement, but it never reached the level of success that he could easily have had. 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 series finale. But that wouldn't be very respectful of Patricia Richardson's Jill Taylor, or the characters' children, played by Zachery Ty Bryan, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Taran Noah Smith, and it wouldn't give fans the family dynamic that made Home Improvement work so well.
Patricia Richardson captured the hearts of America as Tim Allen's wife, Jill Taylor, on Home Improvement. Fortunately, the audience was able to witness a truly crazy crossing when Allen did a double task in bringing Tim Taylor from Home Improvement to the Last Man Standing universe. If you're not a 90s kid, it's hard to describe how big the home improvement phenomenon was at its height. While Last Man Standing has just finished, he will continue to be best known for his role as Tim 'The Tool Man' Taylor on Home Improvement.
I liked how they worked in the commercial transition to home improvement style, where the current scene (this case Baxter's house) deconstructs and collapses. Unfortunately, Home Improvement is not currently available anywhere for subscription streaming, although fans can purchase episodes and seasons through Amazon or other similar platforms. Of course, this was after Jonathan Taylor Thomas decided to leave Home Improvement for the last season and he didn't even bother to return for the series finale. Viewers were definitely thrilled to see the different ways Last Man Standing referred to Home Improvement, as everything was kind and respectful.
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.
