So it’s a fictional show on a sitcom but the concept of Tool Time, which was slightly modified from This Old House, was always entertaining as Tim fumbled his way through home improvement projects with his “Norm” not far to save the day. The addition of Pam Anderson as the Tool Time girl wasn’t original but boosted ratings for Tool Time and Home Improvement.
Could a show like this really make it on the air today. Some of the current offerings on HGTV and the DIY Network don’t seem very far off the mark as they bring in attractive designers, contractors, hosts and tear down and build up houses.
What’s your favorite home improvement show and are there any new ones you’re looking forward to this fall?
