For eight seasons, between 1991 and 1999 on ABC, the classic sitcom Home Improvement brought the Taylor brood — an all-American family if ever there was one — into America’s living rooms. The series starred Tim Allen as Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, the star of show-within-a-show Tool Time, a (wait for it) home improvement series which he hosted with his deadpan sidekick Al Borland (Richard Karn), who often served as the straight man to Tim’s antics. Mostly, though, the real show focused on Tim’s home life with his loving wife Jill (Patricia Richardson) and their three sons, Brad (Zachery Ty Bryan), Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas), and Mark (Taran Noah Smith), who dealt with the bumps in life’s road with a little help from
Last Man Standing‘s final season premiere spent little time quarantined with the Baxters before it jumped ahead to a post-COVID world, where Mike and Vanessa had not one, but two new grandchildren: Mandy and Kyle’s firstborn Sarah (played by newcomer Sophia McKinlay), and Kristin and Ryan’s second child, a daughter named Evelyn.
The latter was mentioned but not seen during Sunday’s episode, which saw the long-running Tim Allen comedy jump ahead to the year 2023 to avoid stories set during the pandemic. As showrunner Kevin Abbott previously told TVLine, “People are depressed enough without having to look for us to be depressed,” hence the decision to sidestep COVID-19. “[The time jump] allowed us to tell stories from a positive point of view while addressing the impact [the pandemic has had] on our characters,” which viewers will see more of in subsequent episodes.

The 67-year-old actor (who plays Mike Baxter) told Fox News that he was proud the show lasted for so long on FOX but is also understandably upset to be saying goodbye to another character.
He admitted that going to set every day was “horrible” knowing it was one day closer to the final day of production.
“I thought it would be a good idea,” Allen revealed. “It was a terrible idea!”
“I feel like because we show up to work going ahhhhh (“crying”) I can’t…” joked co-star and onscreen wife Nancy Travis.
She added that fans can look forward to more of the same from the
George To The Rescue Assists Long Island Family, Nonprofit Staff, and Healthcare Heroes In New Season
Three groups of Long Islanders got surprise renovations from benevolent home improvement contractors who donated their time, materials, and efforts in the latest season of NBC’s reality show George to the Rescue.
In season 11, which debuted last month, host George Oliphant’s transformations include a Merrick family’s bedroom and bathroom, the home office of a Floral Park-based nonprofit’s telecommuting program director, and Northwell Health’s North Shore University Hospital staff break room known as the Lavender Lounge in Manhasset.
“This was the most challenging and the most meaningful George to the Rescue season to date,“ said Marni Sabia, vice president of Lifestyle Production for LX.TV, which produces the show. “Our projects were completed during the COVID pandemic and required a different approach, including social distancing, the use of PPE and other steps to ensure
Remaining hopeful. Season 8 of Last Man Standing was forced to wrap before filming its finale, forcing the April 30 penultimate episode to serve as the final episode of the season. However, star Tim Allen is hopeful that the show will be renewed for a ninth season — and that the original finale can serve as the premiere.
“I think it would be outstanding as a premiere,” the comedian, 66, told Us Weekly exclusively. “You’d save it, we could do some pieces over the summer.”
Last Man Standing aired on ABC for six seasons before getting canceled. Fox then picked it up for seasons 7 and 8 — and Allen says they’ve been talking about how season 9 would look.
