Tim Allen on ‘Home Improvement’
Before Last Man Standing, there was Home Improvement. The show was a fixture in so many homes each week for a multitude of reasons including the stacked cast and the delightful writing and warmth of the show.
Patricia Richardson, who played Tim’s wife on the show spoke about their partnership on the program. She said to ET, “They called me in and said, ‘There is this guy, he’s a standup, he won an award, he has a special on Showtime. I had never heard of him, I had never heard of that show and I had already seen one show that had failed… that had been done with a standup and a family and everything.”
She did not know Tim Allen before getting paired with him. All she knew was that he was a stand-up and that he had a successful special on Showtime. Not much else was there. However, upon meeting Tim Allen she said she, “immediately loved him.”
You could tell just by watching the show that the partnership worked.
In regards to how the show ended and her wanting to move on from the hit show set in Detroit, “So then they went to Tim, and they said let’s do it with dead Jill. And then Tim was like, I don’t think we can do that. So then he went out and said well, I think it’s time to end Home Improvement.”
And that was that. The show ended after an iconic run for many years with Tim Allen.
