Home Improvement stars Tim Allen and Richard Karn land new show called Assembly Required

History Channel has announced that Home Improvement stars Tim Allen (Tim ‘the Tool Man’ Taylor) and Richard Karn (Al Borland) are set to reunite for a new show called Assembly Required.

Tim Allen added: “Let’s face it — we’re living in a throwaway society. We buy, break, replace … rinse and repeat. Whatever happened to repair and rebuild?

The Property Brothers Show Off Their Grandest Kitchen Upgrades

“Property Brothers” stars Drew and Jonathan Scott are at it again! On this season of “Brother vs. Brother,” they’re competing to see who can renovate the better home in Los Angeles. And in the latest episode, they’re facing off over (arguably) the most important part of the house: the kitchen.

In the episode “A Tale of Two Kitchens,” a lot is on the line. Drew hasn’t won a single kitchen challenge in all six seasons of “Brother vs. Brother,” so he’s determined to get lucky with No. 7.

However, his plans may be dashed since Jonathan has plans for some show-stopping features, including a custom barrel ceiling and double kitchen islands.

It’s up to judges Maureen McCormick and Dan Vickery from the HGTV show “Frozen in Time” to decide which brother’s kitchen and dining space is better—and they have a tough decision to make.
