Centered around the accident-prone host of a Detroit, Michigan television program, "Home Improvement" follows Tim Taylor, who is raising a family alongside his wife, Jill. Tim and Jill have three children: the oldest, Brad, middle child Randy, and the youngest, Mark. Their neighbor, Wilson, is the brilliant go-to guy who often helps solve all manner of problems for Tim and Jill. Tim has two co-stars on the home improvement show "Tool Time": the mild-mannered Al Borland, Tim's best friend, and Tool Time Girl Heidi.

During its eight season run, "Home Improvement" was nominated for multiple Golden Globe Awards and Emmy Awards, and won the People's Choice Award for Favorite Comedy Series three times and Favorite Male Television Performer a remarkable seven times. .
