Last Man Standing and Home Improvement Crossover Leaves Fans Desperate for a Reboot

Last Man Standing viewers saw double last night as Tim Allen’s beloved Home Improvement character, Tim ‘The Tool Man’ Taylor, made an appearance on the Fox sitcom. The crossover event featured more than a few nods to Home Improvement, including discussions about neighbor Wilson Wilson, Jr., the Taylor family, and even a potential reboot. Say what?!

Thursday’s episode of Last Man Standing (Season 9, Episode 2, “Dual Time”) saw Mike Baxter confronted with a seemingly insurmountable problem: a broken disposal.
