Tim Allen is returning to TV with a new show on History Channel called “More Power” which runs on Wednesdays at 10/9c.
The first episode of the non-fiction show aired on June 29 and sees Allen reunited with his “Home Improvement” co-star Richard Karn along with DIY YouTuber April Wilkerson.
History Channel says of the show:
“Tim Allen and Richard Karn are back in the shop to continue their quest for More Power.
“With the help of DIY Expert April Wilkerson, they’re putting all kinds of tools to the test.
“The trio will tackle one tool-centric theme per episode and celebrate the coolest, most powerful, and iconic examples of each tool—testing their limits in a way that only Tim can.
“Along the way, they’ll open the doors to Tim’s workshop and invite some of the most skilled makers from around the country to show off their creations before then heading out on field trips to play with the biggest machines that keep our world working,” they said.

Allen spoke about his new show “More Power” during a recent appearance on Extra.
“Originally started with the executive producer, Kate Fox,” Allen said.
“She and I put together a show a long, long time ago.
“That was the precursor to ‘Last Man Standing.’
“We were coming up with an idea, she and I, of how to support and acknowledge the people that do the things that do, the things that fix the things that make the things, it’s all the way down.
“The people that don’t have a political advantage or disadvantage, they just get the job done.”
His co-star Richard Karn said:
“We do fall into old patterns, but what’s wonderful is that we’ve had some years, you know, where we weren’t in that pattern and new things have happened and new ways of communicating.
“And boy, do we love to communicate.
“We love to argue with each other.”
“I don’t really have a position,” Allen said
“I just like to know what everybody else’s position is.
“I’m not trying to prove the other guy wrong, I’m trying to understand and clarify.
“So my position is clear.”
Learned and laughed so much doing this History Channel gig: ‘More Power”
Wonder where they got that cool title?
So appreciate all who fix the stuff that fixes the stuff that makes the stuff. RRR!
