Los Angeles—In an announcement that has shocked critics and audiences alike, the executive producers of Home Improvement have issued a memo detailing proposed ways to make the popular ABC-TV comedy series suck more. “Many people believe we’ve sucked as badly as you can suck,” co-executive producer Josh Hessel said. “But, believe me, we can do better.” Proposed changes include having star Tim Allen grunt more often in place of written dialogue; reducing other characters’ lines to a single catch phrase each; and substituting the program’s synthesized laugh track with the pained moans of a lone, dying elderly woman.
