Thurs: 12/29 This Old House Hour (PBS)
There is a reason that there are home improvement shows constantly on the air, over a variety of networks, and that is because these programs make for entertaining education for homeowners. One of the first shows that offered this combination was This Old House, which was first produced in 1979 as a one-time, 13-part series on the Boston PBS station WGBH, and has since won 17 Emmy Awards and 82 nominations. This episode the experienced hosts take on a project that requires a new foundation, a new master bath-shower, the construction of a powder room, and the replacement of living room windows. There are also tips on table saw safety.
