Wednesday Trivia Question

Dean Johnson and Peggy Knapp were the original hosts of what long-running home improvement series?

Fans of how-to television probably know this one without thinking twice. The show itself has been a PBS fixture since the 1980s and has featured Johnson and a series of co-hosts, Knapp being the very first. But what DIY series is it?

Hometime is the series. It debuted in 1986 with Dean Johnson and Peggy Knapp as hosts. Knapp left a year later. Johnson (who remained with the show throughout its run) continued with various co-hosts including JoJo Liebler, Susanne Egli and Robin Hartl. Dean Johnson’s final co-host was Miriam Johnson (no relation) who began in 2005 and continued with the series until its final shows in 2016.
