Trivia

Host Kevin O'Connor was a homeowner in Boston who had asked the producers for help. They liked what they saw, and had him back on camera a couple of times as screen tests. He was then offered the job, when the current host at the time Steve Thomas, wanted to move on to other projects. See more »

A great idea!
13 October 2003 | by matlock-6See all my reviews

A brand new show in 2003, Ask This Old House gave a lot of us what we wanted: a show dedicated to helping all kinds of people with their individual home maintenance issues.

The guys cover everything from the simplest of tasks (putting a deadbolt lock on a door) to the complex installing a toilet in a basement bathroom, complete with drains and pumpout system).

There's a little light humor and good camaraderie, and the segment they call "What is it?" is particularly amusing and informative. It's incredible that they can keep coming up with so many obscure and weird tools.
