HOME Improvement" has the funniest pilot of the new TV season, but its time period could squelch a few laughs in future episodes.This new ABC show, which premieres tonight at 8:30 on Channel 13 (WJZ), is a showcase for comedian Tim Allen, whose stand-up routine focuses on the odd relationship between masculinity and power tools."Home Improvement" gives Allen's character of Tim Taylor his own home fix-up show in which he gets to dispense handyman wisdom and do-it-yourself tips.Then the cameras follow Taylor home where his desire to re-create the world along the lines of his ridiculous macho vision run afoul, not only of the laws of physics and gravity, but also of his wife Jill, who is quick with the ego-deflating line.

Richard Karn seems like a regular Joe munching a hamburger with all the works at the patio commissary at Disney Studios during a rehearsal break from ABC's "Home Improvement."In fact, he's not too far removed from Al Borland, the character he plays on the enormously popular Tim Allen sitcom. Al is the stoic, bearded, flannel-shirted assistant of fumbling Tim Taylor (Mr. Allen) on "Tool Time," the show-within-a-show on "Home Improvement."

A four-goal second period propelled the Baltimore Skipjacks to an 8-4 American Hockey League victory over the Springfield Indians at the Baltimore Arena last night.The triumph over the Northern Division leaders broke a three-game losing streak and moved the Skipjacks back into second place in the Southern Division, a point in front of the idle Binghamton Rangers."I was happy with the play of all three of my lines and the defense, with Joel Quenneville and Mark Ferner playing solidly," Skipjacks coach Rob Laird said.

Hershey coach Mike Eaves said he wouldn't want to see the Skipjacks on his schedule every night, but games between the arch-rivals played in multiple strings, like tonight's at the Arena (7:30, WLIF-AM 1300), don't bother him a bit."They are always a tough team to beat, but it seems like we play up to the level of competition," said Eaves, whose team is 10-12-5 against the rest of the league but 4-4 against the Jacks and 2-2 here. "My guys really get up for these games and put out a little extra."

Skipjacks coach Robbie Laird got what he called the final piece of the puzzle after last night's game in Hershey.The Washington Capitals reassigned left wing Brent Hughes to the Jacks, filling out the roster for Friday's opener at the Arena against the same Bears. The Caps also sent defenseman John Slaney back to junior hockey in Cornwall, Ont.Hughes, who scored three goals in four preseason games with the Caps, will report to the Jacks today."He had a terrific camp and he'll be a welcome addition to our team," said Laird, who also liked what he saw from many of his players in last night's 6-5 overtime win in the final preseason game against the Bears.

If you know any 8-year-olds who are into Robert Bly and the men's movement, have them tune in to "Home Improvement" in the weeks ahead. It's the perfect show for them.That's not meant as a total put-down of the new ABC sitcom, which stars Tim Allen as the manly male host of "Tool Time," a TV show aimed at do-it-yourselfers. Allen's a very funny guy and tonight's premiere (8:30, Channel 13) is very funny as well.The problem is that ABC doesn't know what it wants this show to be. The producers handed the network a pilot that was both yuk-yuk funny and spiced with smart satire on male-female relationships and the men's movement.
