STAMFORD, Conn. and SAN JOSE, Calif., JAN. 18, 2022 — Emmy® Award-winning series Ask This Old House is celebrating its milestone 20th season with a special 20th Anniversary episode on Thursday, January 20th. The special features a look back at memorable moments, fun stories, cast interviews and a recap of the legacy of the beloved show.

The special will premiere on PBS as well as the all-new dedicated This Old House premium subscription channel on The Roku Channel. Viewers will be able to stream for free on demand on The Roku Channel the following Monday.
Ask This Old House launched as a sister show to This Old House in October of 2002 to make house calls answering homeowners’ questions. The show set out to “help real homeowners feel more confident to be able to do more work on their own house,” said Ask This Old House and This Old House general contractor, Tom Silva. From big cities to small hometowns, Ask This Old House has made house calls in all 50 states. From Graceland and the mountains of Wyoming to Hawaii and the Indianapolis Speedway. The show even helped pitch in after disaster struck in Texas due to Hurricane Harvey.
“Ask This Old House has traveled across the country to help educate and support real homeowners with real answers from our terrific crew – and that’s only part of the reason the show continues to resonate with fans,” said Dan Suratt, Vice President of This Old House, Roku. “This brand is trusted by generations of home improvement enthusiasts and we hope to continue that legacy for many more seasons to come.”
The Ask This Old House special features Kevin O’Connor, Tom Silva, Richard Trethewey, Jenn Nawada, Mark McCullough, Mauro Henrique, Ross Trethewey, Nathan Gilbert, Heath Eastman and more.
