About the show

America’s Funniest Home Videos (also known under the title America’s Funniest Videos and AFV) is a long-running American reality comedy television show that is currently airing on the ABC channel in the United States. This show can truly be considered one of the ABC’s staple programs. AFV was created by Vin Di Bona back in 1989 based on a popular Japanese TV show Kato-chan Ken-chan Gokigen TV. The series is produced for ABC by Vin Di Bona Productions and ABC Entertainment and executive produced by Vin Di Bona, Michele Nasraway and Todd Thicke. Season 1 of the popular comedy show debuted on the ABC channel on January 14, 1990.

The premise of AFV is very simple: the program showcases funny videos submitted by viewers. The most popular themes are pets and animals, kids, physical comedy, pranks and practical jokes. In every episode, several videos are chosen by producers for the live audience to vote for, and at the end of each episode, the author of the winning video wins $10,000.

Season 26 of America’s Funniest Home Videos premiered on the ABC channel in the US on Sunday, October 11, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT. The new cycle of AFV has a new host, Alfonso Ribeiro. Ribeiro took over the hosting duties from Tom Bergeron who left the show after 14 years (2001-2015). Over the years, the program was also hosted by Bob Saget (1989–1997) and by John Fugelsang & Daisy Fuentes (1998-1999). The program is currently narrated by Jess Harnell.

UPDATED March 4, 2016: The longest-running entertainment program in the history of the ABC network, America's Funniest Home Videos has been officially greenlit by the new President of the company for another cycle.
