‘Afv’ 600th Episode: Family-Friendly Appeal Keeps ABC Stalwart Humming

11 January 2017 2:18 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Our world is awash in video. Anyone toting a smartphone or a tablet can capture the momentous and the mundane with the swipe of a finger. And nowadays, it only takes a second swipe to broadcast it all in real time via social media.

Yet in a landscape of infinite choices, “America’s Funniest Home Videos” endures as a primetime institution that will celebrate its landmark 600th episode on Jan. 15.

By all rights, ABC’s hourlong smorgasbord of user-generated video should be outmoded in an era in which 300 hours of video is uploaded to YouTube every minute. But therein lies the rub. Who can possibly sort through such volume?

That’s where “Afv” exec producers Vin Di Bona and Michele Nasraway and their commando team of clip-screeners and producers come in. They do the heavy sifting through 3,500 to 5,000 clips uploaded weekly to the Afv website. All we have to do is tune at 7 p.m »

Alfonso Ribeiro Wears ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ Crown With Poise

11 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Actor Alfonso Ribeiro sashayed from victory on season 19 of “Dancing With the Stars” to hosting “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”

Ribeiro was discussing potential projects with ABC after his “DWTS” win in 2014 when the subject of the vacancy on “Afv” came up. Ribeiro knew the show would be a good fit with the clean-cut image he’s honed since co-starred with Will Smith on NBC’s “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

It was a smooth on-air transition, with Ribeiro taking the baton from Tom Bergeron, who logged 14 years on the “Afv” stage in addition to hosting “DWTS.”

Now midway through his second season, Ribeiro loves engaging in a spontaneous format with regular folks, both the clip contestants and studio audience members.

“Having fun and connecting with people is something I’ve done my whole life,” Ribeiro says. “How often do you get to go to work where you laugh all day?”
