Storyline

"America's Funniest Home Videos" was inspired by a series of successful TV specials, where home viewers were invited to send in videotapes of their "funniest" moments. In "AFHV," host Saget provided commentary to the home videos which often showed wedding and sports bloopers, children and pets either being themselves or getting into trouble, furniture or other objects giving way (usually contributing to someone's fall) and "comical" reactions to getting inadvertently hit (usually in the groin). Sometimes, certain videos were grouped into themes, such as Christmas or a summer vacation, or had sentimental value to them, such as a marriage proposal; other times, videos were set to classic rock tunes. The top three videos of the week as selected by the producers were eligible for each week's $10,000 top prize; the audience would electronically vote for their one favorite video. Weekly winners got to compete in a later special for a $100,000 top prize. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Justification for terrorists
22 November 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Tom Bergeron is my least favorite person. If Tom Bergeron, Hitler, and Osama Bin Laden were in the same room and I had a gun with 2 bullets, I'd shoot Tom Bergeron twice. The man is paid to speak puns. Terrible puns that even the eldest of grandmothers would not dare speak to their grandchildren, either out of compassion or fear of the scorn and rejection they'd receive from their family. 1 out of every 100 videos featured on this television spectacle of garbage could be considered funny by the average person. The rest are filled with pain, misery, or non-events.

If you enjoy sitting down for an evening to watch a pathetic hack old man pander to the outdated idea of family humor by doing terrible voice-overs and repeating dry humorless punchlines to people getting hurt ad nauseam, then I implore you to find the nearest toilet and drown yourself in it.

There was probably a point in time where this show was relevant, maybe even good. Now it serves as an awful televised version of youtube, where you cannot choose what you watch, everything is terrible, and your stroke survivor grandpa is making commentary about everything that happens in a desperate attempt to be funny over your shoulder. I would like this to be cancelled, so the money can be used for better things, such as sewage management or the production of crossword puzzles.
