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>

It Fell On Its Own Sword
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the show first came on in 1990, it was funny, namely because of its novelty value. Home videos were still relatively rare, and there were already occasional programs depicting the occasional flubbed lines, minor accidents, etc. by professional television people. Why not expand the idea to amateurs making their videos?

And there were funny events such as minor accidents at gatherings, or while playing sports, or people who were supposed to do or say one thing but forgot or goofed, or animals or kids doing something they weren't supposed to. These things happen in real life, after all.

Of course, as the years went by and the show started offering "funniest" awards, inevitably people would send in staged "bloopers" or things that were shocking rather than humorous, or any of a number of outrageous actions in a desperate attempt to top other videos. In other words, people were trying anything to get on television to be seen by millions. Which I supposed was inevitable during the show's too-long run.
