U.S. reality show based on the British series "Strictly Come Dancing," where celebrities partner up with professional dancers and compete against each other in weekly elimination rounds to determine a winner.
Carrie Ann Inaba,
"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

This show is still on and going strong and by strong I mean they somehow haven't run out of videos of guys getting hit in the groin by their kids with plastic wiffle ball bats yet. And we never will because now everyone tapes everything so every time one of these "accidents" happens, and I put that in quotes because a lot of the time on this show it seems pretty obvious that people are deliberately doing stupid things just to try to get on the show and to hopefully win the thousands of dollars prize money. I used to like this show as a kid but now I can't stand it because it's just the same stuff week after week, and Tom Bergeron is the unfunniest hack in the world, he somehow manages to make Bob Saget look fantastic.
