Viewers from around America send in funny moments captured (or staged) by their own video cameras. Results are often painful to watch. :-)

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>

Bob Saget = Unfunny
9 February 2000 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

This show was funny for about three months, before all the videos started getting staged by people with sadistic senses of humor. After that each episode was an experiment in horror, accompanied by the frighteningly unfunny sound effects and one liners of Bob "Full House" Saget. It really makes you wonder how awful the stuff that they rejected was.

How this show went on as long as it did is a complete mystery to me. Personally I suspect that it was underwritten by Horror Writers of America, who used the clips for inspiration. I hope that people in other countries don't believe that this is the kind of stuff all Americans find funny, because it's not.

Bob Saget seems to be unemployed now, thank goodness. Let's hope it stays that way.
