As America's Funniest Home Videos gained in popularity, the producers found that many people were starting to stage their own situations, rather than depending on random chance to grant them a winning shot. This program was created to give these amateur film producers a chance to show off their creativity and perhaps win the $100,000 grand prize. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

"America's Unfunniest People"
3 March 2003 | by (San Ho) – See all my reviews

Thanks to TBS, I can re-watch all these stupid episodes I admitted were guilty pleasures even when I was nine-years-old. The now dead and forgotten Dave Coulier, jealous that his `Full House' co-star Bob Saget was actually getting work outside of said nauseating sitcom, thought it a good idea to give America 10,000 more reasons to act incredibly stupid (like they need any more incentive). Shamefully copying `America's Funniest Videos' right down to the bland cartoon voices and banal format, the sole difference was a bubbly ditz as co-host, alternating between Tawney Kitaen and Arleen Sorkin, both equally boring and stupid. Had Kitaen reprised her hooker role from Bachelor Party and starting kicking the audience like she did her real life husband, the show would have generated at a least a few chuckles.

Jack Ching Bada Bing (I probably spelled that wrong, but I don't care) as the mischievous and revengeful antelope was remotely humorous as was the `This Old Shack' segments, but that curly-haired man child that kept scaring his transvestite mom was more disturbing than fun-loving. People would send in videos of themselves doing ordinary acts such as blowing into a sheet of glass or making a monkey face - stuff so unfunny, you long for the scenes of a stupid dog chasing its tail. One woman won the grand prize for doing nothing more than jiggling the rolls of fat on her extended waistline. A low point in American pop culture, but I why do I keep coming back?
