The ONLY funniest video show that was done right!
14 January 2006 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

I don't understand how "America's Funniest Home Videos" still lives on today, and "The World's Funniest" got canceled when it was so much better. "The World's Funniest" had much more than just stupid home videos, they had funny video from TV shows, movies, commercials, and home videos. And they showed videos that were actually funny, not just "cute".

And more importantly, the show had a GOOD host. Which is one of the biggest factors in all of this. Beginning with Bob Saget, "America's Funniest Home Videos" has had nothing but terribly lame show hosts, they tell bad jokes and are incredibly annoying. James Brown did a much better job of hosting "The World's Funniest", his comments were short, comical, and entertaining. Plus there was no time wasted interacting with a live show audience.

As of today, this is still the ONE AND ONLY funniest videos show that has been done right! I wish they would at least show re-runs of "The World's Funniest" (preferably in place of all the places they show "America's Funniest Home Videos").
