The new guy who will show the country embarrassing and hilarious clips as host of America's Funniest Home Videos will be none other than Alfonso Ribeiro, a.k.a. Carlton Banks, a.k.a. last season's king of Dancing With the Stars. Fittingly enough, the news was announced by the show's current host, Tom Bergeron, on tonight's finale of DWTS. Ribeiro will usher in the 26th season of the show, ABC's longest-running prime-time entertainment franchise, this fall. "After receiving hundreds of inquiries, stacks of video submissions, and a very close audition race, one smile, one funny and sincere delivery became our standout favorite — Alfonso Riberio," executive producer Vin Di Bona said in a statement. Amen. Long live Carlton and the Carlton. May they both enjoy a successful decade (at least!) of showing this nation how funny and clumsy it is. »

This review is based on the first episode of season one.
When I was a kid, I thought the pinnacle of mature adult entertainment was a movie like The New Guy. Awash in the lavish, hormone-fueled juncture between middle school and high school, my friends and I mistook PG-13 level profanities and boner jokes as what every adult must be hiding behind those elusive and mythical R ratings. And then a few years later I watched The 40-Year-Old Virgin. I was an idiot, as most 12-year-olds are, in understanding what actual, substantial and effective mature entertainment really means.
I bring all of this up, because watching PlayStation’s first foray into televised entertainment reminded me of being at that age, in those moments of assuming profanity and sex for automatic maturity. With that, and I say this with as little vile as I can muster: Powers is The New Guy of television shows. »
