America’s Funniest Home Videos (abbreviated as AFV) is an American video clip television series on ABC, which features humorous homemade videos that are submitted by viewers. The most common videos feature unintentional physical comedy, pets or children and some staged pranks. Originally airing as a special in 1989, it later debuted as a regular weekly series in 1990. The show was hosted by Bob Saget for the 1989 special and the first eight seasons of the series incarnation. After Saget’s retirement from hosting in 1997, John Fugelsang and Daisy Fuentes later took over as co-host for its ninth and tenth seasons. After two years of being shown as occasional specials, hosted by various actors and comedians such as D. L. Hughley and Richard Kind, ABC brought the series back on Friday nights in 2001 with new host Tom Bergeron, who has since become the series’ longest-serving host, hosting 15 seasons. Bergeron announced in 2014 that he would leave as host of the show, and Alfonso Ribeiro took over as host in 2015. On October 29, 2018, ABC renewed AFV for two more seasons, bringing to its 30th (which premiered on Sunday, September 29, 2019) and 31st seasons.
