After serving as host of America’s Funniest Home Videos for many years, Tom Bergeron left the venerable ABC program last season. Alfonso Ribeiro is the new host and the producers have an opportunity to shake things up a bit. Will a new host bring an upturn in the ratings or will they continue to fall? Will AFV be renewed for a 27th season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
5/23 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

Last year comparison: The 25th season of AFV averaged a 1.32 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.14 million total viewers.
Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
