Last season, despite some very low ratings, FOX renewed World’s Funniest Fails for a second season, likely because it’s very cheap to produce. They’ve now shortened the title to just World’s Funniest and have expanded the show’s focus. Will the numbers rise in season two or will they fall even lower? Cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
Hosted by Terry Crews, World’s Funniest showcases the best in viral and soon-to-be-viral videos, featuring funny and adorable animals and kids, as well as human triumphs and fails. Each episode features a panel of celebrities and comedians who comment on the videos and choose their favorites.
