Will ABC cancel or renew America’s Funniest Home Videos for a 29th season? My gut says that, unless it ends up really hemorrhaging viewers this year, this show is likely to score a renewal — maybe even through its 30th season. The Alphabet Network’s more costly scripted slate is currently its biggest concern. That said, I reserve the right to change my mind, if things take a turn. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens, so subscribe for free updates on any America’s Funniest Home Videos cancellation or renewal news.
