Despite declining ratings, it’s clear that America’s Funniest Home Videos isn’t going to be cancelled anytime soon. ABC has already renewed the venerable series for a 31st season which will air as part of the 2020-21 season. Could that be the end? Stay tuned.
Executive produced by Vin Di Bona and Michele Nasraway, America’s Funniest Home Videos is the ABC television network‘s longest-running primetime entertainment show. Previous hosts include Tom Bergeron, D.L. Hughley, and Richard Kind, John Fugelsang and Daisy Fuentes, and the original host, Bob Saget. Regular people submit amateur videos featuring their boo-boos and blunders to the competition, in hopes the studio audience will award them cash and other prizes.
