Although America’s Funniest Home Videos has been a mainstay on ABC for decades, spinoffs like America’s Funniest People and World’s Funniest Videos have not had the same kind of staying power. Enter the Videos After Dark TV show. Will this new, more “adult” home video series capture viewers attention and make a big splash in the Nielsen ratings? Will Videos After Dark be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An ABC comedy reality series from creator Vin Di Bona, Videos After Dark also relies on viewer-supplied home videos of real mishaps, blunders, and bad decisions, but on the new series, they’re a bit more on the “edgy” side. Bob Saget has returned to the franchise to host the program and executive produces with Di Bona and Michele Nasraway.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.
