I loved him in Sniper.

Still mostly crotch hits and people falling off trampolines?

It's the exact opposite of his older brother, Harrison Bergeron.

I hated him as host. No one could top Bob Saget.

When I see Saget in things now, it's like he's going out of his way to show you how dirty he is, to balance out the "nice guy" image he projected in that show and Full House.  Sometimes it works (like his endless version of the titular joke in the movie "The Aristocrats") , sometimes it just seems like he's trying way too hard.

I liked his joke on The Larry Sanders Show.

"We went to the great pyramids and even toured the Sphinx. Well, the front of the Sphinx. They won't let anyone tour the back anymore. You know why? 'Cause it sphinx back there!"

YEah, but Daisy Fuentes gave the show some much needed eye candy.

I like Bergeron.   Saget was Ok but I could not farking stand it when he had Dave Coulier on the show. It was horrible. They would do a routine featuring a jackolope that made me cringe.

My kids love AFV.  I don't mind watching crotch hits and trampoline disasters with them.
 
2014-03-12 01:41:12 PM  
Tom Bergeron was a perfect host. Affable and very clean.
That's a good gig. How much do you think he got paid, close to a mil a year? He's been hosting it since at least... 2002-ish? Nice steady gig, good money, etc.

Really?!?!  AFV was on? I thought YouTube and DailyMotion basically killed it a decade ago.
 
2014-03-12 01:48:37 PM  
Don't watch the show (used to when I was a kid) but my parents occasionally have it on when I visit. Is it me or do ALL of the videos on there seem like they're from the late 80's/early 90's, even in recent episodes?

Watch the show with kids and it is 10 times funnier.

I'm surprised they're still making new episodes. When I see the show, I just assume it's syndicated reruns from 20 years ago.

- google-  Yup.  Wikipedia specifically  mentions the farking jackolope skits.  God  I hate Dave Coulier.

In other news, Tom Bergeron is apparently a Whovian. Cool!
 
2014-03-12 01:54:56 PM  
One incredible consistency about the show has been the audience dress code.  Coming to watch a live viewing of crotch shots, cat videos, boating disasters and sports-related crotch shots?  Better shave and wear the good tie.

Just give it up, man.  Alanis Morissette isn't coming back.
 
2014-03-12 02:01:07 PM  
Those Saget years consisted solely of him narrating a fake dialog in a high pitched voice while a shiatty stupid unfunny video played.  But before he was on How I Met Your Mother, he did America's Funniest Home Videos.  Zing.
 
2014-03-12 02:03:03 PM  
Alanis is ok looking, but man with short hair, that chick is a knockout. Dont know why
 
2014-03-12 02:08:55 PM  
When I had pay tv I loved watching AFV. Bergeron was the best host. The Daisy Fuentes years, while nice to look at, were painfully unfunny.
 
2014-03-12 02:12:05 PM  
I have a weird condition that causes me to laugh uncontrollably when I see someone get hit in the head. I can't explain it. Thinking about someone getting hit in the head doesn't do anything, but seeing it makes me laugh until I can't breathe. This show would cripple me for 30 minutes. I blame having been hit in the head with a golfball in my teen years.

Tom Bergeron was far and away the best host.
 
2014-03-12 02:20:11 PM  
What was that other show called that was hosted by Dave Coulier?
 
2014-03-12 02:24:05 PM  
He never should have left Breakfast Time.

America's Funniest People jpsted by Coulier and Arlene Sorkin.

Did I ever say how much I hate Coulier, because it's alot.

I'm personally very sad to hear this. Like others said above, I enjoy watching AFV with my 6-year old daughter. The videos are repetitive and stupid fun, but Tom Bergeron's snarky humor is excellent. He knows it's a goofy show and most of the people he interviews are morons, but he communicates it with subtlety and respect. He makes it FAR easier to watch than Saget did. And I like Saget.
 
2014-03-12 02:37:46 PM  
My kids were at least 9 before the realized that the show was called AFV and not our in-house title "People Falling Down."

A stoner friend was visiting and had that MTV show Ridiculous on. I almost smashed my own TV. That show is freaking horrible. Douchebag host. Douchebag chick who laughs. Douchebag fake AV guy. Douchebag guest.

Now it is all occupying memory resources in my brain.

That's a good way to put it. But now that my kids are teens, we prefer to watch Ridiculousness. It's "edgier" than AFV, so the kids like it, but not purposely raunchy like Tosh.

I think this is how the show survives. So many people don't know how to convert their old movies so the show still uses those and that's it niche market. Anybody with funny digital videos would just put them on YouTube and forget it, but for AFV it's "Send in your videos!" Although they do say at the end of the show you can go to the site to upload your videos, so maybe I'm wrong.

Wait, there are interviews? AFV is so strange because I occasionally am reminded that it is still a real show that is still on network television. It's like being occasionally reminded that there is a colony of mole men living in the sewers and you just keep forgetting.

No worries. MTV is designed for kids and I have no problem with kids watching it. Unfortunately, I had to watch it for a brief time.

Breakfast Time never should have left FX. When it moved to FOX broadcast network, it died the death of a thousand cuts, not the least of which was killing the puppet.

I get what you're saying, but I still can't fathom how there's still enough of that to consider it a "market" or simply a "niche".

I'm not proud of this, but I subscribe on Youtube to a couple different channels who regularly upload newer OW MY BALLS material (compiling all the individual OW MY BALLS clips uploaded separately), so whatever fill of infantile humor I need I can cure in just a matter of minutes instantly.

Saget was a comedian with a filthy routine way before AFV or full house. It wasn't something he started to show he was edgy.

While I do watch MTV with the kids, watching someone get hit in the nuts is funny no matter who the host is.
