AMERICAS FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS

ABC Sunday at 700 ET

 PTC Summary:

Production Companies: ABC Entertainment, Vin Di Bona Productions
Producer: Vin Di Bona
Creator: Vin Di Bona

As the name suggests, America’s Funniest Home Videos features humorous footage from home videos submitted by viewers from across the country. The videos are shown and then voted on by the studio audience to determine which of the video submissions is the funniest.

Occasionally people in the videos will utter profanity, which is bleeped. Sexual innuendo and nudity, implied or blurred, is surprisingly frequent. Often, animals are shown performing sexual gestures on people and objects. Other episodes have featured clips in similarly questionable taste, including men getting hit in the groin by various objects. In addition, clips frequently show people being injured by various means, such as objects thrown at them or in careless stunts they have undertaken themselves.

Parents should be aware that there are some instances of child nudity, almost always of a child’s behind, that can be cause for concern. Due to the questionable taste of some of the videos, this program may not be appropriate for family viewing.
