America's Funniest Home Videos (currently abbreviated AFV, previously AFHV) returns with more of the amazing and hilarious home videos that have been an American television institution on ABC for 20 seasons. The videos, submitted by viewers, offer big laughs and compete to win big money throughout each season of the show. In addition to the weekly contests with the prize of $10,000, special $100,000 prizes are awarded during the season to video buffs whose wildly funny or unusual video clips are judged favorites by studio audiences. These winners come back at the end of the season to compete for the ultimate grand prize.
Host Tom Bergeron continues to introduce the comic clips that capture the unexpectedly funny things that happen when adults, children, animals and sometimes even inanimate objects are at their spontaneous best. From practical jokes to home improvement plans gone awry, from animal mishaps to just flat out strange behavior, America's Funniest Home Videos pulls out all the stops to present a hilarious look at everyday people caught on tape in their most embarrassing moments. However, this unique look in the lives of normal Americans also proves that everyone does humorous things once in a while.
