‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’: Risqué Spinoff with Bob Saget On the Way

America’s Funniest Home Videos goes risqué with Bob Saget in a new nighttime series titled – Videos After Dark. This isn’t a venue for the whole family like America’s Funniest Videos.

The show will feature clips from America’s Funniest Home Videos that were really funny, but a bit too adult for the family hour show. The original show graces the screen on Sunday nights.

America’s Funniest Home Videos – Videos After Dark with Bob Saget

The team behind the show started a collection of these types of videos. They pulled these clips from the batches mailed to them over the years and now it’s time to share what they’ve stockpiled.

The show creator Vin Di Bona, reports that they’ve collected these clips since day-one of America’s Funniest Home Videos.

Videos After Dark and Bob Saget intend to use clips after the ABC censors gave them a thumbs-up.

Bob Saget Gets Into the Videos After Dark Adult Hour

Most of the clips presented to the censors passed the censorship criteria and they now have a place in this Bob Saget AFV spinoff show. Unlike AFV, the Videos After Dark series won’t take a family hour time slot during primetime.

AFV is a Sunday night destination that doesn’t interfere with bedtime for the kids around the nation. It starts at 7 p.m. ET on Sunday night. Videos After Dark will get a 10 pm time slot sometime during 2019. By this time of night, most kids are tucked away in bed.

AFV – Videos After Dark No Prizes

Unlike its parent show AFV, Videos After Dark won’t offer a contest for the best clips. The video clips won’t see any prizes from Bob Saget like America’s Funniest Home Videos. Saget will also do a bit more performing than he did on AFV.  He won’t just crack a few occasional jokes, no, they have something different in mind.

Bob Saget, who is a comedian as well as a TV star, will perform material throughout the show. There’s a studio audience for Saget, much like AFV. But this venue captures a “nightclub-style feel” for the new Videos After Dark series. Anyone that knows Bob Saget and his comedy, knows that his jokes aren’t for the family.

America’s Funniest Home Videos – Risque Stuff

America’s Funniest Home Videos range from the funniest mishaps at home to the funniest sport’s fails and everything else in between. The show debuted in 1989 and they boast 774 episodes to the series. Today ABC renewed the contract for AFV for another two years.

Videos After Dark won’t debut until next year. Still, fans of America’s Funniest Home Videos can tune into ABC Sunday night with host Alfonso Ribeiro. Not only is this spinoff show news, but Ribeiro is happy to let the AFV fans know they’re sticking around a while longer. He took to Twitter to pass on a few words, which is seen below.
