America’s Funniest Home Videos Season 31

Was America’s Funniest Home Videos cancelled or renewed for season 31? When does it start on ABC? Who will be returning for the new season? In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.

What Is America’s Funniest Home Videos About?

AFV is based on the Tokyo Broadcasting System program Fun TV with Kato-chan and Ken-chan, which featured a segment in which viewers were invited to send in video clips from their home movies; ABC, which owns half the program, pays a royalty fee to the Tokyo Broadcasting System for the use of the format (although the original parent show left the air in 1992). Contestants can submit their videos by uploading them on the show’s official website,, on the AFV applications for Android or iOS or on the AFV Official Facebook fan page, or by sending them via mail to a Hollywood, California post-office box address. The majority of the video clips are short (5–30 seconds) and are mostly related to the host’s monologues. Videos usually feature people and animals getting into humorous accidents caught on camera; while others include clever marriage proposals, people and animals displaying interesting talents (such as pets that sound like they speak certain words or phrases, or genius toddlers with the ability to name all past U.S. Presidents), and practical jokes. A group of screeners view the submitted tapes, giving them a grade (on a scale of 1–10) based on that particular tape’s humor. The videos deemed the funniest by the screeners then go on to the show’s producers and then is turned over to Di Bona and another producer for final approval. Home video material that involves staged accidents, or/and adults, children, or babies getting seriously injured or the abuse of animals, or overall does not meet ABC network standards and practices are generally not accepted and will not appear on the show. Every week, the producers choose three videos that the studio audience will vote on. The winner wins $10,000 and is in the running for the $100,000 prize at the end of a block of episodes, while the runner-up receives $3,000 and the third place video receives $2,000. The winners of the $100,000 prize then compete for a grand prize, supplied by Adventures by Disney. The program’s studio segments are taped in front of a studio audience (although the specials that aired in 1999 and 2000 only featured pre-recorded audience responses). Audience members are asked to dress in “business casual or nicer.”
