Bob Saget Wants to Submit a Tape of Himself to 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (VIDEO)

Bob Saget, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Bob Saget isn't proud of the story he told on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), but he must have felt it was important for him to share it. He left absolutely no detail out, and did a masterful job of building a growing sense of dread, anticipation and suspense as the story progressed.

From the details of him wearing a robe and Ugg slippers to the fact that there was a ladder near a pool, and a jacuzzi was involved, we had an idea of where it was going. But still the exact scenario was pretty funny.

To hang a hummingbird feeder, he hooked a wire to a hammer and climbed the ladder to throw the hammer and wire over a tree branch. "I threw it, the hammer came off and came at me and I fell off the ladder into the jacuzzi," he admitted.

Wife Swap, Supernanny, AFV renewed

afv logoABC is happy with its current slate of reality programming. This week, the network announced it will renew Wife Swap, Supernanny and America's Funniest Home Videos (AFV) for one more season each. That puts Wife Swap in season four, Supernanny in season four and AFV in season 18 (although, that's debatable since it was technically off the air for two years in 1999-2000). Of all those shows, I'm really only excited about AFV. It still makes me laugh. Wife Swap and Supernanny are good for The Soup content.

ABC is also expected to renew Dancing with the Stars, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and The Bachelor.

Bad submissions to America's Funniest Home Videos

Tom BergeronClever piece over at McSweeneys.net, describing some of the supposed videos submitted to ABC's America's Funniest Home Videos that were rejected for one reason or another. One of my favorites:

AFV712940: Fifteen minutes of still footage of washing machine. Strongest theory to date is that a man inside the washing machine is waiting to emerge in order to surprise girlfriend with marriage proposal.

By the way, is anyone else amazed that America's Funniest Videos is still on the air?

The Five: Life lessons learned from AFV

afvThis is season 16 of America's Funniest Home Videos and I can't believe it still makes me laugh. And, we've been laughing at pretty much the same things for years, haven't we? We humans are pretty stupid since the same stuff keeps happening to everyone all over the country and people keep recording it and sending it to ABC to show the rest of America how stupid they are. Here are The Five: Life lessons learned from America's Funniest Home Videos.

5. If there's a bat, someone is going to get hit in the nuts. It can be a baseball bat or a whiffle bat. And it doesn't matter whether a kid or an adult is swinging it, bats always target the groin area. Other telltale signs someone will get hit in the nuts include a golf club, a pinata, a ball, and a father wrestling with his young child. And if you are lucky enough to avoid the swipe to the groin, no doubt the ball will hit you in the face.
