“Fresh Prince of Bel Air” alum and “Dancing with the Stars” champion Alfonso Ribeiro will replace Tom Bergeron as the host of ABC’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” Bergeron announced Tuesday during the season finale of “DWTS.”
“After receiving hundreds of inquiries, stacks of video submissions and a very close audition race, one smile, one funny and sincere delivery became our standout favorite — Alfonso Riberio,” said executive producer Vin Di Bona. “We look forward to Alfonso leading ‘AFV’ into the next generation of family friendly viewership.”
ABC’s longest-running primetime entertainment show, “America’s Funniest Home Videos” returns for its 26th season this fall with the same mission — to give families something genuinely funny to enjoy together on Sunday nights. Along with a new host, the upcoming season will welcome an abundant supply of fresh clips to keep families laughing from coast to coast.
