Earlier this evening on Twitter, we shared that ABC plans on videotaping an episode of ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ at the Disneyland theme park on April 18, 2015, with a planned audience of 400 (though according to the permit itself, it’s actually 399). Shortly thereafter, host Tom Bergeron responded back to us noting that it will be his last time hosting the show and that ‘those will be a very special 400 to me!’
ABC continues its commitment to world-class storytelling and new creative voices with the announcement of its 2014-15 slate of programming, including the addition of 12 new series. Paul Lee, president, ABC Entertainment Group, will unveil the network’s new lineup to the advertising and media communities this afternoon at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall.
‘Our schedule reflects a judicious mix of boldness and stability,’ said Lee. ‘ABC is finishing the season with momentum — we now have building blocks on every night of the week, and we’re using them to launch our new series. This season we set out to develop passion projects from world-class storytellers and showcase the faces and voices of America. Both plans unleashed a wave of creativity and we’re extremely excited about the new slate.’
ABC has provided us with these photos of emcee Tom Bergeron exploring Disneyland theme park as he hosts the ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos Christmas Spectacular’ which premieres on the ABC television network on Thursday, December 8, 2011.
This holiday season, ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ celebrates from the Disneyland® Resort in California, with host Tom Bergeron highlighting the best classic Christmas videos in ‘AFHV’ history, along with all-new clips. The exciting episode includes: videos featuring the hazards of decorating, as lights, mantels, trees and people all go down; videos of kids reacting to lousy gifts, or causing mayhem during recitals, or the hilarious things they say while sitting on Santa’s lap; and videos of cats and dogs getting in on the Christmas mischief as they investigate gifts and decorations.
