Bob Saget reunites with ‘AFV’ producer for new ABC clip show

Bob Saget is headed back to ABC for another clip-style show, re-teaming with “America’s Funniest Home Videos” producer Vin Di Bona for the more adult-themed, “Videos After Dark.”

“Videos After Dark” will feature Saget offering his comedic take on old clips from the “AFV” team that were deemed too racy to air on the show, which ran on Sunday evenings. Saget hosted the first eight seasons of “AFV,” along with his starring role on ABC’s sitcom, “Full House.” Saget reprised his “Full House” character Danny Tanner on the Netflix revival, “Fuller House.”

Former “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” star Alfonso Ribeiro is the show’s current host, which was picked up for two more seasons on Monday.

“It is with a great sense of pride we look to our 30th and 31st-year pickup,” said Di Bona. “Our audience depends on us to deliver quality family programs, and we delight in the capacity to give the nation and the world at least one great belly laugh a week!”

Despite Saget’s early career on the two family friendly ABC series, he has become known more for his adult-oriented stand up comedy.

Rob Mills, senior vice president, Alternative Late Night & Specials, ABC Entertainment, said, “‘AFV’ has been a fixture in households across America for decades, and we are so happy that this show still resonates. And now the generation that grew up with the hilarious Bob Saget as the host of ‘AFV’ is old enough to stay up past 10 p.m. to see him on ‘Videos After Dark.'”
