OK, don’t lie: When you saw the headline, you thought America’s Funniest Videos, right? Did you know that America’s Funniest Home Videos has been running since 1989, and that it still gets decent ratings for ABC? It’s true. However, Tom Bergeron hasn’t hosted it in six years, although he did host for nearly 15 years. Alfonso Ribeiro has been the host for the last 5 years.
In any respect, that has nothing with the show that Tom Bergeron was fired from yesterday. He and Erin Andrews were canned from Dancing with the Stars after 15 years and 6 years, respectively. Bergeron broke the news on Twitter:
Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It's been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I'm grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?— Tom Bergeron (@Tom_Bergeron) July 13, 2020
Maybe, if we can change the title. How about "Entitled A**holes Edition?" https://t.co/2w2AeLgWuD— Tom Bergeron (@Tom_Bergeron) June 28, 2020
Meanwhile, Erin Andrews bids farewell, too.
What new direction could the show possibly be taking? It’s dancing with D-list celebrities. Are they going to put masks on them next season? They’re not seriously trying to make a season this year, are they?
