Probably not exactly the renewal news that most of you are waiting for today, but ABC has renewed America's Funniest Home Videos for a 23rd season.

ABC has also picked up Wife Swap (a 13 episode order mixing celebrity and non-celebrity versions)

  • Steven Leitner

    How long MUST this show go on?

  • Bookworm

    That’s nice and all but this is really not what we want to hear.

    I’m waiting for renewals on:

    Apt 2B
    and Happy Endings

    It seems like ABC does it in groups and I’m hoping this is the next one up!! You never know but one can only hope. All of them are looking good for renewals; so that always helps!

    With the fading ratings I fiqure it was a goner. I think it is only a matter of time before the show in canned. I wonder if this will be its last session ?

  • Bob

    Another cheap show to produce. No wonder it is lasting forever. The host must be very happy.

  • Rebecca

    It’s called Apt 23, not 2B – that’s one I’m waiting to hear about, too. Also HE and LMS.

    Good for AFV. Tom Bergeron is the best host this show has had, and we watch every Sunday (one of the few network shows we’ll let our 6 year old watch).

  • Sid

    I’m waiting on SCANDAL!

    I’ve noticed that you always include your photo with your posts. Do you have to upload it every time you post?

    Remember when people had to actually mail in a VHS tape to be on America’s Funniest Home videos? Yes, that’s how long this show has been on the air.

  • John A

    I thought Wife Swap ended years ago?

  • SJ

    Resurrecting Wife Swap? Yeah, totally not the renewal news I was hoping to hear from ABC today! :)

  • LLL

    ABC needs to quit playing games and start renewing more primetime dramas and comedites.

  • Bookworm


    Sorry about that one. I always write “2B” instead of “23”.


    Where is SCANDAL’s renewal?

  • Survivor Fan

    Wife Swap was not resurrected today. It aired a season this winter. It had been canceled, but this is actually the revival’s second season.

  • SherLOCKED (The Mighty Cringe)

    Just renew Last Man Standing already!

  • Raykov

    Well, I think AFV is renewed because it’s cheap, but it’s pointless show since there’s YouTube and I was sure Wife Swap would be cancelled again considering the rating but I guess it’s just another cheap show, too.

  • Anna

    What about Body of Proof?

  • Rebecca

    It automatically shows up next to my screen name when I post. Holly posted the Gravatar instructions. I actually wish I could change my picture, lol. But it’s set with the email address I use.

  • Rebecca

    With YouTube videos you can’t win money, though, right? With AFV at least you could win $10,000 or $100,000. They have two old video tapes of mine somewhere in the vault, lol. Not shown yet.
