* ForegoneConclusion: See SpotlightStealingSquad below: If a baby/toddler/little kid make it to the finals, go ahead and change the channel - they're probably going to win. ''Especially'' if said child is behaving like a complete brat.

** Beginning early on in Tom's run and lasting through most of his run was "Tom's Home Movies" where Tom's head would be superimposed over the head of somebody else from an old clip, most of the time the person something comical actually happened to.
** Alfonso Ribiero's run has "A Moment With..." which features one very short clip of something very strange.
** Ribiero has "This One Time on AFV" where he shows one clip and makes its events into a story.
** Ribiero also has "Throwback Thursday (But on a Sunday)" where he shows a series of older clips.

The show can be considered the proto-RealityShow concept, as it existed through audience interaction. [=AFHV=] has gone through three "eras", being originally hosted by comedian Creator/BobSaget until 1997, then by Daisy Fuentes and Creator/JohnFugelsang from 1998-99. Over 1999-2000 it existed as occasional specials rather than a regular series, but it returned to the old format in 2001 with Tom Bergeron as host and has remained an [=ABC=] fixture since. (A ''lot'' of people are only familiar with the Bob Saget version, which is odd since the Bergeron version has since surpassed the Saget version in terms of seasons, not to mention the Bergeron episodes are the only ones that ever air on ABC nowadays. And the show is heavily promoted, so you'd have to have lived under a rock since the late 1990s to ''not'' know this show is still on, and has a different host.

After fifteen long years, Tom Bergeron announced his retirement as the series host. His final show aired on May 17th, 2015. Tom himself will continue to host shows, his most famous ([[EnforcedPlug and most advertised on the show]]) being Series/DancingWithTheStars. Many were still sad to see Tom go though, as it felt like an end of an era for the series, and with AFV having slowly been losing grounds to Internet video sites such as Website/YouTube over the years, many are concerned where the series may be heading. On May 22, 2015, it was announced on the Youtube AFV channel that Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton from ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'') will be taking over as host.

* HistoryRepeats: Tom Bergeron had started off as a semi-known host from Boston and previously seen during the "interactive" days of Creator/{{FX}}, before being picked to head up the 1998 revival of ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'' and then this show. Come 2015, and Alfonso Ribero becomes host- slightly different path before, but he had also hosted a revival of a Creator/MerrillHeatter game show (in this case, ''[[Series/{{Gambit}} Catch 21]]''), and then this show.
