These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way.

YMMV: Americas Funniest Home Videos
Dude, Not Funny!: Everytime the joke in a video is an elderly person falling or getting hurt, or a child.
Rather grating to see a toddler run over their infant sibling, then have the audience laugh uproariously.
Heck you could say any time a video shows anyone getting hurt, which is most of the time.
One show had a musical montage of angry/crying small kids angrily shoving other small kids over, usually causing the other kids to cry. It was a bit jarring to hear the studio audience laughing at the clips.
There was one clip where a kid was crying because he had diarrhea, while the mom was just filming and laughing; only the family dog was being nice to the poor kid. The worst part? This won the $10,000 prize.
The clips with people vomiting are just cruel, the person is sick and they are being recorded and humiliated on tv while the audience just laughs
And another clip where a kid's parents give him a small cake for getting good grades, only for them to reveal it's actually a toilet paper roll covered in frosting. The child understandably cries his eyes out while his parents act like jerks, all while the audience is laughing.
To add insult to injury, all of the rights to these clips are owned by Vin Di Bona Productions, meaning that they can and do get reused in new episodes. Combine that with reruns and second-run syndication, and it becomes a textbook example of Never Live It Down for the people involved. Not funny, indeed.
Nausea Fuel: The Bergeron-era segments "The Naughty Files" and "A Moment of Ewwwww!" specifically showcase grosser clips than the producers were allowed to show before. Snot and vomit gags (usually via babies) have popped up elsewhere as well.
