Which 'Full House' star should host 'America's Funniest Home Videos'?

Tom Bergeron is stepping down as host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, leaving the coveted spot open (hey, it’s about as steady as a showbiz job gets). When thinking of who should replace him, our minds immediately went to Bob Saget, who hosted the show from 1989 to 1997, but then we thought: What if every Full House star — not just Danny Tanner — was eligible for the position? After all, this has already been the year of Full House reunions with Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier’s multiple TV appearances together and the upcoming Candace Cameron Bure/Scott Weinger guest spots on The Neighbors.

To further this recent wave of Full House nostalgia, here’s our evaluation of the host abilities of each Tanner (and honorary Tanner): READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Tom Bergeron on Dance Duel difficulties, getting bleeped, and the everlasting glory of EW's hidden gems -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

We’re getting down to the liiiiiiiiiiiiiive wire of Dancing With the Stars — just two weeks left before William Levy, Maria Menounos, Donald Driver, or Katherine Jenkins wins the coveted mirrorball trophy! I sat down with host/zen master Tom Bergeron after Tuesday’s double elimination results show to go over season 14.

How has the Dance Duel made Tom’s job more difficult — and should we cut cohost Brooke Burke some slack for always asking contestants “How do you feel?” Where does ABC get off airing two shows with “bitch” in the title, then bleeping out Tom when he decides to fire off a “B”? Did Maks get a horrible edit this ****ing season? Will Donald ever get that 10 from Len? Has William Levy’s uber-hotness made Tom partially deaf?

Watch below — and be sure to stick around ’til the end for Tom’s special shout-out to EW.com’s hidden gem-hunting community.


'Dancing With the Stars' cast announcement is coming! Which ballroom section do you miss most?

Unless you’ve spent the offseason under a rock searching for hidden gems, you know that Dancing With the Stars hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke will announce the season 14 cast on Tuesday’s Good Morning America (ABC, 8 a.m. ET). I know who they are — fringe fairies know everything — but I’m not allowed to tell or they’ll revoke my mining privileges. I’ll give you a clue: There might be an athlete! Just kidding just kidding just kidding — they never have athletes.

Look for the official cast announcement on EW.com tomorrow; in the meantime here are….

'The Host's Leaderboard': Tom Bergeron scores 'Dancing With the Stars' season 12 overall, claims Maks will never grab his ass again

Uh oh. The chances of Maksim Chmerkovskiy(‘s ass) returning to Planet Mirrorballus for season 13 of Dancing With the Stars are looking slimmer by the minute — much like his dance partner! — now that ultimate hidden gem Tom Bergeron predicts Maks’ signature love/light sexual harrassment pats will come to a screeching halt.

If Maks leaves the dance floor, who will keep Tom on his pleasantly surprised/perhaps mildly annoyed twinkletoes now? A DANCMSTR nation weeps. READ FULL STORY

'America's Funniest Home Videos': Who should win this year's grand prize? Plus, exclusive clips of kids falling off chairs and toilets!


Some TV shows wrap up their season by dangling a big question, leaving you hanging for months. But not America’s Funniest Home Videos. Tonight at 7 p.m. ET/PT, that other Tom Bergeron-hosted ABC series will provide closure to season 21 (21!))  by revealing which of the three $100,000-winning clips has claimed the show’s grand prize, a package of Disney vacations. (Then again, how bizarre would it be if just once, AFV left us on a cliffhanger — a cliphanger, if you will — and we didn’t find out whether a golf ball jacked some dude in the head, gut, or groin for many moons?) Review the trio of finalists below and then select one as this season’s champion in our poll. Which video did I choose, you were about to ask? While that poodle displayed impressive comic timing in shame-backing out of the hallway, the clip of the little boy who freaks out when he loses his video camera in the snow warmed my cold heart while managing to tell a full story in zero-visibility conditions.
