LOS ANGELES, Nov. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- America's Funniest Home Videos, (AFV) having entertained generations of television viewers for 25 years, established itself as a social media juggernaut when the show's Facebook page recently reached a milestone 10 million subscribers.
To celebrate the event and thank their fans, AFV has created "10 Million For 10 Million," a six-hour compilation of 10 million dollars worth of winning video clips; from the show's very first fainting groom to last season's $100,000 grand-prize-winning defiant toddler. "10 Million For 10 Million," the ultimate cat, dog, kid, and of course, groin hit videos are waiting at www.afv.com/10-million.
AFV is the fastest growing television show on Facebook. It has the third largest group of Facebook fans of all ABC shows behind Grey's Anatomy and Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family) and surpasses Modern Family and Dancing With The Stars. AFV also consistently ranks as the number one Most Talked About TV Show on Facebook.
"AFV's devoted and engaged Facebook fans depend on us to bring them a daily or even hourly laugh," says Vin Di Bona, the show's creator and executive producer. "Who doesn't want a belly laugh to get them through their day? We've got one billion engaging fans looking to us for laughs every month."
AFV continues to successfully expand its outreach to fans through many other platforms. A recent collaboration with Vine supported an AFV episode where host Alfonso Ribeiro performed his infamous "Carlton" dance. Viners were challenged to submit videos of their own dance and Vine created a pop-up channel to run them. The AFV Official channel on YouTube and spin-offs AFV Animals and AFV Kids, contribute to the reason that, on any given day, about one percent of the U.S. population is talking about America's Funniest Home Videos on social media.
