Transcript for Alfonso Ribeiro Talks Family, 'America's Funniest Home Videos'
Let talk about what you have going on. You're a busy man. I've got two series, my, you know, "America's funniest home videos" our season premiere. We love it. Repremier this Sunday on ABC at 7:00, 6:00 central. I feel like this season is a complete upgrade from last year. Especially for me, as a host. I felt like -- Why? I looked at the season last year and wept, wow. I'm kind of like, my energy is all over the place. I felt like, because we do the voiceovers separately than we do the actual on-camera stuff. I decided I need to make this one tone and make it feel like I'm talking to somebody at home and less about talking to the studio audience. Let's take a look. This is a bit. Ooh. Yeah. You're pregnant! Oh bhp blp I thought it was a lip gloss. I had no idea. I think the only way to elevate that clip is if she would have actually used it like lip gloss. That would have been just real nasty. Oh, my god. Oh, my god, thank you. Oh. Yes. And then I also have -- my other show, unwrapped 2.0 on the cooking channel. Premieres October 9th. Sundays at 9:00 eastern. That show is about treats. We show how treats are made all the way from ingredients to sending them off. A tootsie roll. A cake. Or chips. Or -- all the way through. You learn a lot about how it's all made. All the different stuff. What I really love is the machines they have to make to get the stuff to go through. So, they'll make this new contraption to take the thing from a big log to like this. We remember you from "Fresh prince." It all began with Carlton. Is it true you almost didn't get that gig? Yeah. I originally got it. I got the role, and then the -- incoming president of Warren Littlefield didn't want me to do it after the pilot. They tried to recast and went through the entire recasting process and the executive producers and will were like, no, we think he's the guy. They had to let him go through his process. They ended up not finding anybody. And then, like, six weeks into the series, he came over and was like, you know what, I gotta say, I'm sorry I put you through that. And the rest is history.
