1 vs. 100
Robert Lane "Bob" Saget (born May 17, 1956) is an American stand-up comedian, actor and television host. Although he is best known for his family-friendly roles as Danny Tanner in Full House and the original host of America's Funniest Home Videos, Saget is also known for his very vulgar stand-up routine. Since 2005, he has provided the voice of the future Ted Mosby on How I Met Your Mother.

America's Funniest Home Videos (often simply abbreviated to AFHV or its on-air abbreviation AFV) is an American reality television program on ABC in which viewers are able to submit humorous homemade videos. The most common videos usually feature slapstick physical comedy arising from incidents, accidents, and mishaps. Other popular videos include humorous situations involving pets or children, while some are staged practical jokes.
Originally airing as a special on November 26, 1989, it debuted as a regular weekly series on January 14, 1990. Initially, it was hosted by Bob Saget for the 1989 special and the show's first eight seasons, then by John Fugelsang and Daisy Fuentes for its ninth and tenth seasons. After two years of being shown as occasional specials, hosted by various actor/comedians such as D.L. Hughley and Richard Kind, ABC brought the series back on Friday nights in the summer of 2001 with new host Tom Bergeron, who has since become the series' longest-serving host. Season 23 ended on May 19, 2013.
America's Funniest People
"Rollin' with Saget" is a comedic rap song composed by Stu Stone & D-Sisive and featuring vocals from Jamie Kennedy & Stu Stone with Bob Saget. Much of its humor is derived from showing Saget in a profane and violent light (which actually corresponds with his stand-up act), as opposed to his most famous role, Danny Tanner, the squeaky clean father of three on the American sitcom Full House, or the wholesome host of America's Funniest Home Videos. Saget himself has since adopted it as a pseudo theme song, streaming it on his official website and playing during his stand-up acts.
America's Funniest People is an American reality series on ABC that debuted on May 1, 1990 as an hour-long special, and later as a weekly half-hour prime time series from September 8, 1990 to August 28, 1994. It was hosted by Dave Coulier and Arleen Sorkin from 1990 to 1992. Tawny Kitaen replaced Sorkin in 1992. The announcer was Ernie Anderson.

In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
