Dedicated to expanding its network and channel brands across multiple platforms and connecting viewers with their favorite shows anytime and anywhere, Disney-ABC Television Group�s ABC.com will launch a new expanded site for the popular series �America�s Funniest Home Videos,� allowing users to upload their own personal home videos, it was announced today by Anne Sweeney, co-chair, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney-ABC Television Group, at The Walt Disney Company�s 2007 Investor Conference.

��America�s Funniest Home Videos� was the original pioneer in user-generated content when it premiered on ABC 17 years ago, and it makes perfect sense for us to build out the series� profile online to create a community that gives users a chance to showcase their own creativity and connect with others,� said Ms. Sweeney. �We are thrilled to be working together with Vin Di Bona and his team to offer fans of the show and fans of user-generated content in general a rich, robust experience at ABC.com.�

�Our goal is to make the �America�s Funniest Home Videos� website the most fun, family-friendly site on this planet,� said Vin Di Bona, executive producer of the series.

Beginning this summer, viewers will be able to share their favorite footage of pi�ata whacks gone wrong, comic cats and dogs, amusement park screamers, amusing baby antics and hilarious wedding mishaps online at ABC.com. Visitors to the website will be able to comment and vote on their favorites. Videos receiving the most votes will be prominently featured on the site and could potentially be included in the television series.

A search function on the site will enable users to seek out videos they wish to view by popularity and by specific category. Additionally, a robust library of videos previously featured in the series will also be available for online viewing.

In its 17 seasons to date, �America�s Funniest Home Videos� has given away over $9 million in prize money and evaluated more than half a million videotapes from home viewers. �America�s Funniest Home Videos� is the #1 rated program in its hour (Sundays, 7:00-8:00 p.m.) among Adults 18-34, Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11.
