Nick at Nite Adds Two Hit Comedies: George Lopez to Join the Lineup This Fall; YouTube Predecessor America's Funniest Home Videos, Hosted By Bob Saget, to Premiere Monday, April 30

New Series Will Join Previously Announced Home Improvement, as well as Hits Roseanne, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and The Cosby Show

NEW YORK, March 8 -- Nick at Nite has acquired two new hit comedy series - George Lopez and the show that began the user-generated content phenomenon, America's Funniest Home Videos, it was announced today by Tom Ascheim, Executive Vice President, General Manager, Nickelodeon Television. The network will roll out 111 half-hour episodes and two, one-hour specials of America's Funniest Home Videos beginning Monday, April 30 at 8:30 PM (ET/PT). The reality comedy hosted by Bob Saget (1990-97) features viewers' wacky candid videos, as Saget (Full House) does double-duty on Nick at Nite. In addition, the network has purchased all 120 episodes of George Lopez which will premiere Fall 2007 during Hispanic Heritage Month.

"Both series are huge favorites with families and are perfect for our audience. Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite is a pioneer of sharing 'user-generated content' with viewers, and America's Funniest Home Videos fit the 'UGC' definition before the term existed," said Ascheim. "George Lopez is one of America's funniest comedians, and he and his TV family connect with all ages and ethnicities."

The two new series join the Nick at Nite lineup of comedies, which will include Home Improvement, the recently added Growing Pains, the Emmy(TM) Award-winning series The Cosby Show, Full House, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Roseanne.

George Lopez debuted on ABC in 2002 and is now in its sixth season. Stand-up comedian George Lopez (Bread and Roses, Resurrection Blvd.) stars as the first guy to be promoted from the assembly line to plant manager at a Los Angeles airplane-parts factory. George's life at work and home never gets dull, thanks to his hilariously stubborn mother Benny (Belita Moreno), his pal Ernie (Valente Rodriguez) and his devoted wife Angie (Constance Marie) and kids. Their dyslexic son Max (Luis Armand Garcia) is a ball of energy, while daughter Carmen (Masiela Lusha) struggles to assert her own independence and conquer high school hurdles. George is further tested daily by the arrival of his newly divorced father-in-law Vic (Emiliano Diez). The executive producers of The Drew Carey Show - Bruce Helford, Academy Award(R) winner Deborah Oppenheimer and Robert Borden - team up with superstar actress/producer Sandra Bullock (Miss Congeniality, 28 Days, Speed) for this comedy loosely based on Lopez's own experiences as a Mexican-American native of Los Angeles. George Lopez is produced by Fortis Films, Mohawk Productions, Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television. Lopez, David A. Caplan, Paul A. Kaplan and Mark Torgove serve as executive producers.

America's Funniest Home Videos premiered on ABC on January 14, 1990. Bob Saget served as host for eight seasons of the timeless American TV institution (1990-1997). Each episode features hilarious home videos that capture unexpected mishaps, practical jokes, embarrassing moments, animal acts and more. Bob Saget lends his extraordinary charisma and sense of humor, tying clips together in a style all his own. He has a humorous way of interacting with the audience and his voiceovers are truly memorable. Now in its 17th season, America's Funniest Home Videos continues to entertain audiences nationwide. America's Funniest Home Videos is the longest-running entertainment program on ABC. It is produced by Vin Di Bona Productions and is distributed by Disney's Buena Vista Television.
