What he has no­ticed is just like his first clip show, there is no short­age of peo­ple will­ing to share videos of them­selves do­ing em­bar­rass­ing things. There’s a small fee paid to those who have their videos used, but un­like “Amer­ica’s Fun­ni­est Home Videos,” there is no con­test to de­ter­mine a big money win­ner.

Plus, he wants the se­ries to feel more like a late-night va­ri­ety show. Guest star­ring on the first show is Dave Koz, who jok­ingly told Saget what he con­trib­utes to the pro­gram “is a low point in his ca­reer.”

The work Saget does doesn’t stop there. He also wrote and per­forms the theme song for the new se­ries.

He has been able to han­dle so many parts of “Videos Af­ter Dark” be­cause of all the work the Penn­syl­va­nia na­tive has done over the past 40 years. His wide range of work in­cludes be­ing a Grammy nom­i­nee for Best Com­edy Album in 2013. Saget’s other act­ing cred­its range from the film
