You recently confirmed your virtual audience participation for our taping of AMERICA’S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS on Friday January 16th . As we’re sure you have heard in your local and/or national news lately, the City of Los Angeles has been experiencing an astronomical surge in Covid-19 cases. If you haven’t heard, the most current statistics report that 1 in every 5 people being TESTED in Los Angeles, have been infected with the virus.
As a precautionary measure to address growing concerns about the spread of Covid-19, and even more specifically, by the new, 70% more contagious strain of the virus (first discovered in the UK) now being officially confirmed as being a present & current strain in the Los Angeles area itself. As such, Producers have decided to reschedule the January 16th taping date as a precautionary & preventative health measure for all of our staff & crew.
Please note, the decision to reschedule this date is simply to comply with the Director of Public Health for the County of Los Angeles' request for film & TV productions in the area to delay returning to work, after the Christmas holiday break, in an effort to help curb the city's growing surge of positive cases. No one on our show is infected. This is simply a precautionary decision.
The NEW taping date will be Friday January 29, 2021.
We will be taping 3 shows on that date and we would LOVE IT if you were still able to attend one of these rescheduled times.
SHOW 1: Friday January 29th 10:00am – 1:00pm (Los Angeles Time)
SHOW 2: Friday January 29th 1:30pm – 4:30pm (Los Angeles Time)
SHOW 3: Friday January 29th 4:30pm – 7:30pm (Los Angeles Time)
*All times, (and yes, even the date itself), are subject to change and/or be adjusted, but we are working hard to make sure that does not happen.
We know you were looking forward to participating in the show on the 16th and we were even more excited to have you join us, but in the safety & interest of all our crew, we know this is the right, and safe decision, to make at this time.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding. This has been a long, straining and emotionally challenging time for all of us.
We would still love the opportunity to make you laugh and would like to offer you the first opportunity to confirm your participation for our new rescheduled tape date on Friday January 29th.
If you can’t make it, we completely understand. Just select the "CANCEL" option below.
If you can still make it, please choose the show time that works best for you below and reconfirm now.
