Like the title says, this series is filled with shocking video clips, and they're counted down from 20 in each episode to reveal the most outrageous one of all. "Whackos at the Wheel," "Worst Days on the Job" and "Escapes From Death" are just three of the featured episodes, enough to give you an inkling as to what's contained here.
Comics April Richardson and Chris Fairbanks host this half-hour series that applauds (wink, wink) how hard some people, places and things try to succeed despite ultimately failing. Actors, comedians and improvisation artists are digitally inserted into viral videos to comment on and congratulate people for being brave and ingenious in coming oh so close to victory. But, claims truTV, " `Almost Genius' doesn't mock, because as everyone knows, almost is awesome... and genius."
"truTV Top Funniest" is a countdown show of outrageous videos filmed in the U.S. Viral clips, home movies, pranks, surveillance videos, event footage and news bloopers are all part of the side-splitting action. Each episode features a different theme, like "Funny Fails" and "Ridiculous Moments."
Producer Bruce Nash ("Most Shocking") is behind this adrenaline-fueled series that features civilians and law enforcement officers in risky, selfless rescue missions. Each one-hour episode presents an account of a rescue effort from the dual perspectives of hero and victim.
Crotch kicks, anyone? Amateur videographers in the U.S. submit ones of their kids, pets, friends and families in funny situations -- often embarrassing -- with the hope of winning thousands in prize money. Each week, the studio audience determines a winner by voting for the one they find most-hilarious. At the end of the season, weekly winners compete for the grand prize. Actor -- and "Dancing With the Stars" Season 19 champion -- Alfonso Ribeiro serves as the host, and Vin Di Bona is the executive producer.
Viewers get to ride along with a team of highly-trained professionals from California's San Fernando Valley as they repossess cars ... no matter how angry the owners may get. The stories depicted are based on real events.
A high-stakes bar competition with a twist.
Florida's South Beach area of Miami is a major tourist destination at certain times of the year, especially during spring break. This can present a problem: not enough parking spots. That's when Robert Ashenoff Sr. steps in. He's the affable-but-tough manager of Tremont Towing, which specializes in towing cars that are parked illegally. Helping Robert out at the million-dollar business are his son and daughter, along with a trio of skilled drivers. Each person at the company has a unique personality, which can make for an interesting time in the shop.
It's just a job to Ron and Amy Shirley; it's not who they are. But try telling that to the people who unwillingly do "business" with the Shirleys, the proprietors of Lizard Lick Towing & Recovery in Wendell, N.C. This series follows all the action as Ron and his right-hand man, recovery agent Bobby Brantley, track down and repossess vehicles and machinery, while Amy deals with the irate property owners at the Lizard Lick headquarters. Yes, the Shirleys do a lot of taking during the week, but they also frequently give back by helping local folks who have fallen on hard times. Each year, for example, the Lizard Lick crew prepares a massive barbecue dinner for the people whose property was repossessed by the company.
This hidden-camera series follows four lifelong friends -- Brian "Q" Quinn, James "Murr" Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano -- who take dares to an outrageous level.
