FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 17, 1996

Two All-New Television Series

"WORLD'S FUNNIEST VIDEOS" and "SECOND NOAH"

Premiere on CHCH-TV

CHCH-TV is pleased to announce the acquisition of World's Funniest Videos, premiering Thursday, February 1, 1996 (8:00- 8:30 p.m.), and Second Noah, debuting Monday, February 5, 1996 (8:00 - 9:00 p.m.).

From the producers of the hit series, America's Funniest Home Videos, comes the World's Funniest Videos, hosted by Dave Coulier (Full House) and Eva La Rue (All My Children). This new television series, shot on location at Florida's Epcot Center before a live audience at an outdoor amphitheatre, will feature never-before-seen videos sent from viewers from around the world. Airing weekly, World's Funniest Videos premieres Thursday, February 1, 1996, at 8:00 p.m., simulcast/ABC.

Second Noah, starring Daniel Hugh Kelly (Hardcastle and McCormick), Betsy Brantley (Tour of Duty, Havana), Deidre O'Connell (Sirens, Leaving Normal) and Jimmy Marsden (The Nanny, Ambush in Waco), is about the extraordinary Beckett family.

Noah Beckett (Kelly), a famous Tampa University basketball coach and writer, has put his life on hold to raise their six adopted children, ranging in age from a three-year-old baby to a girl crazy teen, and their 40 pets, which include ferrets, iguanas and a pot-bellied pig. Meanwhile, his wife, Jesse (Brantley), has her hands full as the Florida Zoo's veterinarian.

However, despite their eclectic home setting, the Becketts always seem to have room for one more, which is what a homeless 17-year-old girl counts on when she abandons her brother at the zoo. As hoped, the Becketts take the boy in, and eventually, his lonesome sister, too.

Add to the household an abrasive, gregarious, take-charge kind of woman (O'Connell), who answers the Beckett's ad to become their tenth housekeeper, and viewers get a new kind of loving family who can handle almost anything. Second Noah premieres Monday, February 5, 1996, at 8:00 p.m. on CHCH-TV, simulcast/ABC.
