>• As the ABC goof-fest turns 20, its host for the last 8 years (who moonlights on Dancing with the Stars), 54, looks back on some of his favorite moments.
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT'S BEEN 20 YEARS?
My wife and I call it the annuity. If someone came up and said, "You're going to host a show where people get hit [in a delicate area] every week"... it's fairly unlikely.
WHICH HOME VIDEO CAN YOU WATCH AGAIN AND AGAIN?
Skydiving grandma. She was just out of the plane and the wind current took her teeth out.
A son was being dragged by a self-propelled lawn mower to the woods. As he's yelling, "Help me!" Mom was on the back of the deck going, "You've got to see this!" Makes you wonder when the parental instincts kick in.
LIKE FUNNIEST, DANCING HAS ALSO ENDURED
I love variety television and there's hardly any of it. It's fun to see people out of their element. And [Dancing] is a lot of sexy people spray-tanned within an inch of their lives.
