"AMERICA'S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS"
"Episode No. 1502" - Summer may be over, but the memories linger with a montage of clips featuring summer trouble, set to Outkast's hit song, "Hey Ya": teens make a fool out of their friend with a practical joke; a little boy helps mom out by doing the dishes . . . and giving them a spit shine; and the phrase 'catch of the day' takes on a whole new meaning when a man discovers a live opossum in his barbeque grill, on "America's Funniest Home Videos," SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3 (7:00-8:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. Tom Bergeron hosts.
