The hour-long series is being made by Jukin Media and Dick Clark Productions (DCP) and will debut on Fox on January 16.

“Like everyone else, I find myself watching these viral videos with my kids and cracking up at the hysterical fails from around globe,” said Crews in a statement.

On World’s Funniest Fails, he will preside over a panel of celebrities and comedians who will analyze the hottest viral video fails and choose one as “Fail of the Week.” Panelists will be announced soon, the broadcaster said.

Crews also co-stars in the Fox series Brooklyn Nine Nine (pictured) and hosts the syndicated game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
