“As you have heard, the world lost a legend this week. And AFV lost a family member,” Robeiro began. “Bob Saget is synonymous with AFV to this day. This show would not have been the same without his unique sense of humor. “
“It has been my honor to continue to carry the torch Bob so brightly lit,” he added, before getting viewers to “Take a look back at Bob being Bob” in a rock roll. Highlights included hitting the set, playing with a monkey and opening up to Tom Bergeron to come up with voiceovers for the fun footage.

“Now pretty much the world has heard of Bob Saget’s passing away on Sunday morning,” it read. “Bob was the backbone of a TV show that has entertained not only America but the whole world.
