Storyline

Place a multi-threat performer, a variety show, a game show and a talk show into a blender, turn it on, and the resulting mixture is "Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris". With the help of a different celebrity announcer every week, his regular stable of sidekicks and other celebrity friends, NPH kvetches with, plays games with and pranks studio audience members, at home viewers, and even unsuspecting people going about their regular business who have no idea that they will be on the show. He challenges his several celebrity friends to races and games, often of an extreme nature. And each show ends with a production number appropriately called the end of the show show.

Valiant effort, but it left me wanting.
4 November 2015 | by lenon1122See all my reviews

Considering the fact that I love variety shows, game shows, and Neil Patrick Harris, I hoped this show would blow me away. Unfortunately, the production glitches, loose timing, mediocre jokes, and seemingly haphazard, over choreographed/produced, and rushed production, was the major flaw in this, yet still savable show.

I feel if he had/would go in more of a variety direction, with skits, reminiscent of Carol Burnett, with the game show segments taking a back seat to the entertainment, he would have a sure-fire hit on his hands. Currently, the games seem to make the show drag painfully along, between "almost great" performances.

Or, take it the direction of the long-running, German show "Wetten Das" where celebrity guests come on for interviews, sketches, etc, whilst simultaneously have contestants perform zany stunts for prizes, and cash, which are checked on throughout the show; sort of like two shows in one.

Hopefully, next season will bring about some changes, as this show definitely has potential, and Mr. Harris does a fantastic job at hosting it, however this show, is in need of some major tweaking.
