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.

Best Show Ever!
27 October 2015 | by sarikamcwSee all my reviews

My husband and I have been watching this show for a number of weeks. It only got better with each episode. It holds your attention because it keeps moving from one exciting thing to another. We were so sad to hear that next week would be the last episode. It's one of the best variety shows I've ever seen, because it has magic, humor, good retro performers, audience participation and variety. Neil Patrick Harris is unbelievable in his quick changes, abilities, humor and talent. He has involved his son in the show. One of the best shows so far was when he celebrated his mother's birthday. He picks co- hosts from all different genres. Not only this, but you can watch it with your kids. I hope they bring this one back.
