NBC Cancels ‘Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris’


NBC has decided not to move forward with Neil Patrick Harris’s live variety show Best Time Ever. According to Variety, the network has officially canceled the series, which wrapped up its eight-episode run in November. This won’t be the end of Harris at NBC, though, because Variety reports that instead of reworking Best Time Ever’s format, Harris and NBC “decided it made more sense to start from scratch with a new project.” Said NBC exec Paul Telegdy: “We are extremely proud of the work Neil and the producers did on Best Time Ever. People rewarded us for taking the risk of trying something different. It was an incredibly complicated and sophisticated form of television to put on a live show on a weekly basis. We’re proud of Neil for giving it his all and we have steely resolve to work together on something new.”
