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.

Uneventful and boring.
29 September 2015 | by warblerluvrSee all my reviews

Not so much the best show ever at all. I think it is mediocre at best.

For starters, I did not want to watch the show because I had a feeling it was going to be lackluster and boring.

My husband wanted to watch it, so I had to record my show so he could watch.

My husband and I were bored throughout the whole show. The only reason he kept watching is in hopes at least "SOMETHING" halfway entertaining would happen.

I got out my phone after 10-15 minutes and played a game I was so bored but he still insisted on finish watching "just in case" it might get better.

I don't recall that we even laughed once throughout the show.

Thankfully my husband said he didn't need to watch it again.

Yay!
