NBC's Neil Patrick Harris variety show has a name

Posted on

NBC

In advance of next week’s upfronts, NBC has announced the name of Neil Patrick Harris’ variety show—and it might remind you of How I Met Your Mother.

Vulture reports that Harris’ hour-long series, coming this fall, will be called Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris. Inspired by British variety show Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, the series “will feature comedy sketches, musical numbers, mini game shows, hidden camera pranks on celebrities and appearances by A-list stars.” Does that name have anyone else singing Marshall Eriksen’s “Best Night Ever”?

NBC first teased Harris’ show with a quick 15-second promo in January.
