Neil Patrick Harris has had hit TV shows on both ABC (Doogie Howser, MD) and CBS (How I Met Your Mother). Now, he’s headlining a live show on NBC. Will it be a ratings success as well or will it fizzle? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned!
On Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris, it seems like anything can happen. This live one-hour show features appearances by A-list stars, stunts, comedy skits, musical performances, mini game shows, audience giveaways, and hidden camera pranks. Harris is assisted by a mini-version of himself (Nathaniel Motulsky) and sassy Nicole Scherzinger.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

What do you think? Do you like the Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris TV series? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
Best Time Ever, renewed
I love this show and want to see more! I can’t wait to see next season.
I don’t think a show has ever truly made me happier when I watched it, until BTE. The vaudevillian style and high energy and positivity.. it makes me wish variety shows were a thing in my lifetime. I hope it runs for a long while.
I love NPH, but this show is dumb. It feels really forced, the lip-synching thing is not funny or fun, and the “end of the show show” is a waste of time.
You’re better than this, Neil.
This is the absolute dumbest show EVER and the fact that anyone watches it is evidence that our nation is behind the rest of the world in education. I hope they cancel this debacle
Please dont cancel BEST TIME EVER. Because WE HAD THE BEST TIME EEEEVVVVEEERRR
We really like this show!
yes, renew for 2nd season. NPH is the most engaging, game for anything, host of a prime time. More candid camera ‘gotchas,’ please.
