officially axed after one so-so season.
Funny thing: the show really didn't get such bad numbers, at least by current shriveled broadcast standards. But Best Time Ever was allegedly expensive to produce because of all the live action, and NBC execs had to prove that they could cancel something. Otherwise, why have any NBC execs at all? (I'm just kidding, sort of.)
I thought the show was a mix of okay stuff and bad stuff. The game show segments were all right. They went by quickly and didn't embarrass anybody. But the celebrity prank segments were godawful. They dragged on forever and looked phony as a faked orgasm. The song and dance segments were run of the mill, not terrible, not great.
I don't know if Harris was the right choice for host. Maybe somebody with more mainstream appeal might have made everything work better. Was Steve Harvey too busy? (I am kidding about that.)
