Neil Patrick Harris Will Host a Variety Show

TV legend and future Oscars host Neil Patrick Harris has another feather to add to his cap! Harris will host a 10-episode variety show for NBC, based on the UK's Saturday Night Takeaway. "As I watched the show, I couldn't stop smiling. Now that I've seen many seasons, my face hurts. It's a game changer," said Harris. "Nothing like this has been done before, and its unique structure fits right into my random skill set. I can't wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun!" After hosting the Tonys and the Emmys for several years, Harris is a natural when it comes to this kind of stuff. I have no doubt he can pull it off! Stay tuned for a premiere date.
