Neil Patrick Harris hopes to become the next Ed Sullivan as he is now preparing to host a new variety show on NBC.
The How I Met Your Mother star will host the American version of the long-running British variety show “Saturday Night Takeaway”. The name for the new show has yet to be released, however it’s been confirmed that it will not use the name of the U.K. show and will, most likely, air sometime during the week as opposed to Saturday nights.
N.P.H. is very excited to be on board with the United States. adaptation, saying, “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.
“Nothing like this has been done before, and it’s unique structure fits right into my random skill set. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun!”
The television shows reportedly will run for ten installments in its first season, which is set to make its debut in February 2015.
If anybody can pull this off my money is on N.P.H. so I wish him the best of luck.
