This week The Emperor of Awesome – Neil Patrick Harris – is guest hosting at the newly named Live! With Kelly now that Regis has retired. Of course I have set my DVR for the week and can say that spending an hour a day with NPH has already brightened up my week and it’s only Monday!
First off – he’s so dapper and charming and he’s a very enthusiastic host and as comfortable in that chair as if he’s sat there for years. He also boogies with guests, gives birthday winks (with sound effects!) and even delivers “manly news” about things like the basketball lockout (or whatever it was, I don’t care about manly news) being over.
AND apparently if I had my own talk show I could totally have NPH and his “better half” David over for Thanksgiving dinner like Kelly did – where they A. Bring fantastic gifts B. Do magic shows that terrify Mark Consuelos and C. Have dance parties in the kitchen!!!
You can watch the “host chat” here and enjoy him being Awesome with Elmo on Sesame Street:
