Neil Patrick Harris: 'I'm Proud Of Tv Show Despite Cancellation'


Neil Patrick Harris Nicole Scherzinger

The former How I Met Your Mother star returned to TV to front and executive produce the live variety show, which was inspired by British programme Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and featured sketches, stunts, pranks and performances.

The first season premiered in September (15) and consisted of eight episodes, but it has now been cancelled in a mutual decision between Harris and executives at the NBC network.

Neil Patrick Harris David Burtka

Neil Patrick Harris thinks he comes across as the ''bad cop'' when he disciplines his children.

The 42-year-old actor believes he is a lot more strict on his four-year-old fraternal twins Gideon and Harper, who were born via a surrogate mother, than his husband David Burtka, whom he married in 2014 following a decade of dating.

Speaking to PEOPLE.com, the former 'Big Bang Theory' star said he's the ''bad cop when it comes to disciplining the kids'' and believes his parenting style is similar to a ''camp counsellor'' rather than a ''maternal nurturer.''
