Word around the ‘net is that VH-1’s Best Week Ever is apparently off the air until 2010 and may not even come back then. I’m not surprised to hear this one bit. I loved the show so much in the beginning when it had a bigger range of people commenting on the week’s happenings.
But then they decided to revamp it and make Paul F. Tompkins the focus of the show, and it all went downhill from there. Nothing personal against him, I’m sure he’s a nice guy and all, but I really don’t find him all that funny and this particular format just lead to a real rip-off of The Soup. This is the perfect example of taking a show that was not broken and deciding to fix it anyway.
Why, why do networks insist on making unnecessary changes to something that actually works perfectly? Is it too hard to leave well enough alone? If it really does come back next year, let’s hope they revamp back to the way it was originally.
