Watch Best Week Ever
- 8 Seasons
While there are a number of TV shows that cover celebrity gossip and pop culture, VH1's Best Week Ever takes a unique approach to the subject by having c-level celebrities and stand-up comedians offer their take on the hot stories of the week. The show's tagline is, "It's everything you love, everything you missed, and all the stuff you need to see again" which gives a pretty good indication of the show's format. The typical episode would include some hot viral clips, footage of celebrity screw-ups and a few off-the-beaten track entertainment stories. All of that was interspersed with snarky comments from the comedians, most of the time targeting the celebrity for most of their mocking. The show began in 2004 and had a revolving cast of "hosts," but in 2008 comedian Paul F. Thompkins became the sole host. His job was to recount the week's best events and set up the segments for the comedians. Some of the regular segments on the show included Doug Bensons's "Eight Words or Less," in which the comedian reviewed hit movies in only eight words.
