NBC ex­ec­u­tives may be closing the cur­tain on Neil Pa­trick Har­ris’ up­com­ing va­ri­ety show, in the wake of his dis­as­trous turn host­ing the Os­cars. “NBC is con­sid­er­ing cut­ting some of the 10 episodes or can­celling the show al­to­gether, since it would be more of the singing, jokes and pranks that bombed at the Os­cars,” dishes a net­work in­sider. The rat­ings for this year’s Academy Awards were the worst since 2009—and Neil is tak­ing it per­son­ally. “I don’t know that my fam­ily nor my soul could take (host­ing again)”, he said. But the fall­out may not be over yet. “He’s re­ally de­pressed,” adds the in­sider. “He’s used to be­ing loved—if his new show is pulled from the sched­ule, it’ll break his heart.”
