'Best Week Ever' Is Coming Back To VH1


"Best Week Ever" is making a comeback on VH1.

After a three-year hiatus, the audience favorite -- which recounted the week's pop culture and celebrity happenings from 2004 to 2009 -- will return to anchor VH1's new Friday night Humor Block.

"This is exactly the right moment to bring back this iconic show," said Jeff Olde, VH1's executive vice president of original programming and production, at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Friday. "We'll update this series for today's social-media-charged world for a bester 'Best Week Ever.'"

"Best Week Ever" is coming back with a new look in January 2013, examining all that was good, bad and "so-bad-it-was-awesome" in the world of pop culture news and gossip. Funny talking heads (the show's first incarnation included Jessica St. Clair, Rachael Harris and Paul Scheer) will discuss celebrities' lives and the crazy "I-can't-believe-they-did-that" moments on the Internet. The series will also have include a new social media aspect.

The show will be coupled with additional series including the new pop culture nostalgia series "Miss You Much," hosted by Catherine Reitman.
