#NBC announced today that #SteveHarvey will be replaced by Melissa McCarthy as host of the unscripted series “Little Big Shots.”
Steve has been hosting the show, which showcases young people with outstanding talents for the first three seasons, @foxnews reports.
“Melissa’s just an incredible performer and incredible comedian,” Paul Telegdy, NBC’s co-chairman of entertainment told reporters while announcing the news (via People). “She will bring a completely fresh perspective to it…Melissa is a strong creative force with her own ideas. Changes will be apparent.”
An exact date for the return of Little Big Shots with its new host has not yet been announced. This news that Steve will be replaced comes just days after the network officially announced that his daytime talk show “Steve” will end its run in June.
According to Variety, the writing was on the wall for “Steve” when NBC cut a deal with Kelly Clarkson for a one-hour talk-variety show.
“The Kelly Clarkson Show” is expected to launch in the fall and occupy the same prime daytime spot that Steve Harvey had.
“Steve” reportedly taped its final episode last week and will air originals all through June. If you’re a big fan of the show though, Steve will remain on the air in reruns through the month of September before Kelly Clarkson takes over.
If y’all worried about your weekly dose of Steve, he will stay on as the host of ABC’s “Family Feud” and of course, “Celebrity Family Feud.”
Although Steve has not directly addressed the changes to his shows, he tweeted a motivational thought shortly after news of Melissa McCarthy’s takeover broke.
“God has already lined up all the people in your path to get you to your dreams and your visions; all you have to do is get rid of the wrong ones,” Steve wrote Monday.
Representatives for Steve reportedly did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
