Steve Harvey is having a rough year.
After his show ‘Steve’ was officially cancelled earlier this week and his time slot was given to Kelly Clarkson’s new variety talk show, it’s being reported that Steve is being replaced at one of his other jobs as well.
Melissa McCarthy will take Steve’s place as host of Little Big Shots.
“Melissa’s just an incredible performer and incredible comedian,” NBC’s co-chairman of entertainment Paul Telegdy said in a statement, adding that the mother of two, 48, “will bring a completely fresh perspective to it.”
“Melissa is a strong creative force with her own ideas. Changes will be apparent,” Telegdy added.
Although an exact date for the series’ return has not been announced, the show will begin airing again at 8 p.m. on Sunday nights after the end of football season next winter.
