Even though Steve Harvey’s talk show “Steve” might’ve been canceled recently, and he was replaced by Melissa McCarthy on the series “Little Big Shots,” his fans said they’ll support him wherever he lands.
It was something they conveyed underneath the last Instagram post that Harvey shared. In fact, it’s the same post that shows the 62-year-old telling one of his audience members to pursue his passion for cooking.
“Wherever you go I’m going to keep up with you,” someone wrote.
“Please start a podcast ❤️❤️❤️,” another person requested.
“I so love your positive attitude. But I just want you to know I will really miss your show!😢😢😢😭😭😭😭 I hope another network picks it up! YOU ARE AWESOME,” a third person let him know.
And there were some folks who said that Harvey had nothing to worry about, based on his overall talent and sense of humor.
“He will ALWAYS have the gift to turn things around and make people laugh. #Blessings on your next Journey Steve,” wrote one of his fans.
Reports that “Steve” might’ve been ending began in January of this year when Harvey opened up about learning that Kelly Clarkson‘s “The Kelly Clarkson Show” would be taking his time slot in many markets. The comedian and “Family Feud” host said he was completely blindsided by the move, and he slammed NBC for not keeping him in the loop.
“I thought I was [returning with ‘Steve’] until they made an announcement a couple weeks ago that they wanted to give Kelly Clarkson the owned and operated NBC Networks, and that’s my slot,” he said at Variety’s Entertainment Summit at CES.
“I thought it would’ve been nice of them to come to me — as being the only dude that’s survived [in daytime TV] for them for seven years — and say, ‘Steve, we’re thinking about doing this,’” he added. “But no, they just made an announcement. So when you do that, I gotta make announcements, too.”
