Steve Harvey has also lost his talk show "Steve" which will not be renewed by NBC.
NBC announced that Melissa McCarthy will replace Steve Harvey as host of its unscripted series “Little Big Shots.”
Harvey will be replaced by the Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated star after hosting the show for its first three seasons. In it, young people with outstanding talents showcase what they can do and interact with the host in a comedic way.
“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,” Telegdy added.
