Will Steve Harvey be saying goodbye to the talk show world once Kelly Clarkson's talk show takes over in the fall? He implied as much on Wednesday at the Variety Entertainment Summit.
The 61-year-old comedian, a headline speaker at the event, said he didn't know if he was going to stay at NBC once Clarkson and her much talked-about talk show arrived.
“I thought I was, until they made an announcement a couple weeks ago that they wanted to give Kelly Clarkson the owned-and-operated NBC networks — that’s my slot," Harvey said. "I don't know if it sold, it's not selling like they thought, but I thought it would have been nice of them to come to me — as the only dude who’s survived [in daytime TV] for seven years — about it."
“So when you do that, I gotta make announcements too,” he continued. “ ... I'm working. It will be something real cute.”
The Family Feud host hinted that he's not happy with the way things were handled regarding the future of his show.
"You know, I'm an honorable guy," he said. "I'm just an old school guy, and I just thought that you're supposed to just talk to people and just go, 'Look, you've been good business for us. This is what we're thinking of doing, are you OK with that?' No, you just don't put something in the paper and say, 'I'm just going to make this move right here,' because it's crazy."
