2019 brought Steve Harvey two very publicized L’s when he lost not one, but two NBC hosting gigs in one week – his critically acclaimed daytime talk show and ‘Little Big Shots’ (click here to read more).
2020, on the other hand, will bring the comedian’s longtime fans a new reason to smile as he’s officially announced the revival of the former.
Steve Harvey is bringing back his daytime talk show — but this time, he’s going the streaming route, sealing a deal for a new series at Facebook Watch. The new show, titled “Steve on Watch…’
Harvey has already taped the first batch of new episodes for his revived show, shooting new segments in Atlanta between Dec. 3 and Dec. 6 at the Tyler Perry Studios. According to Facebook, the first batch of episodes will run for 10 weeks, with multiple segments a week.
Speaking on the venture via an official statement, Harvey relayed:
“Reaching my audience anywhere and everywhere they are has always been the goal,” Harvey said. “Facebook Watch viewers are the most energetic, engaged community, and so are my amazing fans. Getting all those people to directly engage on a platform like this is the perfect evolution of the show.”
Set to rival Jada Pinkett Smith‘s wildly popular series, ‘Red Table Talk,’ ‘Steve on Watch’ will premiere January 6th.
