NBC has pulled the plug on Steve Harvey’s daytime talk show, Steve. The final episode will air this June, which was recorded this past Thursday.
Variety reports the end of the show will mark a new era for NBC who will be bringing in Kelly Clarkson for a new talk-variety hour that will arrive this fall. The Kelly Clarkson Show will take over the prime daytime slots that will be vacated by Harvey’s show.
For fans of Harvey’s show, rerun episodes of Steve will run through September before it is replaced.
The report also states the possibility of Steve being cancelled due to issues between NBCUniversal and IMG Original Content, which took over the show two seasons ago.
The current show is the second edition of Harvey’s broadcast, the first was titled The Steve Harvey Show and was co-produced by Endemol Shine North America and NBCUniversal. That series started in 2012.
Steve currently is in fifth in viewership of current syndicated talk shows. The series trails Dr. Phil, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Live with Kelly and Ryan and Maury. Steve averages 1.8 million viewers a week.
