Way back in January, we let you know that Steve Harvey, one of the “Original Kings of Comedy” scored the job as the new host of Family Feud. Well, yesterday, he officially began his reign, replacing former host John O’Hurley.
“There is no funnier game show on TV. We’ve done some pretty incredible stuff so far,” Harvey told the Associated Press.
Pretty incredible stuff indeed, as he continues to perform his stand-up nationally and host a nationally syndicated radio program in addition to the new hosting gig.
When asked if he would bring his own family on the show, Harvey jokingly replied, “No, I cannot expose my family on national TV. There’s some ignorance that would come out of the mouths of my family that I might never recover from.”
Contestants on the Feud attempt to guess the most popular answers to national survey questions.
The show has already taped over 100 episodes, which will air back-to-back Monday through Friday at 1 and 1:30 p.m. EST. Be sure to check your local listings to see when Family Feud is on in your area.
And for now, check out a clip of Harvey in action at his new gig.
