TVLine Items: Steve Harvey to Host Fox NYE, School of Rock Axed and More

Steve Harvey Fox New Year's Eve

Steve Harvey will ring in 2018 the same way he spends every other day of his life: hosting.

The ubiquitous TV emcee is adding Fox’s New Year’s Eve With Steve Harvey: Live From Times Square to his already busy plate. (Harvey currently hosts Family Feud, Celebrity Family Feud, Miss Universe, Little Big Shots, Little Big Shots: Forever Young, Steve Harvey’s Funderdome, the daytime talker Steve and deep exhaleFox’s revival of Showtime at the Apollo.)

The NYE special airs live on Sunday, Dec. 31, from 8 to 10 pm and 11 pm to 12:30 am ET (and on tape-delay PT).
