Harvey’s syndicated series Steve was axed in May of this year after two seasons, with Kelly Clarkson’s eponymous daytime talker eventually replacing the program on NBC owned-and-operated affiliates. Prior to that, the comedian hosted The Steve Harvey Show for five years. (He also of course hosts assorted Family Feuds.)
“Reaching my audience anywhere and everywhere they are has always been the goal,” Harvey said in a statement. “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.”
