On Instagram May 10, Marjorie uploaded a video of her husband addressing audience members following Friday’s news that his NBC talk show “Steve” had been canceled.
“This is good, though, man. You gotta understand how it works,” he said during what appears to be the final taping of the seven-years-running program. “See, your life ain’t nothing but a book. I happen to be 62-years-old. I am in the middle of my 62nd chapter… Had some good chapters, had some bad chapters. Had some chapters that lasted a little bit longer than I wanted to. That homeless chapter way too long, … But in this 62nd chapter, I got my finger on the corner of the page. All I’m doing is I’m about to turn it. I can’t wait to see what God got for me on that other page.”
The audience responded with thunderous applause, and his wife delighted in what she heard.
Marjorie wrote in the caption accompanying the clip, “So proud of you baby! Let’s go do this 👊🏽😍🙏🏽 #harveys #nextlevel #staytuned.”
In response to Steve’s video message, his fans have given him lots of encouragement and shared their eagerness to see what else is in store.
“I’m a big fan of yours and I can’t wait to see what happens in your next chapter…God Blessed you before and he’ll do it again.”
“Keep rising Mr. Harvey!🚀🚀🚀”
“I’ve watched you everyday I’m excited to see all the wonderful things God has planned for you.”
NBC announced Friday it would no longer air “Steve,” which debuted in 2017 following the five-year-run of “The Steve Harvey Show.”
Buzz emerged last fall that the end of the daytime talker was near when the peacock network announced it would be running “The Kelly Clarkson Show” in key NBC markets in place of “Steve.” At the time, however, Harvey’s reps emphasized his talk show had not been canceled.
Still, Harvey seemed upset about the choice, saying at the Variety Entertainment Summit in January that he wasn’t pleased with the network mulling running Kelly Clarkson’s talker, which will premiere this fall, in place of his own.
“I thought I was [going to stay with NBC], until they made an announcement a couple weeks ago that they wanted to give Kelly Clarkson the owned-and-operated NBC networks — that’s my slot,” he said. “I don’t know if it sold, it’s not selling like they thought, but I thought it would have been nice of them to come to me.”
This time around, however, Steve has a much calmer approach, despite his other NBC gig, hosting the child performers variety show “Little Big Shots” also being taken from him. For the upcoming season, his former hosting duties will be handled by comic actress Melissa McCarthy.
