From 1993 to 2000, Steve Harvey took to the stage at Showtime At The Apollo to help present some amateur talent to a live audience. The show which originally was filmed at The Apollo Theater in Harlem is now bringing back Steve to host a weekly series with FOX.
Fox wants more Showtime at the Apollo. According to The Wrap, the network has given a series order to Showtime at the Apollo, which will take on the form of an hourlong weekly show following the two specials Fox ordered last year and aired in December and February. Like the specials, Steve Harvey will serve as the host of the series, which is expected to debut sometime during the 2017-2018 season. “We all had such a blast on the two specials that aired earlier this season, that we thought it really deserved being a weekly event. But our mission is a little different this time around,” Harvey said on the news.
