Fox Taps Steve Harvey for Live Times Square New Years Special

Fox is changing up its New Years plans.

Instead of airing “Pitbull’s New Years Revolution” as they have for the past few years, the network is instead going to run “Fox’s New Year’s Eve with Steve Harvey: Live from Times Square.” The new special will air Sunday, Dec. 31 from 8-10 p.m. ET and 11 p.m.-12:30 a.m. on Fox. Harvey will be joined by surprise celebrity guests and some of the year’s top music artists to wrap up 2017 and kick off the New Year. Performers and co-hosts will be announced. The special will be executive produced by IMG.

Fox first began airing “Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution” in 2014, with the rapper hosting the special from his native Miami. The 2016 edition of the special was co-hosted by celebrity guests Snoop Dogg and Queen Latifah. Past participants include Sean “P-Diddy” Combs, cast members from Fox’s “Empire,” Salt-n-Pepa, and Timabland. Last year’s edition of Pitbull’s special did not feature a primetime portion like years past, with Fox airing reruns in the timeslot instead.

Harvey is an actor, comedian, and talk show host who currently hosts six TV shows: daytime talk show “Steve”; “Little Big Shots” and “Little Big Shots: Forever Young”; “Family Feud;” “Celebrity Family Feud”; and “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome.” He also hosts the nationally syndicated radio program “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” which premiered in 2000. Additionally, he has hosted the Miss Universe contests, which have aired on Fox since 2015, and he will host the return of “Showtime at the Apollo,” scheduled to premiere on Fox in 2018.
