Harvey, who makes his debut as host on Monday, has already taped 100 episodes, according to the AP. The gig will not interfere with his comedy tour and syndicated radio show.
As for finding comedy on the show, Harvey says he looks no further than the contestants. "You're not the genius you were at home on the couch," Harvey says of the players, who try to correctly guess the most popular answers to survey questions. "Some of these non-genius answers I get to comment on, and they give me plenty of material."
Harvey, who starred on TV's The Steve Harvey Show, is the sixth host in Family Feud's history. He replaces John O'Hurley, who left the show to focus on theater and other business ventures.
