Miss Independent herself will be replacing funnyman Steve Harvey at the end of 2019, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Kelly Clarkson, who has already filmed a pilot for her ‘weekday brunch party,’ will replace Steve after its long run ends next fall. Executives at NBC are bringing Clarkson’s show to 11 US cities including New York, LA, Chicago, Miami, DC, and more. It will air before Ellen.
“I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations,” Clarkson said. “Having my own talk show where I get to do all of these things is pretty much a dream job!”
