Fox Orders a Weekly ‘Showtime at the Apollo’ Series

harvey_apolloFox 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. “Instead of just putting on a great show, we’re going to do that and find the next great comic and the next big music star. That’s what the Apollo is all about. My roots are on that stage and I can’t wait to be there every week, looking for great talent. Who said you can’t go back home again?”
