Steve Harvey bows as new 'Family Feud' host Monday

The Associated Press, Sunday, September 12, 2010, 1:48pm (PDT)

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Steve Harvey says he's bringing change to "Family Feud" and viewers better get ready to laugh.

Harvey, who debuts as the game show's new host Monday, is drawing on his decades in comedy to take the program in a new direction. He's already taped 100 episodes.

He hasn't been at a loss for inspiration, Harvey said. Turns out that playing a game show in the studio, distracted by the audience, lights and noise, can be tougher than the competing families anticipated.

Their incorrect answers are giving him plenty of material to play with, Harvey said. But he said he's keeping the humor strictly G-rated for the syndicated show.

Harvey is replacing actor John O'Hurley, who hosted "Family Feud" for four seasons.
