FROM Steve Harvey
Steve Harvey Barely out of the gate, NBC already has a huge hit with the new reality show Little Big Shots , which features precocious kids singing, dancing, piano-playing, roller skating -- you name it. The series premiered earlier in March, and got picked up for a second season after just two episodes. The host of Little Big Shots is multi-hyphenate comedian Steve Harvey, who also hosts Family Feud and Steve Harvey, his namesake talk show.

But before they got to Little Big Shots, they had to talk about Harvey's recent hosting snafu at December's Miss Universe pageant, where he accidentally declared the wrong winner.
