The comedian recently took to Instagram to share a clip from the final episode of “Steve!,” which aired Wednesday. In the video, he reflected on his experience as an entertainer, comparing his life to a book. 

“Seven years coming to a close. This is good though, man. You gotta understand how it works. Your life ain't nothing but a book,” he said. “I happen to be 62 years old. I am in the middle of my 62nd chapter of the book that I’m writing. There are some good books in there, too, there are some good chapters and some bad chapters ... But in this 62nd chapter, I got my finger on the corner of the page. All I’m doing is I'm about to turn it. I can’t wait to see what God’s got for me on that other page.”

In May, NBC canceled “Steve!” The network also announced Melissa McCarthy would replace Harvey as the host of “Little Big Shots.” 

He still maintains his jobs on “Family Feud” and the Miss USA pageant. And he still hosts a syndicated radio show every morning, heard locally on Majic 107.5/97.5.

Although it’s unclear what’s next for Harvey, his son, Wynton Harvey, hinted there could be an announcement soon. In the comments of his dad’s Instagram post, he wrote, “If they only knew what was next.”
