Steve Harvey isn't happy that Kelly Clarkson was given his timeslot without advance notice

When asked Wednesday at the Variety Entertainment Summit if his talk show intends to stay at NBC Universal after this season, Harvey responded: “I thought I was until they made an announcement a couple weeks ago that they wanted to give Kelly Clarkson the owned-and-operated NBC networks — that’s my slot. I don’t know if it sold, it’s not selling like they thought, but I thought it would have been nice of them to come to me — as the only dude who’s survived (in daytime TV) for seven years — about it.” Variety reports that NBC Universal will stop distributing Steve at the end of this season, and that producers are already shopping the show to other outlets.

The Voice star's NBC Universal-produced daytime talk show has been sold to 30% of NBC stations less than two months after she filmed a pilot. The Kelly Clarkson Show will replace Steve Harvey's Steve talk show. "I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations,” Clarkson said in a statement. “Having my own talk show where I get to do all of these things is pretty much a dream job!” Clarkson's talk show is described as a "weekday brunch party" featuring guests who would typically never meet. Clarkson's pilot featured a set dressed like a barn with guests Chloe Grace Moretz, Josh Groban and Terry Crews, as well as a group of quilting ladies from North Carolina.

Robert De Niro's Tony Awards "F*ck Trump" outburst was "brief, profane and pointless"
Source: The Atlantic
As Samantha Bee recently learned, uttering profanity against the Trump administration isn't very effect, according to Sophie Gilbert. "A brief outburst was apparently as far as his onstage protest was willing to go," she says of De Niro's outburst. "In that, the moment was of a piece with the bulk of the other statements made on the Tony stage, and with Kelly Clarkson’s vague call for 'action' on mass shootings at last month’s Billboard Music Awards, and with the Oscars in March, where President Trump’s name was barely mentioned at all. De Niro’s exclamation was easy—cathartic in its plosive syllables and its matching, guttural vowel sounds, and employing a profanity that postures itself as daring, subversive. It might have been a satisfying moment for De Niro and for his audience, but it was toothless otherwise." She adds: "It’s easy to take a platform that offers easy (if bleeped-out) access to millions of people and use profanity to capture a mood, to express an emotion. But the outrage that will doubtless ensue is a distraction from what really matters, and what’s much harder to realize: the work of trying to change a situation, not just rage against it."

Why Kelly Clarkson's Billboard Music Awards "moment of action" critique of a "moment of silence" was so flawed
Source: The Atlantic
Clarkson wanted to do something more productive by having a "moment of action" in honor of the victims of the Santa Fe High School shooting. "She said, in essence, that whatever you believe, you should do something about it, rather than remain apathetic or paralyzed," says Spencer Kornheiser. "But there’s something troubling, too, in critiquing silence as too timid and then declining to say what you actually think should be done to prevent the next horror. Clarkson did imbue powerful emotion in her speech, drawing upon her own roots in Texas. Yet at an awards show devoted to the profitability of music more than its content, she stood vulnerable to the most cynical critique of what pop stars do: sell a feeling, and nothing more."

“I’m so sick of moments of silence, it’s not working, obviously,” she said in a cold open to the official show. “Why don’t we do a moment of action? Why don’t we do a moment of change? Why don’t we change what’s happening? Because it’s horrible.”

Kelly Clarkson reacts to Smallville's Allison Mack apparently trying to recruit her to the NXIVM sex cult
In 2013, Mack tweeted to Clarkson, "I heard through the grapevine that you're a fan of Smallville. I'm a fan of yours as well! I'd love to chat sometime." But Clarkson was never made aware of the tweet until recently. When Billboard asked her about it, she said, "Oh, my God, and somehow my name and Emma Watson’s came up?" Did she have a recollection of Mack tweeting at her? "No -- my publicist called me the other day, and I didn’t have a clue," Clarkson said. "I’m in a state of bewilderment. I guess she tweeted me and tried to reach out years ago. I mean, I was a fan of Smallville, but I don’t know her. The only kind of sex I’m into is the kind I’m having."
