There seems to be a rule in the entertainment industry that if you need a host for your show, you need to call Steve Harvey. Already the host of his own syndicated daytime show, “Steve,” “Family Feud,” “Celebrity Family Feud,” “Little Big Shots,” “Miss Universe,” “New Year’s Eve With Steve Harvey,” and his own nationally broadcast morning radio show, Harvey will add the NFL Honors award show next month to his schedule.

The National Football League has announced that Harvey will front NFL Honors at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on Saturday, February 2 on CBS. Harvey joins a roster of hosts that includes Alec Baldwin, Keegan-Michael Key, Seth Meyers, Conan O’Brien, and Rob Riggle.

NFL Honors unveils the year-end Associated Press NFL Awards, including the Most Valuable Player, Coach of the Year, and Comeback Player of the Year, and also announces the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame class.

Harvey’s other hosting duties in the past included “It’s Showtime at the Apollo” and “Kings of Comedy.” I’m sure Harvey would add “Dancing With the Stars,” “The Bachelor,” “Temptation Island,” and “Later” to his resume if they ever had any openings. However, there’s a limit to what he can do, and Harvey is already on the verge of overexposure.

So Steve Harvey will host the NFL Honors and there won’t be any mistakes like during Miss Universe in 2015, right?

The NFL Honors should go off without a hitch, and it airs on CBS on February 2 at 9 p.m. ET.
