Steve Harvey and NeNe Leakes (ABC)
TVSteve Harvey will be doing double duty this summer. Not only will he host his regular syndicated Family Feud gig, Harvey will also host the celebrity primetime version of the show on ABC. Beginning on Sunday, June 26, Steve Harvey hosts the second season of Celebrity Family Feud, which is part of ABC’s “Fun & Games Night.”

For those who do not want to wait, the network will re-air one of the more popular episodes from last summer on Thursday, June 23 at 10:00 p.m. That episode pitted Anthony Anderson (from Black-ish) and his family against Toni Braxton’s family. The second half of the show features Monica Potter’s family vs. Curtis Stone’s family. (Anderson will serve as host of his own game show, To Tell the Truth, which premiere’s with a “sneak peek” on June 14 at 10:00 p.m. also on ABC.)
