People have taken notice recently that Steve Harvey has had a much shorter fuse these days. Steve Harvey has built a career out of being quick on his feet and letting things roll. He always has a witty comeback or a clever retort up his fancy suit sleeve.

However, both viewers and top execs at the network have noticed the fact that the fan-favorite host seems to be more unhinged than usual. While it’s perfectly acceptable to take a jab here and there at players based on what they say on the show, there’s a fine line between witty banter and being downright mean.

Game Show Host Threatens To Quit On The Spot, Why?

With the rumor mill heating up that Steve Harvey could very well be on his way out of the Family Feud gig, it seems Harvey took matters into his own hands recently on the set. In recent scenes, the host asked the question: “If you switch bodies with your dog, what’s the first thing you would do?”

Not missing a beat, a Family Feud player responded with: “Lick yourself.”

Indeed, an emphatic Steve Harvey was energized by this answer. The host even walked around the set, yelling “YES!” Harvey didn’t yell just once, either, as he did it a second time. According to the popular comedian, he then yelled: “Lick myself all day. I would quit my job!”
