Jay Leno, Olympian Simone Manuel to kick off new 'Steve Harvey' season

Daytime meets primetime as Steve Harvey chats with former "The Tonight Show" host Jay Leno on next month's fifth season premiere of "Steve Harvey."

Leno, who filmed the episode Thursday in Chicago, discusses the upcoming season of his CNBC show "Jay Leno's Garage," according to a "Steve Harvey" representative.

Harvey, who tapes his talk show at the WMAQ-Ch. 5 studios, also talks with gold-medal swimmer Simone Manuel and "Southside with You" stars Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers on the Sept. 6 premiere. Producers considered opening the fifth season with Harvey on a boat on the Chicago River with Sean "Diddy" Combs, but that plan was scrapped.
