*NBC is reviving “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” and replacing Robin Leach with its “America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon.
Unlike the late-‘80s and ‘90s version that showcased the extreme wealth of celebrities and athletes, the new version will focus on Cannon’s point of view as well as feature profiles of the mega-rich, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The site says the new show will feature tech billionaires, who are quickly becoming the new face of wealth. Philanthropic efforts will also be covered.
“Robin Leach passed the torch to me, now I’m producing and hosting the new ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,’” Cannon told E! News. “You know what? I think rich and famous people take themselves too seriously. I’m gonna be just like I am on this show [‘America’s Got Talent’]. I’ll be like, ‘What the hell? Gold toilet seats? Let’s pop bottles.’”
