You Will Not Be Able To Escape Steve Harvey’s New Talk Show When It Debuts In 2012

You Will Not Be Able To Escape Steve Harvey's New Talk Show When It Debuts In 2012

Too frequently, we throw around the term “hardest-working-person” in one field or another.  But if we take a minute to think about it, there are likely few in entertainment today who are working as hard as actor/comedian/radio personality/game-show host/author/father/husband/etc.Steve Harvey.  And next year, Harvey will be EVERYWHERE in his latest role of talk-show host.

According to TvByTheNumbers:

NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution has sold “Steve Harvey” in over 80% of the U.S., including in 47 of the top 50 markets, for its debut in national broadcast syndication next Fall 2012, it was announced today by Barry Wallach, President, NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution.

As previously announced, the new one-hour talk show, produced by Endemol USA and hosted by TV personality, comedian, radio show host and best-selling author, Steve Harvey, has already been sold in the nation’s top markets to station groups including NBC Owned Television Stations, Fox Television Stations, CBS Television Stations, Hearst Television, Cox Communications, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Local TV and Lin Television, Gannett and Post Newsweek.  New groups include Raycom, Belo, Meredith, Nexstar and more.

“Steve Harvey is a proven ratings winner in syndication and his comedic approach to very relatable topics will resonate with the daytime audience,” said Wallach.

In his new daytime talk show, Steve Harvey will bring his fresh, insightful and common sense approach to life’s funny moments that we all experience. Each weekday, Steve will cover a vast range of relatable topics such as marriage, dating, parenting, workplace, friendship and the daily dramas we face throughout our lives.

mr.steve you a wonderful man and funny as hell keep let od use u in everyway .


I am scratching my head because I just don't understand. I mean, I am trying to figure out a few things that seems to permeate in the comments that hit this board. Well, I am hesitant to use the words "proper Negroes" because we've had that debate before, but there seems to be a tone of "we are better than THOSE black folks" in many of the comments directed at some of our most talented entertainers and business men/women who sometimes… sometimes find themselves at the center of a post. . Seriously, what… those that love and adore following black folks like Steve Harvey, Tyler Perry or Oprah, do not have computer, or they stay clear of this site? Somebody has to tell me what's really going on? Listen, Steve can be funny and it's obvious he has a huge following (just like Tyler Perry), but for some strange reasons, their devoted followers stay clear of this blog… why is that? I don't know, but could it be that they are smarter than the average negro? Maybe they know it's a fool's errand to argue with, or be around those who believe their lifestyles, like and dislike, are the only way, and best way, to do this thang called life? Proper negros? Snotty Negro's? Image conscious kneegrows? Lost and insecure Negros? Wanna-be white Negroes? Are they the core of black folks who visit this site? Or, are they the loudest and most opinionated black folks who grace this site? Tell me quick and tell me true, because sometimes it gets awful stuffy in here. But if the shoe does not fit, that's cool. However, if you can smell your own upper lip, speak to me.


You have to admit, Steve Harvey has common sense. And apparently that's rare these days.

This is a good motivation to read more books.


Harvey had his best moment in Spike Lee's "The Kings of Comedy." Now he is just getting paid.


At least Steve Harvey (used to) make me laugh. I've been able to escape from him for the past few years, 2012 won't be any different. I'm looking forward to Oprah and Queen Latifah's shows more.


What do you call the philosophical phenomena of people aligning themselves with more talented people becoming popular by association. Reaching demographics that may not necessarily enjoy their talents but their proximity to those they did enjoy validates them. Basically I'm saying we all liked Bernie Mac and Cedric more than him. But Bernie is dead, and Cedric wishes he was a white comedian from the vaudeville era. So we are left with Steve having to be better than them because he is kore successful. Just like Tebow is better than Cam Newton because his team is winning more games.


You forgot fashion designer in your hyphenated description of him.


Next to Tyler Perry, Steve Harvey is one of the most polarizing figures in the black community. If you want to start a heated argument, bring up Perry or Harvey.

But, love him or hate him, all Hollywood cares about is this:

"Steve Harvey is a proven ratings winner…"


What a waste of tv space!
