Now here's some talk show development news I can get excited about! My absolute favorite, syndicated morning radio host, Steve Harvey is reportedly developing a daytime talk show with Endemol USA. According to Broadcasting & Cable, the hysterical comedian, who has transitioned into a relationship expert in recent years—thanks to his New York Times best selling books Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man and Straight Talk, No Chaser— is partnering with Endemol and NBCUniversal for a syndicated talker that will couple Harvey's comic sensibilities with his advice platform.
"Most daytime talk shows today that have a comedic undertone are celebrity driven. This show will have a comedic sensibility with Steve as a host who will actually deal with, comment on and discuss topics and issues that people bring to the show. It will always aim to be comedic, as well as poignant and inspiring," says Goldberg.
I have been a huge fan of Harvey's since his self-titled WB sitcom The Steve Harvey Show (RIP, Merlin Santana) and wake up to his nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show each and every morning. Dude even got me to turn back into Family Feud since he started hosting the gamer! I cannot wait for the fall of 2012 when Harvey's new daytime vehicle is set to premiere! What about you guys? Are you excited to see Steve Harvey get his own talk show?
