Steve Harvey has made NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution a happy group. The comedian's self-titled talk show has been renewed through 2016.
The breakout chatfest has been picked up in over 65 percent of the country. The Steve Harvey Show, which is produced by Endemol, is one of the few freshman talk shows to prove a solid hit.
In a released statement, NBC Broadcasting Chairman Ted Harbert said:
Steve is one of the best entertainers in the country and his first season has been a tremendous success because of the personal connection he makes with the daytime audience. It's so great to see Steve’s very funny and substantive show being rewarded with long-term commitments from our station partners.
In its inaugural season, Steve Harvey has at times crushed No. 1 new talker Katie among key female demographics.
