Comedian Steve Harvey just landed his own talk show which is scheduled to air on NBC next fall. The NY Post is reporting that NBC plans to begin airing his new daytime talk show, which will be based on “everyday people” rather than celebrities, variety-show elements such as singing contests and an overall feel he described as “ ‘Oprah’ with a sense of humor.”
“I think it’s going to get absolutely crazy,” he predicted.
The past two years, has been quite busy for Steve, his first book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” published in 2009, sold 3 million copies, and the follow-up, “Straight Talk, No Chaser,” sold 400,000. A spike in ratings followed him to “Family Feud.”
Harvey who loves stand-up is giving it up to make way for the talk show. He said his last comedy show will be next August, in Las Vegas.
Nice work if you can get it! Congratulation Steve.
