Who says successful black men are hard to come by ! Comedian Steve Harvey, NFL great–Michael Strahan and former “106 & Park” host Terrence J., have all landed major TV deals as the front men for three popular shows.

When Terrence J. first announced that he and co-host Rocsi Diaz were out of a job, we worried about him solidifying his next move.  Sure, he’s appeared in a couple movies, but if he wanted to continue to afford his supermodel girlfriend Selita Ebanks, he was going to have to find steady (and significant) income. (Yeah, we’re sure they are in love but…what’s love got to do with it?) Since landing a gig at E! Entertainment, Terrence will be able to maintain his lavish lifestyle including his flamboyant belle in designer garments!

Steve Harvey turned his “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man” enterprise into his very own talk show–“Steve Harvey.” Though, we still don’t believe we should be looking to him for couples counseling, it is inspiring to see how far he has come, since playing the piano with a high top fade on “The Steve Harvey Show.”

And, who knew a man who who hid behind a helmet everyday would fit right in on “Live With Kelly Ripa?” Sure Michael Strahan is most known for tossing around a football, but he can hold an intelligent conversation, right, play with zoo animals, cook kid-ready meals and more! The former NFL Giant beat out stiff competition to win the coveted roll of replacing the legendary Regis Philbin on the years old morning show.

We wish all of them well and most importantly, we’ll be watching!
