Ratings: ‘Steve Harvey’ Talk Show Hits Series High With Miss Universe Visit

And the winner is … “Steve Harvey.”

The syndicated talk show, produced by Endemol Shine North America and distributed nationally by NBCUniversal Domestic Television, surged to new ratings heights Monday with an episode featuring Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach of the Philippines. And Tuesday’s episode, featuring Miss Colombia, could even top that.

Looking at the Nielsen overnight numbers, Monday’s telecast of “Steve Harvey” averaged a 2.6 household rating — well above the show’s previous high of 2.2 set a year ago with Harvey’s annual birthday episode. The program ranked No. 1 in several markets, including New York (3.4 on WNBC), Chicago (2.8 on WMAQ), Dallas (3.0 on KXAS), Atlanta (4.2 on WAGA) and Houston (3.7 on KRIV).

The ratings in New York and Houston were all-time highs for “Steve Harvey,” which also achieved record bests in numerous other markets.

On Monday’s episode, titled “Miss Universe: The Truth, Part I,” Harvey broke his silence to address his stint as host of the Miss Universe pageant where he mistakenly announced the wrong woman as the winner on live television. Tuesday’s episode featured a visit from Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, the woman he incorrectly named as the winner of the pageant.

“Steve Harvey,” currently in its fourth season, has won the Daytime Emmy for information talk show the last two years. It also won the NAACP Image Award for outstanding talk series in 2014.
