Talkshop performed well in daytime's key femme demos

Steve Harvey will be sticking around in daytime, as Harvey’s eponymous yakker was renewed by NBC stations through 2016.

“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,” said Ted Harbert, chairman of NBC Broadcasting. “It’s so great to see Steve’s very funny and substantive show being rewarded with long-term commitments from our station partners.”

Steve Harvey” was already renewed for its second season earlier this year. Today’s renewal through 2016 includes the NBC Owned TV Stations, Hearst, Cox, Fox and Sinclair, and clears over 65% of the U.S.

The syndie program entered a crowded daytime space last fall and led the ratings pack among newbie yakkers, topping in women 18-49 and women 25-54 among frosh contenders.

Steve Harvey’s engaging, funny and warm style has been a hit with our audiences, and we couldn’t be happier to continue our partnership with Steve and his great team,” said Valari Staab, prez of NBC Owned Television Stations. “ ‘Steve Harvey’ has strengthened our daytime lineups and proven to be a strong lead in to ‘Ellen’ and, in turn, our local newscasts.”

“Steve Harvey” is produced by Endemol USA. Steve Harvey, Alex Duda and Rushion McDonald are executive producers. The show is distributed in national syndication by NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution and internationally by Endemol Worldwide Distribution.
