Steve Harvey will bring his wit and insights to a new venture starting Sept. 4. The Chicago-based show, aptly titled “Steve Harvey” hits daytime TV with a different approach to talk shows.
The different approach is simple. It stars Harvey. “I’m not a doctor or a therapist, but I am an expert on men – I know what makes us tick. So I’m going to bring that male perspective to daytime in the hopes of helping women at home who are wondering ‘what’s up’ with their men,” he said in a release.
“Steve Harvey” premieres in syndication on Tuesday, Sept. 4 (check local listings). In a nutshell, here is how the production company sums the show up. “Each weekday, comedian, radio show host and best-selling author Steve Harvey will offer his funny, common sense advice to those seeking solutions to their most personal relationship problems. Husbands and wives, moms and dads, boyfriends and girlfriends and more will open up as Harvey shares his wit and wisdom on the issues they face. Every hour features multiple topics such as marriage, dating, parenting, workplace issues, personal finance, friendship dilemmas and the daily dramas we face throughout our lives, all with Harvey’s unique comedic spin.”
What does Harvey think about that? “I’m so excited to begin this next phase of my career. I loved doing stand-up comedy more than anything else I’ve ever done in my life. But I gave it up for this. So I’m going to give it everything I’ve got.” Here is what to look for when the shows kick off. Harvey kicks things off by answering the studio audience’s questions with his funny, frank answers in “Ask Steve.” From there, the show embraces his brand of humor. If one simply glances at “Family Feud,” it is not hard to spot, and laugh.
Other items in the first show include “The Worst Dater In America!” and “Over-Sharenting.” The latter dealing with those parents who tend to go overboard. Executive producer Alex Duda said, “This is a show for anyone who wants to live smarter, love better and laugh harder each and every day. Steve is going to bring a sense of joy to daytime as he helps all of us find the funny in all of life’s trials and tribulations. Plus, viewers will get lots of info and tips they can apply to their lives.”
Known for his best-selling dating advice book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” Harvey will also share the naked truth about the male perspective on dating, marriage, love and sex. All of this will be packaged around his humor, which provides a look into the male perspective as well. So, television will get, what they are calling “a fresh new sense of humor” when Harvey debuts.
