Steve Harvey’s Emmy Award winning talk show returns to daytime television with a new name, new look and new vibe. Harvey’s nationally syndicated show, which has moved from Chicago to plush new digs in Los Angeles, is now known simply as “Steve,” and premieres at 2 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 5 on NBC.
According to the network, “Steve” will be produced by Harvey in partnership with IMG, and will tape on a new set at the Universal lot. Reportedly, Harvey will have more creative control of the show, as well as partial ownership, and with his move to the West Coast, viewers can expect more celebrity interviews in addition to the comedian’s candid commentary on pop culture.
“As I embark on this new adventure, I’m excited to explore everything Los Angeles has to offer for this new show,” Harvey said in a statement.
“’Steve’ is going to be different than my current daytime show. The new location will allow me to welcome more celebrity guests and more importantly, let me do what I enjoy best, being funny!”
A TV host, radio host, bestselling author and one of the Original Kings of Comedy, along with Cedric the Entertainer, D.L. Hughley and the late Bernie Mac, Harvey is currently the host of the nationally syndicated radio program, “Steve Harvey Morning Show” as well as host and executive producer of multiple television shows including “Funderdome,” “Family Feud,” “Celebrity Family Feud,” “Steve Harvey,” and the hit NBC primetime show “Little Big Shots.”
