Daytime Talker ‘Steve’ Renewed for Season Two

Steve Harvey Hosted Hour Moved From Chicago to Los Angeles This Year

First-run daytime talker “Steve,” hosted by the busy Steve Harvey, will return for a second season in 2018-19 on stations covering approximately 90 percent of the U.S. TV households (including the NBC’s owned & operated stations). “Steve” follows Harvey’s five-season run on “The Steve Harvey Show” from NBCUniversal, which ended in November 2016. The new show, which relocated from Chicago to Los Angeles, features more celebrity guests, daily audience games and Harvey’s unique viewpoint on all things pop culture.

Season to-date (through Dec. 23, 2017), “Steve” ranks sixth in households in the category of talk among the 14 entries, with a 1.4 rating according to Nielsen. Comparably, that is a loss of 19 percent from one year earlier. First overall is “Dr. Phil” from CBS Television Distribution with a 3.3 rating; followed by “Ellen” from Telepictures and “Live with Kelly and Ryan” from Disney-ABC, each with a 2.3; “Maury” from NBCUniversal at a 1.5; and “Wendy Williams” from Debmar-Mercury at a 1.4.
