If you’ve been a fan of “Family Feud” since the Richard Dawson seasons, then you know that the contestants can be a little cheeky with their answers. But, what makes the current rendition of the popular show so entertaining now is how the present host, Steve Harvey, interacts with the people. It’s hilarious how a single answer can create such a bevy of reactions. So, let’s go through some of the most outrageous answers on the current edition of this top rated “Family” show. Survey says:
This clip got plenty-o-media coverage when a contestant blurted out the first thing that came to her mind about zombies.
Less than a year ago we learned that Real Housewives of Atlanta sophomore, Porsha Stewart, would be divorcing her hsuband, Kordell Stewart. Now that divorce proceedings appear to be wrapping up, the bubbly 30-something-year-old reality star is ready to dive back into the dating game. Luckily for her (or unluckily, depending on who you ask), she has author, radio and television host Steve Harvey to help her out. The soon-to-be divorced entrepreneur appeared on Steve’s daytime talk show earlier this week and participated in an interesting segment called, Dating Porsha Stewart, where she interviewed a few eligible bachelors and selected one of them to date.
At several point in the segment, Steve must’ve found that Porsha got a little too excited over the fellas, as he pulled her coattail and humorously told her several times to simmer down.
“Now Porsha, Porsha, you gon’ have to tone down some of this excitement. ‘Cuz you just like, ‘Yessss! I love everything, everything *Hercules clap*. ‘ Stop! You cannot like all of these guys. Slow it down. Back it up,” Steve said.
“Listen to me, stop! You can’t comment on everything. You don’t have to cheer ‘em on so hard,” he continued.
She eventually decided to go with bachelor Kinyumba, which wasn’t a bad choice. They look great together.

TV talk shows have become a game of musical chairs. There are shows that have been canceled, hosts who are changing channels, and personalities coming back. But will anyone top the success Oprah Winfrey had when she reigned as the Queen of Daytime and the model talk show host? The new slew of TV hosts are going to give it a try. Here’s a look at who’s doing what and where this coming season.
Steve Harvey will be calling NBC home for a bit longer. The network has just renewed Harvey’s daytime show through 2016.
Since its premiere Steve Harvey has continued to gain viewers. “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,” Ted Harbert, chairman of NBC Broadcasting, told Variety. “It’s so great to see Steve’s very funny and substantive show being rewarded with long-term commitments from our station partners.” He’s been so successful in fact that he’s beating Katie Couric in the important women 25-to-54 demographic.
In fact, this is the second time this year that NBC has renewed the show. Earlier this year, the syndicated program was renewed for its second season. But the new renewal through 2016 includes the NBC-owned TV stations, Hearst, Cox, Fox and Sinclair, and covers over 65 percent of the U.S., reports the magazine. So his show is getting an even broader reach, which could lead to even bigger ratings.
Steve Harvey launched last fall and has led the ratings pack among newbie daytime talk shows, topping in women 18-to-49 and women 25-to-54 among freshmen contenders.
We’ve been pretty open about the fact that we’re not huge fans of Katie Couric’s daytime talk show. Clearly, what we’re seeing on-screen reflects the issues going on behind-the-scenes.
Two co-executive producers and a director are the latest departures, according to sources for The Hollywood Reporter. A few other producers previously left the show, following the departure of Jeff Zucker, who’s now at CNN. Rumors are swirling that the show will not make it to the third season and Couric herself might head to CNN. A source for the New York Post says Zucker’s departure from the talk show “left a void.” A second source notes “creative tension.” The tabloid says that there will be additional job cuts.
THR says the show has struggled with the balance of hard news and the fluffier fare that daytime viewers are used to. Indeed if you’ve ever watched the show, one minute there’ll be a segment about some serious health issue, the next Katie is doing a sit down with a celebrity who has a movie to plug. Her ratings for women ages 25-to-54 are actually lower than Steve Harvey’s, who is clearly killing it on his show.
The Atlantic Wire proposes that, if she did go to CNN, there could be space for Couric in the morning (displacing Kate Bouldan) or in primetime. Would you be more likely to watch her show there?
It’s been nearly two years since Oprah finished up her uber-popular daytime talk show—4,561 complete in shows in fact, according to People. But there’s one thing she simply misses the most—the audience.
The OWN creator sat down with Steve Harvey on his network talk show, also based in Chicago, and explained her feelings “I got a little choked up seeing you guys today, because what I really miss is the camaraderie with the audience every day… I did that for 25 years,” said Oprah.
She told Harvey she decided to end her show while she was still on top. “When I look back at the body of work, those of you who watched us for years, it’s astounding,” Oprah explained.
Awww, Oprah! Many people miss you too! You can read more over on essence.com. Perhaps it’s time for a new talk show on OWN? Would you watch?
It was this month last year that Think Like A Man came out. With expectations all over the place, nobody knew what to expect (it’s a movie based off of Steve Harvey’s advice for goodness sake), but with such a large cast, we all hoped for the best. In the end of course, the movie beat expectations, got Steve Harvey a talk show, grossed more than $33 million during the opening weekend, going number one, and in the end, earned more than $100 million worldwide for a movie that only took $12 million to make. So you know what that means…sequel alert!
According to Shadow and Act, a sequel is in the works, and the title will be, Think Like A Man Too…how “fun.” Guess they took a cue from Tyler Perry and decided to keep it simple with “Too.” Anywho, the movie is scheduled to hit theaters on May 30, 2014, and Will Packer is going to be behind the movie once again, as well as Steve Harvey of course as an executive producer.
The same writers are in the picture to make the storyline follow the lessons in Harvey’s book. But all I ask for the next movie is that they pass on all the over-the-top cameos they had in the last film (i.e., Chris Brown and a bunch of other singers who just happened to be in the ATL when the movie was shooting and decided to stop by). But otherwise, I’m sure it will be another hilarious and successful movie.
Are you excited? What do you hope for in the sequel?
Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor writer, director and producer, Tyler Perry recently paid a visit to The Steve Harvey Show. During his visit, Steve and Tyler discussed his many accolades and accomplishments as well as plans for the future. When asked what he hasn’t accomplished yet, but hopes to accomplish in the near future, Tyler revealed that he’s just about ready to be a father.
“More than anything I think that it’s fatherhood. I know I would be a great father. I don’t want to work this hard. I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children,” Tyler expressed as the audience smiled and offered approving nods.
He also said that he realizes his current schedule would probably make parenting difficult.
“I also know that as hard as I’m working, doing twenty hours per day, now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work. I’m enjoying being a bachelor, so eventually I’ll get there,” he continued.
You can probably guess that tell-it-like-it-is Steve wasn’t going to let him off the hook that easily. He humorously reminded Tyler that he’s not some young cat in his twenties with a whole lot of time to waste.
“Now, we done talked about this before. You don’t got all this time you keep thinking you got,” Steve said.
“Listen, I’m 43, so two more years. By 45 you know who the hell you are, right? You’ve really settled in at 45 so I think two more years,” Tyler said, attempting to bargain with big brother Steve.
Of course, Steve continued to poke fun at him.
“When the boy is 15 and you 60…” Steve said before looking at the floor, allowing his words to settle.
“I’ll hire someone to take him to the basketball court. That’s what I’ll have to do,” Tyler responded before the two shared in what appeared to be a good laugh.

The man with the well-manicured mustache has all the funnies and now, apparently all the answers when it comes to love. Steve Harvey, the self professed love guru to the everyday woman and author of the best-selling book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man uses his show as a platform to answer women’s most pressing issues and questions regarding men. So what, pray-tell, gives Steve the right to think he’s the expert on relationships? I mean, the king of comedy dresses in swagger-esque suits that fit like a glove, but does he fit into this love advisor role so easily? Especially since he’s on his third marriage, and has claims of abuse thrown at him from his ex-wife.
Regardless of those accusations, people shouldn’t be quite so quick to disregard Steve’s advice. Sure, some of it is a little left-field, but there are times when he’s been dead-on. Here are a few book quotes that prove we should lend Steve our ears and hear at least some of what he has to say.
Whatever Steve Harvey touches goes gold. And now his new talk show is considered a “solid win” by NBC, reports the The New York Times.
Since debuting in September, Steve Harvey has been a daytime TV success, averaging a rating of 0.9 among women ages 25 to 54. And, according to the newspaper, the show just keeps attracting more and more viewers.
In February, the show posted a 1.0 rating, tying with Katie Couric’s syndicated talk show for the first time. His show is even already posting a slight profit, according to Endemol. Endemol produces it for NBC, which then sells it to stations across the country.
Harvey still also works on his national morning radio show, the game show Family Feud (which he started hosting in 2010) and various other ventures, such as the hit feature film, Think Like a Man, that made $100 million last year.
“While many of his older fans are, like him, African-American, Mr. Harvey has demonstrated that he has significant crossover appeal” reports the Times.
TV stations seem to love Harvey as well. Harvey’s show costs a lot less to produce than Couric’s does meaning stations pay less to carry it.
Due to his recent crossover success, Harvey was recently dubbed the “next Oprah” by the Hollywood Reporter.
“I won’t be Oprah, but maybe baby Oprah,” Harvey said to the newspaper with a laugh after he’d let his guard down a bit about that scary moniker. “Just call me little O!”
Success isn’t new to Harvey who had the hit TV comedy series, The Steve Harvey Show, which ran from 1996 to 2002.
