Steve Harvey is a go for fall 2012. Today, 10 NBC owned-stations picked up the talk/comedy program, which is produced by Endemol USA and is being distributed by NBC Universal.

Harvey is in his second year as host of syndicated game show Family Feud and he hosts the long-running morning radio show, The Steve Harvey Morning Show.
Steve Harvey joins Disney-ABC’s Katie with Katie Couric as the most likely talk shows in a crowded fall 2012 field to move forward.
“Just to have the NBC O&Os — you have the launch group, so other station groups will pick it up,” says Bill Carroll, EVP and director of programming at Katz Television Group.
