Steve Harvey Tapes Final Episode Of ‘Steve’
“Steve”, the daytime talk series lead by Steve Harvey for the past seven years, has come to an end despite having great ratings.
The final episode of the show was filmed just this week. Harvey’s wife Marjorie shared the good luck smooch she planted on her hubby right before cameras started to film for a final time. This season, “Steve” averaged about 1.8 million viewers a week, putting it at No. 5 among syndicated talk shows behind “Dr. Phil,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and “Maury.” SMH.

The pre-taped episodes are set to run through June. Steve ran for seven years on NBC, with Harvey one of the few people of color with a successful talk show in the daytime slot in years. The talk show was previously pushed as The Steve Harvey Show but changed styles and tone after Endeavor’s IMG Original Content reached a deal with Harvey in 2017 that included him receiving a majority stake in the show.
Steve doesn’t take the cancellation of his successful daytime show as a loss at all. Hit the flip to hear the speech he gave to his crew after the final episode was taped.
