Nationwide — There’s just no stopping Steve Harvey from providing entertaining content to his millions of fans. He recently signed a deal for a new daytime talk show called Steve on Watch that will run exclusively on Facebook.
Starting January 6, 2020, Harvey will be hosting a new show that is slated to run several times a week for 10 weeks. According to reports, new episodes have already been taped from Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.
The show will reportedly have a format similar to his previous TV talk show wherein he shares opinions on various issues and interviews celebrities, people in the news, musicians, and many more.
“Reaching my audience anywhere and everywhere they are has always been the goal,” Harvey said in a statement. “Facebook Watch viewers are the most energetic, engaged community, and so are my amazing fans. Getting all those people to directly engage on a platform like this is the perfect evolution of the show.”
The show is expected to be a hit since Harvey is popular in social media, especially Facebook. In fact, Harvey’s Facebook page was named Top 6 most-viewed U.S. entertainment page. Within a 1 year period, it has reportedly received 2.2 billion views and 64 million engagements. Moreover, 35 of his videos have each been viewed over 10 million times.
The move came a few months since his TV show Steve on NBC ended after its 7-year run and was replaced with Kelly Clarkson’s show.
