If you were one of the many who took actor/comedian Steve Harvey’s best-selling advice to Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, the star will soon be sending some more pearls of wisdom your way soon via your television set. EW has confirmed that the author is developing a comedy-based talk show inspired by the 2009 book that will air in syndication through NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution.

Harvey, who is currently fielding issues on Family Feud and his popular syndicated radio program, will executive produce and host the show, which will aim to cover a variety of topics, including relationships, parenting, and body issues, while infusing his Kings of Comedy blend of humor to the mix.

The yet-to-be-titled talk show is scheduled to arrive on television by 2012, the same year that the big-screen adaptation of Act Like a Lady… is slated to be released in theaters.

    I like Steve. But, sometimes I think he seems a little bit racist with his jokes about white people. Sorry:(

    • Haley

      No need to be sorry. That’s how you feel. I’m black, but sometimes I feel the same way you do. Sure, it’s funny sometimes, but I can see from where you are coming…

    • Shannon

      Why like him if he’s racist? Either you’re in or you’re out. When did comedy become so regulated and dissected?
      Either it’s funny or it’s not.
      Whites have been making a killing off telling black jokes for years. get over yourself

      • Haley

        Because, Shannon, sometimes I find racism funny. I’m not saying comedy should be regulated, I’m just saying he shouldn’t feel bad for finding some jokes a little racist. As far as black and white, well, I like my comedy a little gray. Being “in or out” is for simple-minded people. I don’t laugh at everything.

      • Haley

        After reading my comment, I feel I need to clarify. I find racial satire funny at times. I was being sarcastic when I said I find racism funny and I don’t think it came across as clearly as I would have liked. This is why comedy is better left to the professionals.

      …..people these days. Its just comedy!!! Get over it and keep it moving

  • Beauty

    Say what you want about Steve. He’s not my fav person but gotta admit the book was pretty good!

  • plushpuppy

    this book is sexist claptrap that I can’t believe has sold anything.

    • Jillian

      If Steve Harvey can make money in show business, anybody can! Don’t like him, not funny!!!

      • Putuyi

        Very true…he’s so “not funny”

  • vj

    Steve Harvey is so incredibly unfunny. My sister said his book was sexist and read like something written in 1955. But it seems very easy to sell this kind of shlock to black people. Put any slight reference to god or jesus and they’ll buy it.

    • Jillian

      Is your life so boring that you have to try to stir up $hit on here! Sad!

  • Michael

    I really don’t like him on Family Feud. He doesn’t talk to the families as good as Richard Dawson delivered, nor does he take the time to meet them as well as Louie Anderson thrived. He really needs to improve his might as a emcee.

  • Shannon

    I don’t get public opinion, on the one hand you say Steve Harvey’s book is sexist, which it probably is, then in the same breath you say blacks are stupid b/c if they liked it since it referenced traditional religion.
    Isn’t it racist to call all blacks one thing or another? like religous fanatics?
    So sexism bad. racism ok?

  • Makiba

    Ben, you need to be enlightened, the fact that you have applied the word “uppity” in this context
    proves that its a habitual sublimity with you in dealing with Black Men who are out of your
    stereotypical norms. It also exhibit your ignorance that is well below the sublime obliviousness, even
    to your non-existent world view of human discernment notwithstanding decency.

  • Vegasboy87

    This sounds gooooooood!!!

  • karen felder

    The “Book” speaks for itself, it’s still selling; the man’s shows sell-out wherever he goes (b&w); Family Feud is a highly rated show,,,,what is all the negativity about? I forgot, somebody’s gotta have the job as haters, so why not U. No haters, no ratings! Keep the hate going:~(

    Interesting post and view, hope to hear more what the future holds THANKS Great post. Probably saved thousands of hours between everybody here. For me,this clearly is a heads up on which methods to focus on to maximise my online success . IĄŻll start concentrating on your other articles instead. Really great advice. Thanks for sharing.

  • sexy cam girls

    Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the net the easiest factor to keep in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get irked even as other people think about worries that they just don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as smartly as outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , other folks could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    sounds good
