I found one interview with Harvey about the show.
(Anyone got a good subtitle?)

It's every bit as awful as you might expect. Couples with non-problems ("My husband has an entire room of our house dedicated to Paris because it's where we went on our honeymoon and it brings back good memories for him!" This is a problem...how? And you can't figure out a compromise on your own?) come to Steve Harvey, who is qualified for...nothing, for his stone-age, man beleaguered, woman impossible, relationship advice.
Really folks, why are we spending time on message boards when apparently anyone, and I do mean anyone, can have a talk show? (See also: Ripa, Kelly.)

Sounds like a rip-off of that crappy "Marriage Ref" show Jerry Seinfeld did a couple seasons ago - except in talk show format instead of a reality show, or whatever that thing was.

We waited forever to get into the studio but we were given water and soda while we waited and we got a five dollar Starbucks gift card as we left since we had to wait so long.
I wonder if it will do better than we think it will since it is airing either before or after Ellen DeGeneres' show?

You're right, designing1; they give any clown a talk show. This sounds like another one to quickly land in that very full dustbin holding each season's new gabfests.
Even if I were available at that time, I wouldn't bother. All, JMHO, as usual.

It just seemed hokey and washed out. I think he'd be better served in a nighttime show. His brand of humor is just going to be stifled here for the mommy set that's home with the brats. When I first heard he was getting a talk show I just knew he was going to take Monique's spot since she sucked so hard.
I'll give it a few more weeks on the dvr before I make a decision.

My parents have been married for 51 years and I certainly wouldn't go to my dad for marriage advice.

I think Steve and his producers think they have a chance of carving a niche in daytime and potentially the show becoming really successful. I've read and heard he hopes to have Oprah type success, which is a reason he's doing the show from Chicago.
I agree he would have been better in nighttime. I'd rather watch Steve Harvey the comedian than Steve Harvey the thrice married guy doling out relationship advice.

This just isn't what I expected. I thought there would be celebrity guests and singers/performances I might not normally see during daytime. Why not the cast of Think Like a Man? Why not some R&B performances? Why not some real issues that affect people like me. No offense but I wanted to see some flavor. If he's going to talk to random chats, why not how to raise a strong black male in a single parent household. Light versus dark skin. Does being thick mean your fat? Have the women of Basketball Wives or that R&B Divas show on and talk about the diff in behavior of the ladies. Damnit something!!
Anything but who makes a better turkey burger??? Seriously? That shit is so Pollyanna purebred I almost threw up in my mouth. He'll never hit Oprah status with this crap.

I expected an Ellen DeGeneres vibe with an R&B flava, not a bald Ricki Lake!
Of course, the great irony is that Ricki's original chat show had *tons* more flava than Steve's show right now.

Folks come on the show with relationship problems and Steve rip into them with common sense advice. That would be something different because the fucked up guests on shows like Maury get coddled too much. Steve would put the guests in their place. And it would be funny as hell.
I cannot imagine the crappy topics on his talk show is the vision he had for this show.

Watched on Friday and listened to his watered down explanation of a misbehaving child....now, on his show he never hesitates to let us know that he would 'beat dat ass!' so I don't know why he feels he needs to whitewash it on the telly.

That's exactly what this show is, a whitewash. This is Steve doing a bad impression of a corny white game show host. I can't imagine this is the vision he had for the show when he was in meetings w producers.
"hey, let's have on an 11yr old girl who can lasso!...Really? No, Really??
I know Steve gets a lot of flack for being a thrice married man who know doles out marital advice, but there's no denying what he says always makes sense. I've followed Steve for quite some time. The radio show, the seminars, the Hoodie Awards, none of that Steve is reflected in this shitshow.
Where is Steve Harvey??? There is NO Steve Harvey on this show!! To ask me to listen to the radio show and then to turn into this feels like a lie. I can only hope that he is given another season and the show gets a complete revamp. I as a black woman would love to finally have a show that speaks to me in the a.m. This aint it.

I can. He has said he wants to be the new Oprah and he wouldn't want to scare off anyone looking for Family Feud Steve. If he wanted to do the "real" Steve, he could have gone late-night or to BET. Steve wants to get as much money and exposure as possible, doing this show, judging by the ratings, is his best bet.

This is the most hilarious description ever. LOL. Is this show in all markets? I live in DC and I've never seen any promos for it. I liked The Steve Harvey Show, but I think I liked it because of the ensemble cast moreso than Steve himself. I can listen to him for a couple of minutes, but then I have to turn it off.
I can't with him and his mustache, 8 button Skittles colored suits, and terrible ass accent.

At any rate, I'm used to the rhythm.
