President Obama Will Sit For An Hour-Long One-On-One w/ Steve Harvey On His Show Next Week

Steve Harvey has to be one happy guy now that he's landed the biggest coup of his TV talk show so far.

Steve Harvey Show

To be perfectly honest, I’m not exactly sure if this is major news or not, but this does prove one thing for sure: that The Steve Harvey Show definitely must be very popular, with the show announcing that President Obama will sit down for an hour long, one-on-one interview with Steve Harvey on the syndicated TV talk show, this Friday Dec. 20th.

And you have to figure that the White House felt that it was an excellent PR move for the President, no doubt because of the show’s consistently high ratings and Harvey’s popularity. Of course one other major factor, and not in any way criticizing Harvey, but obviously knowing that it would be a friendly interview and not a confrontational one, was no doubt very appealing to the White House as well (I mean it’s not going to be Bill O’Reilly for sure).

Harvey said that he and the President talked "family, fatherhood and his plans for the holidays,” and also, according to him, sitting down with the President is something I’ve always dreamt of doing, and I am honored to have the opportunity.

However you feel about Harvey, this is a major coup for his program and proves that he has come a long way from being just your run-of-the-mill stand up comedian.

He figured out a long time ago that the key to long lasting success is to diversify into other ventures, such as writing best selling books (which i- turn become hit b.o. comedies), being a morning radio show host, a talk show host, and a TV game show host while still doing your comedy stuff here and there whenever you can. Smart move.
