Hats off to Steve Harvey

Steve Harvey is having a moment. Harvey-hosted Family Feud topped the syndication chart the week of June 8 for the first time with a 6.1 HH rating, up 33 percent from last year, and his talk show was up 6 percent to 1.8, for a year-to-year increase of 20 percent, the most of any talker. And that’s the week before ABC’s Harvey-hosted Celebrity Family Feud came out of the gate on to 8.5 million viewers and a 2.4 rating among A18-49.
