“Steve Harvey” Debuts to Packed Theater

Popular comedian, author and radio host receives warm welcome

If the crowd Tuesday at the Studio Movie Grill in Arlington was any indication, "Steve Harvey" is a hit.

People packed a watch party for the new daytime talk show, which airs on NBC 5 on weekdays at 2 p.m.

"There's a lot of excitement here for our man Steve Harvey. He's a legend," said Sean Andre, a radio host on 105.7 FM, which broadcasts Harvey's radio show.

The crowd laughed and cheered throughout the stand-up comedian, author and radio host's show, which was broadcast on a big movie screen.

"They absolutely love everything about Steve Harvey -- from his bald head to his suit and jackets," said Rodney Wright, of 104 FM. "I think [he's so popular because of] all the advice that he gives. I think that he's a people person and he relates to a lot of people as far as relationships and careers."

Harvey has been making people laugh since his days in North Texas. He had comedy store and a comedy club in the area.

"He's done so much for the local communities here in the Metroplex," Andre said. "I think everyone is so happy for him, and it's a genuine type of happiness for Steve Harvey and all his success."
