Steve Harvey to host new talk show in Chicago

He's already looking for a home in the city. He tells the site, "It's such a great city. The restaurants are great. The neighborhoods are great. The downtown is probably one of the best downtowns there is. If I've got to take my family somewhere, I'll take them there."

He also talks about the type of show he wants to do, citing the lack of men doing talk shows. " There's not a lot of male viewpoint on daytime TV. I've got kids. I have a wife. I think that's a unique perspective. Above all else, there's nobody in daytime TV that can beat me at the funny thing - except Ellen DeGeneres. She's my girl. I love her. Other than Ellen, I think I'm the guy who's gonna put more funny on television."

He says this show will be about real people, with few celebrity guests, who he says only come to talk shows to promote stuff. He has different ideas about what people want to see. "It's going to be a very positive show with a male perspective to it. I've made myself a champion for women for a lot of years now, and I think that will come through on the TV show."
