The renewal announcement was made Thursday by Barry Wallach, president of NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution, and David Goldberg, chairman and chief executive officer of Endemol North America.

Actor, author and stand-up comedian Steve Harvey is the host of the 1-hour daytime program, which won the 2013 People's Choice Award as Favorite New Talk Show Host Wednesday night.

"This project was a long time in the making and it would not have been possible without the incredibly talented Steve Harvey. His humor, honesty and insight were an immediate hit with the daytime audience," said Goldberg in a statement.
