"Steve is one of the best entertainers in the country and his first season has been a tremendous success because of the personal connection he makes with the daytime audience," Ted Harbert, chairman of NBC Broadcasting, said in a statement.

"It's so great to see Steve's very funny and substantive show being rewarded with long-term commitments from our station partners."

"Steve Harvey," which was already renewed for its second season in national syndication earlier this year, has now been extended for additional seasons through 2016 with station groups including the NBC-owned television stations, Hearst, Cox, Media General, FOX, Sinclair, Gannett, Local TV, Allbritton, LIN, Nexstar, Raycom and others.
