Steve Harvey Joins GMA as Relationship Counsellor


ABC’s Good Morning America has increased its credibility by hiring comedian Steve Harvey to dispense relationship advice. Since achieving national attention as an expert dispenser of swear words and homey anecdotes in the movie The Original Kings of Comedy, Harvey has become a cuddly sitcom actor (The Steve Harvey Show) and then a dating expert with the best-selling Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment; he also has a syndicated radio show featuring Nephew Tommy (“Do you have someone you want to have Tommy pull a prank call on?”). Today’s GMA features Tom DeLay, who explains that he will go on Dancing With The Stars to prove that “conservatives can have fun too.” Next week, the Today Show retaliates with Jeff Foxworthy.
