It appears that Steve Harvey is inching his way closer towards claiming the “King Of All Media” title as his new daytime television show, Steve Harvey, is pulling in big ratings.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the media mogul’s syndicated show landed at number two behind Katie Couric’s show, Katie, as the most watched talk show netting a 1.2 household rating/1.7 million viewers a day for the week of September 10.

Harvey’s influence on network television has also carried over to his side gig as Family Feud host, which has seen a 50 percent spike in their viewership in the last year.

Not bad for a rookie talk show host, who placed his bets in the hands of faith. "I've never done a talk show,” Harvey admitted to CNN in August. “I don't know how it's going to go, but I also know that God didn't bring me this far to leave me, so He causes things to happen."
