Since its debut in 2012, the show has been a hit. This season, it averaged 1.8 million viewers a week and was ranked among the top five talk shows along with Ellen DeGeneres, Maury and Dr. Phil. The show’s fate changed after he inked a deal with a new production company, IMG Original Content. Switching to IMG from NBC in 2016 gave Harvey a higher salary and more creative control. Though it seemed like a sweet deal, it lead to the demise of his talk show. After the final show airs in June, reruns will air throughout the summer.
