"STEVE HARVEY" SOLD THROUGH 2016 TO NBC OWNED TELEVISION STATIONS

Daytime's #1 New Show in Key Women Demos, Produced by Endemol USA, Renewed for Additional Seasons in More Than 65% of the U.S.

CHICAGO, IL - June 12, 2013 - NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution announced today it has sold the hit daytime show "Steve Harvey" through 2016 to station groups across the country, including the NBC Owned Television Stations. "Steve Harvey," which has been a phenomenon in all key ratings benchmarks in its debut season and earned accolades including an Emmy(R) nomination for Outstanding Talk Show Host, has already been renewed for three additional seasons in more than 65% of the U.S. to date.

"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," said Ted Harbert, Chairman, NBC Broadcasting. "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 more.

"Steve Harvey's engaging, funny and warm style has been a hit with our audiences, and we couldn't be happier to continue our partnership with Steve and his great team," said Valari Staab, President, NBC Owned Television Stations. "'Steve Harvey' has strengthened our daytime lineups and proven to be a strong lead in to 'Ellen' and, in turn, our local newscasts."

"The sale of the show through 2016 is a testimony to its popularity, the immense talent of Steve Harvey and his ability to resonate with a broad and diverse daytime audience," said David Goldberg, Chairman and CEO, Endemol North America. "I am grateful to Steve, his dedicated and creative producers as well as NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution and our station partners around the country," he continued.

In its premiere season, "Steve Harvey" has become one of the most successful new first-run syndication launches in the past decade. In the May 2013 sweep, "Steve Harvey" was the #1 new first-run show with Women 18-49 and Women 25-54 nationally, and was the only new show to build over its lead-in and improve the year ago time period. Across the metered markets in May, "Steve Harvey" was up over its lead-in by +24% in households, and +25% with Women 25-54. Compared to the May 2012 (year ago) time period average, "Steve Harvey" showed +44% increases in households and was up +42% with Women 25-54.
