    Why sugar coat it.Steve Harvey is in reruns.She may be number one in newbies but her numbers are not good compared to everyone else.She won’t even make the top 25 syndication shows.Its no secret local stations are not happy with her numbers and the price ABC wants.To many shake ups trying to find an audiences.Her 14 million dollar a year and production cost is not making ABC happy with her ratings.Her two year contract is in danger of being cancelled after this season.Only repeating what I read..
