I'm surprised that The Steve Harvey Show ran for an incredible seven seasons on the WB before it was cancelled back here in February of 2002. This was a very funny show as we watched as 70's band leader of his own funk musical group and music teacher Steve Hightower(played by Steve Harvey) go through the motions and who always tries to win the hand of his lost love Regina "Piggy" Grier(who was the principal in charge at Booker T. Washington High School played by Wendy Raquel Robinson)which most of times ends up with hilarious results alongside his partner the physical education teacher and head football coach Sedrick Washington(played by Cedric The Entertainer)who was always in a jam or two either with their co-workers or other female encounters. However,the show had two bumbling students Romeo and Bullethead who were always on Mr. Hightower's last nerve and often pull pranks on him. However,the show did have a relationship between Coach Robinson and the head secretary(played by Terri Vaughn)who during the shows' initial run got married and started a family. As for Mr. Hightower and Ms. Grier(the school principal),they had their ups and downs too,but it wasn't until the shows' final episode when she not only dumped his behind,but got him fired from his job.....that's cold.

As for the students Romeo and Bullethead,well in the final episode they FINALLY graduated from high school after seven years stuck looking at Mr. Hightower and Ms. Grier.

The Steve Harvey Show knew to quit when they were ahead,but in all aspects it was a very funny and hilarious show with a message in between some of the segments. Nowadays the show is in reruns and can be seen across the country and on Superstation WGN in Chicago and Superstation TBS.
