How Much Does Steve Harvey Really Make From Family Feud?
Lifestyle - News
Thanks to his quick wit and warm personality, Steve Harvey has been in high demand for television gigs over the years, whether he's hosting, acting, producing, or writing. However, most people are familiar with Harvey as the host of the popular game show "Family Feud," but how much money does he make from it?
The game show "Family Feud," which debuted in 1976, sets two groups against each other in a game of guessing the most popular responses to random questions ‌for cash. Steve Harvey took over as host of "Family Feud" in 2010 and continues to do so today, surpassing Richard Dawson as the longest-serving host.
Given his success on "Family Feud," it's no surprise that Harvey earns a lot of money as a host, averaging $20,000 every 30-minute episode. When compared to original presenter Dawson, who was paid $500,000 per season, Harvey earned nearly $3.6 million for Season 23, which included 180 episodes.
