The Steve Harvey Show
Steve Hightower is a has-been 1970s funk legend who is now a music teacher/Vice-principal at Booker T. Washington High School on Chicago's West Side. Budget cutbacks meant Steve also had to teach drama and art, much to his surprise. Cedric Robinson is a coach at the high school, and Steve's long-time best friend. The principal of Booker T. Washington High is Steve's former classmate, Regina Grier, who Steve affectionately calls "Piggy", due to the fact that she was overweight as an adolescent.
Steve seemingly meets his match in a pair of his students: Romeo Santana , a stylish, popular, self-absorbed ladies' man, and the equally vacuous Stanley Kuznocki, nicknamed Bullethead.
In season two, the show introduced a new character, a secretary named Lovita Jenkins, a woman who is fundamentally good in nature, but nonetheless, considerably unrefined in terms of disposition. Cedric and Lovita begin dating, and eventually marry and produce a child. The show also featured a succession of young actresses who served as female foils to Romeo and Bullethead; the longest-lasting of these was the overachieving, socially inept Lydia Gutman.
