‘Maury’ is leaving the realm of daytime talk shows after 30 years
Over thirty years is a good race, but it’s still the end of an era: According to Deadline, Maury, the syndicated daytime talk show hosted by Maury Povich, is coming to an end. At the end of the current season, that will be it for the often trashy program, which has long tackled burning issues in often sinister ways. It’s unclear if it’s been canceled or if Povich has simply decided to retire, but that’s what he will do when he’s no longer having to dominate one of TV’s craziest shows. .
Formerly the tabloid news show host A topical matterPovich moved on to his own show in 1991. During his early years he was called The Maury Povich Show. In 1998 the title was shortened to simply Maury. In its three decades, a lot has happened. He unearthed a double medical oddity. He got into feuds with David Letterman. He planted his flag on Father’s Day, trying to become a staple of Father’s Day.
Maury isn’t the only recent victim of the day. It’s been a bloodbath, with the removal of NBCUniversal Judge JerrySony doing the same for The good dish and Nick Cannon. The Wendy Williams Show will be transformed into Sherri, hosted by Sherri Shepherd, but that’s because Williams had to step down from her long-running show due to health issues. Anyway, farewell, Mr. Povich. The scene you helped change wouldn’t be the same without you.
