Maury Povich Signs on For Three More Years With NBC Universal


Bad news for deadbeat dads and hot-in-the-tail girls. Broadcast & Cable is reporting Maury, the long-running, trash-tacular, daytime chatfest, has been renewed for three more years by NBCUniversal. In a released statement, Ted Harbert, NBC Broadcasting Chairman, stated:


Maury's hard work and endearing personality combined with the fantastic production team behind the scenes is what draws millions of loyal viewers year after year.

Povich has hosted the self-titled talk show since 1998. Maury recently came in fifth among syndicated talk shows during February Sweeps, but was No. 1 among women 18-49 and W18-34, according to B&S.
