Maury Povich Brings In Young Viewers

| Filed under: TV NewsBaby BlabberSuper Seniors


It sounds like he loves his job and telling would-be dads, "You are NOT the father!"

Maury Povich is killing it in the ratings, especially among young people with a 44% increase in adults 18-34 from last year!

The show has also grown as a whole with the audience increasing by nearly 50% over the last year pulling in about 3.4 million viewers per episode!

Maury thinks it's because the show moved over to Stamford, Connecticut instead of New York. He explains:

“There’s just a lot of young people 18- 35…particularly up in Connecticut we have a lot of college kids. They may have a day off or it works with their schedule in school; I see sororities here, I see fraternities. That never happened in New York.…

"Because of the energy of the live audiences, I’ve responded. I think this is the best hosting I’ve done in years. Right now I see no end to [the show], and I also think it’s keeping me young. I’m 71 years old. It’s remarkable. I never thought that I would be on television at the age of 60.

Good for him — and for everyone! Who doesn't love a good paternity test revelation?

    I have yet to come across an episode of Maury that didn't involve a paternity test…He has some creative team!!!!!! Can't believe this shit is still on t.v and that people watch it..even crazier that ratings have gone up!!! The end of the world is near

    Probably has nothing to do with the 25%+ unemployment rate in this demographic? Now the 3 million graduating college students this summer can move to Stamford and become new viewers!

    Pure trash!! It is a sad day when these people get on tv and scream and shout about one being a slut, whore, baby daddy and on and on and then we show the poor kids sitting back stage most likely hoping someone will kidnap and take them away from their horrible lives..and Maury promotes this shit, he should be ashamed.

    He's 71 years old??? OMFG. I had no idea - dude looks good for his age! I love this show, but unfortunately I only get to catch the last 20 minutes everyday (you know, I gotta J-O-B). I gotta get Tivo :( I'm a huge dedicated fan and have been for years and years. It's about time fame caught up with him. I especially love his other episodes - like the beauty pagents with the she-males, and the Most Shocking Moments on TV episodes.

    OMFG I LOVE when the sluts bring on like 15 diff. guys and none of them are the father!! The slut runs off the stage each fucking time like she was positive he was the father! DIRTY SLUTS

    You are NOT using whitestrips

    I miss when he actually did other stuff on his show, like showing kids with amazing talents, or helping lost relatives reconnect.

    Who else is going to find little Tyrillequawn's father. Perez you are Not the father!

    Maury is trashy, but I loves it! It never fails to cheer me up and make me thankful that I have a great boyfriend, that would never cheat and an amazing little girl that will never need to be put through what some of those kids are put through!

  17. 17

    I can't believe he's that old! I didn't think he was nearly that age! I have to admit, I've starting watching Maury this year on my lunch breaks and I'm addicted! It's almost like watching the Jersey Shore. It's incredible seeing how people completely think differently than you- like it's ok to cheat on your wife 99 times and expect her to deal with. It's just so odd that some people think this behavior is not damaging to their partners and that's what keeps me watching.

    Perez, LOVE the countdowns you're doing on the shows! Makes it even more current. Go MAURY!!!

    I think its cus of the economy and people r gettin their cable cut off so they gotta watch whats on and in daytime tv talk shows, and this one in this stime slot is like one of the more interesting things thats on…………somewhat

  20. 20

    What? 71??? Really?!!?! i thought he was in his late 50's. He's look the same to me for years!

  21. 21

    WTF MAURY IS 71? weird, had no idea

  22. 22

    Here's a classic case of a man who once had talent and
    integrity and could have used them for good effect but,
    instead, chose the cheap and easy way by opting for
    trash TV. How sad - and just how many times a week
    can people be expected to watch these screamfests
    about who is or is not the REAL father of the pathetic
    losers who appear on his programme? The Maury Povich
    show has become a classic bore.

    Aw yes, the vaunted 18-34 year olds. Our future leaders and staunch Pig Face readers. God help us all.

  25. 25

    That was my favorite show when i was like 7-10 yrs old. Guess that explains a lot about me. I'm glad he's still on. But some people forget paternity tests arent all of it. Dont forget transvestite make-overs, teen parents, teen's with attitude problems, and people facing death and tragedies!

  26. 26

    Yes this is what we get to praise in the wake of growing unemployment.

    I love Maury! Watch him everyday!
