Ha. We didn't see that coming!

While TV was in repeats on the week before New Years, Maury hit its season ratings high in households AND total viewers.

He did so well that he even beat The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which was dropped to #31 for the week.

Wow. People really love their paternity scandals!

    WITH BAD ECONOMY TIMES, ALWAYS COMES MEDIOCRITY AND THIS IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHY PEOLPLE LIKE KENDRA AND KIM KARDASHIAN HAVE TV SHOWS, AND THEY HAVE HIGH AUDIENCE RATINGS. NO SURPRISE.

    Maury Povich should be in prison having his ass fucked on an hourly (or more frequently) basis. He's worse than Jerry Springer. At lease Jerry Springer focuses on adults (marginal and toothless as they may be). Maury glomps in on the most vulnerable (teen-aged traumatized girls); the most heinous (teen-aged traumatized boys); and the youngest and most innocent — children and infants. These kids will grow up to see their loser parents fight and, worse yet, wish they didn't exist, and Maury will be laughing all the way to the bank. Someone, please get Maury off the air and off to the place he deserves.

    Maury is more scandalious then Ellen. And ev1 wants to see/hear a story worse than their own. I “` personally don't watch either.



  7. 7

    Yeah, she is a terrible interviewer and her show has turned into Oprah. The audience is just a bunch of hens screaming for free sh*t.

    Real life is stranger than fiction, and besides being a genuinely nice guy, Maury capitalizes on that.

    I live in dorms and its on allll the time… and no one really knows why! We just sit and watch and make fun of all the trashy people that are on it.. So brutal! Id much rather watch Ellen!!

    Ellen needs to change the format of her show b/c to me it's no longer funny and has become monotonous and at times stupid, I end up watching Judge Judy instead,,, and what's sad is I find her funnier than Ellen.

    Ellen is so boring. She just kisses all of her guests asses.
    Maury is great and trashy, you start watching it you cant stop.



  12. 12

    yeah, most of the people who stay at home and don't work for a living/take care of a family and do NOTHING all day would probably prefer maury trash t.v. not that surprising.



  13. 13

    The kids were out of school for the holidays, this may have alot to with it. Plus ellen is kind of boring.

    Re: laurenanney – You are NOT part of the Maury demographic.
    Unless you peek, when you think no one is looking.

    Ellen's show isn't what it used to be. She isn't that funny anymore. She brags all the time how rich she is, she has more music than any other day time show and if I wanted to listen to music I would watch something else. I used to record it but I don't bother anymore, it's not worth it. I can see why her show is loosing viewers.



  18. 18

    Maybe it’s because the people that watch that trash TV are all unemployed and living off of welfare. They can relate to TRASH TV!



  19. 19

    I love Maury, lol.. its my guilty pleasure.. I love the lie detector tests..people are such idiots lmao they ALWAYS think they can beat them bwahaha

    I stopped watching Ellen when she subjected us to prolonged displays of her awful dancing. That'd get anyone to change the channel. She's boring anyway.

    I don't watch either show. I only get to watch daytime tv when its my day off, and let me tell you how disappointed I am in daytime tv. There is absolutely nothing good to watch!!! I end up watching the old reruns, like cheers on WGN or TBS. I find Ellen to be boring. Its the same old thing year after year, with a bunch of white 35 year old women in the audience, screaming, and trying to dance with Ellen. Those games she plays are stupid. I do have to admit though, when I am flipping channels, sometime I do stop on the Maury Povich show for a little while and watch, then I wake up and say what the hell am I doing, and move on to the old reruns.

    Re: MsJules – Cheers. Yeah, you couldn't WRITE the stuff of Maury any better. It's a vicarious snapshot of…take your pick.
