Maury Povich Brings In Young Viewers


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├óΓé¼Γäóve responded. I think this is the best hosting I├óΓé¼Γäóve done in years. Right now I see no end to [the show], and I also think it├óΓé¼Γäós keeping me young. I├óΓé¼Γäóm 71 years old. It├óΓé¼Γäós remarkable. I never thought that I would be on television at the age of 60.├óΓé¼┬¥

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