Exclusive: MSNBC Axes Maury & Connie (Coulter-hater Connie Cancelled!)
TV Newser ^ | 6/10/06 | Brian Stelter

Posted on 06/10/2006 6:36:35 PM PDT by frankjr

MSNBC's "Weekends with Maury & Connie" is being cancelled, TVNewser has learned. The program, hosted by Maury Povich and Connie Chung, will end its run next week. The husband and wife team taped their second-to-last show on Friday.

"Weekends" launched almost exactly six months ago, on January 7, 2006. It launched to quite a bit of fanfare, and it aired four times a weekend (twice on Saturday and twice on Sunday) but it never seemed to find an audience. There's no word on whether Maury, Connie, or EP Lizz Winstead will have a future role at MSNBC...

I watched 5 minutes of this. It was just awful. It did not have a chance, which is rather heartening when I think about it.

Never heard of their show and wouldn't have watched it anyway. It's a miracle that these two under-talented people could find work anywhere, even on liberal TV.

Laura Ingraham was taking bets on when this piece of nonsense would be canceled. She may have given it a few more months...

It depends. Can they find another children's charity to loot so they can pay her salary?

This explains why Chung attacked Ann Coulter. It was her last chance to impress her bosses and keep her job. Chung needs to look at it this way. She'll be doing damage to President Bush's unemployment numbers when she gets in line on Monday. LOL!

I wonder with the Clintonista Kaplan leaving if they will be next? And maybe Scarbourugh who is a big RINO and Bush hater in my book will follow. I was very disappointed in the way he drank the Kool Aid and tried to blame all of the Katrina stuff on Bush.

I used to switch over to MSNBC from Fox on Saturday -- when the money show came on at 10 on Fox. I couldn't never get into money and finances and stocks and all. MSNBC, at least was up on the news. Then they put these two on. Goodbye MSNBC --- Hello weather channel!

These two were just too cutsie. Who was the brain thinking that it could be a good format?

I never watched their show. Laura Ingraham has been pounding them pretty hard lately.
I remember watching Connie years ago when I was stationed at Quantico. She must have been on some local DC station. This would have been the early '70s.

Excellent news. Seems like the general public is seeking more adult programs and viewpoints. These superficial lefties can't generate an audience large enough to sustain the programming. I am getting my hopes up that perhaps Americans are finally getting it!

The only time I saw the show was this morning for the last 3 or 4 minutes. If I'd known it was being cancelled, it would have been an enjoyable experience.

I was just watching Glenn Beck a few minutes ago. I really enjoy his TV show...better than the radio show.
He sure did put the hammer down on that idiot Lieutenant from Hawaii's father. I almost jumped up and cheered.

They took some parting pot shots at Ann Coulter...as Ann's book soars on the best seller list, their piece of crap cable garbage was watched by NO ONE and is being cancelled by the lowest rated cable news network around!

BWA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

What say you, Dick??

Don't know if it's true but read that Olberwomann's ratings are higher than Anderson Cooper.

Caught that segment of Beck's show. He really let the father of the refusnik have it with both barrels.

He's had some great segments and hopefully will get good ratings.

Unfortunately, the Spitter and the Moonbat are probably not going anywhere. Scarborough's got a better chance of getting the axe. Let's hope it happens soon.

Now, if only Fox would give the hook to John Kasich ...

I predicted this weeks ago. Bush hating Opie Olberman is next since his protector Kaplan got the axe last week. MSNBC has become an embarrassment to honest journalism.

I find myself watching Beck's show more and more and I agree, it is better than his radio show.

One of the networks or maybe CNN will probably pick up Connie Chung, anyway. These nasty old leftist media skanks never go away. They just change sets every couple of years. Maury can always fall back on his specialty, exploiting troubled kids for ratings by having them flash their boobs and fight each other on camera.

I've heard Glenn Beck's TV show is good (his radio show, IMO, is very hit-or-miss), but I refuse to watch CNN for any reason. I'm stunned that his show has lasted as long as it has on CNN - I'm sure the leftists launched their usual hate mail campaign, and I figured he'd get broomed within a couple of weeks.

It could be said that nothing on MSNBC has seemed to find an audience.

Connie Chung has fallen very hard from her "glory" days. Perhaps Katie will follow.

It must have been Rick Kaplan. He's canned and within just a few days, Maury & Connie are gone too. With Kaplan gone, I wonder who made the decision? Imus?

Oh it found an audience, but it turns out that it was only about three people.
