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 didn't either, LOL! Sorry I didn't miss it. Looks like more light-headed leftist claptrap.
As it was when Connie got axed from the Rather show,
"I'm going to my family and have some babies"
Well, sweetie, time to spread wide once again!
I woke up to this show after falling asleep on the couch and thought I was still dreaming. These two knuckleheads were trying to be a pro and con for current events but would have very little substance to add , then pat each other on the leg or make goo goo eyes at each other in between. All she could say were dumb one liners. The funniest thing is that a few weeks later MADTV did a skit on their show and it was such a good parody that I thought I was watching it again! Adios Connie- Maury has a day job at least.
Bobbie Lee does Connie Chung better than Connie Chung does. This should make for some fun skits on Mad TV :)
I never was much into Hannity and Colmes anyway.
I like the lighthearted humorous approach that GB takes. I wonder if he'll do Moron Trivia on TV when football season starts. I'm guessing he will NOT. IMHO, that is the most entertaining thing he does on the radio. I'm no football fan but sure do enjoy Moron Trivia.
I used to like his interviews with Stephen Hawking, too, but haven't heard one of those for a long time.
Thanks! Wish I'd had seen a few seconds of it so I could laugh about it now!
Helping promiscious single mother's and their parade of sex partners get their 15 minutes on TV.
And sending unruly teens to boot camp.
Just between you and me, Connie, you're a bitch.
Just whisper that in her ear, she wont tell a soul! LOL
you need both hands to count everyone who watches countdown... that's good for PMSNBC
They had a show?
I never knew this show even existed. Anonymity, thy name is MSNBC.
"The Soup" is reporting that three cameramen died while filming that show.
Losers. Diverse, but LOSERS!!!
That, and embarrassment.
I surfed to one of their shows and after I heard Connie use the word quagmire in a sentence twice, I did my standard eye roll and moved on...
Why do they pay these people to... oh never mind.
Good riddance of leftist trash.
chung looks like Bobby from Mad TV.
LOL! Maybe she'll divorce him now...
Awkward you say? Especially since he's being sued for sexual harrassment for having affairs with several women he worked with....must be difficult to work side by side with the man who betrayed you. ROFLMAO!!!
Is that true? Who would want to have an affair or an encounter with him? I mean, YUCK.
Hildy. Come back here and answer me.
I CANNOT believe women would want him.
He's nasty gross. YUCK.
You know his Dad was a very well respected writer. My Father knew him and adored him. I actually met him once. His name was Shirley Povitch (Yes, Shirley). I'm sure he'd be mortified at what his son has become.
WOW. I shouldn't be surrpised that you dad knew his dad.
Your dad was quite the man. I wish I could have known him.
But tell me, are women actually suing him?
Did they reject his advances?
I cannot imagine wanting him. YUCK.
Producer claims affair with star; porn, booze rife on set of show
Bianca Nardi has filed suit against bosses of Maury Povich show.
A lawsuit teeming with tawdry details you definitely won't be seeing on the next "Maury" accuses talk-show host Maury Povich of cheating on his TV newswoman wife Connie Chung with an underling. The bombshell legal filing claims Povich, 67, has been tangled in a "long time, intimate and sexual relationship" with 47-year-old producer Donna Ingber - and calls the talk show set a "Peyton Place" rife with porn and booze.
The alleged affair "was common knowledge to all," and Ingber was known as "Maury's girl," claims the $100 million suit, filed yesterday in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Bianca Nardi, a 28-year-old producer who has been with the show since 2000, slammed her bosses with the legal action - charging she was subject to humiliating and exploitative treatment behind the scenes.
The suit charges "Maury" was a classic hostile work environment "where hostility, intimidation, humiliation, ridicule, sexual harassment, as well as alcohol use, was explicit, rampant, pervasive and was condoned."
Povich is not accused of any harassing behavior himself - but the suit claims he, his production company and NBC should have known about the alleged problems and stopped them.
The most damaging details in the suit for Povich focus on his alleged affair with Ingber, a married mother of 12-year-old twins who supposedly made drunken late-night phone calls to Nardi about her sex life with the talk-show host and other men, the suit alleges.
The accusations threatened to tarnish the golden couple image of Povich and Chung, who wed in 1984, have a 10-year-old son and live in luxury in the Dakota apartment building on the upper West Side.
Reached at home, Chung, 59, declined comment yesterday.
Whoa! Thanks for the posting.
Neither did I
Come to think of it, I did not know they still existed.
Nor did I care.
Hillarii as The Nutcracker.
Wonder if IMUS' sudden attack of sanity could be related to the fact that a new man in charge may not put up with idiotic attacks on the President.
Wouldn't it be funny if they made Chung a sidekick for Couric!!! Talk about a catfight!
6 months ago, I was saying this show wouldn't last more than 6 months.
The only time I have heard about this show was The Soup.. Man everytime that Joel McHale talks about a show it gets cancelled..
LOL. It takes more time to make a baby than it did to cancel Phil. Most babies have more common sense at birth than Phil has after 60 years too.
The ultimate sleazy PC couple: Bam!
Maury can continue to do his lite version of the trashy Springer.
MSNBC is in its death throes since MS announced it would stop the subsidy.
Now the shows are jockeying to see which one (if any) will be kept by CNBC.
Wasn't there a rumor a few weeks about that Maury was humpin his assistant?
He has several sexual harrassment suits going. And yes, the word is that he had a long time mistress.
The Soup rocks!
I remember when that ass-clown Olbermann couldn't buy a jock-jock job in Los Angeles...LA sports fans threw him out years ago...
We knew about his show up here in Toronto. His stupid mug was plastered on the sides of buses and seemed to be everywhere for a while. MSNBC seemed to be spending a lot on ads to let Canadians know. How the ad genuises justified that I have no idea since its a market outside the US and couldn't possibly be measured by US ratings in any way. Fortunately it didn't last too long. :)
