Not for me

A presenter that appears to be unbiased.

Everything else!

Maury is one of those American talk shows that is similar to the likes of Jerry Springer, but without as much of the drama or fighting. And in my own humble opinion, it is also just like a car crash - you don’t really want to watch it, but something in you makes you. Shown in the UK on the Sky/...

Unfortunately, as Maury Povitch is on Cable & Satellite TV I tend to miss a lot of his shows as I forget they are on, but when I do happen to watch them, they are great! He is undisputably the best chat show host around. His shows can be funny, sad, or thought provoking and they always come...

a bit similar to Jerry

At first, when I watched Maury Povich, I thought it was not too bad. Th story's headlines (such as "Is it a men or a women?", or "Who is my Daddy"?) were slightly different from Jerry Springer (who I also used to like, well for a few months...). The chat host Maury also seem to be more or less...

“Ugh No Thanks”

Come on, he's NOT Jerry Springer

Waste of time; we have too many shows like this

No matter how I try to see this guy in a positive light, his image (and name) never ceases to bring me back to his show's counterpart Jerry Springer. I must admit his shows are not bad. And at least he doesn't put on a 2-faced fake attitude by ending the show on a Final Thought. Also, at least he...

Not many people have heard of him in UK

Maury Povich comes up on UK Living in regular slots. I really enjoy it, purely because it is less eccentric than shows like Jerry Springer, yet still has a lot of interesting things to say. Maury is a middle-aged male chat show host - he is polite, but not afraid to pass personal judgement - I...

I really enjoyed this show. The difference between a good chat show and a bad chat show in my opinion is the presenter, no matter how good the guests are or how interesting the subject if a presenter is irratating we take an instant dislike to the show. Maury Povich is definately one the better...

“The new king of chat shows?”

published 07/07/2000

Many people have been starting to suggest that Maury Povich has, or will soon, become the new King of Chat Shows, stealing Jerry Springer's long-worn crown. For me, it's a toss-up between the two. In terms of the content of the show, Maury is not quite so 'harsh' in terms of the subjects. We...

“Gerry who????????”

published 29/07/2000

genuine

?????????

Maury can only be described as a classy Gerry Springer. He has a way with people which allows him to put them at their ease in front of millions of viewers. He covers the usual topics - teens uphappy at school, makeovers etc yet is not monotonous at all. He generally does seem sincere unlike many...

Hard hitting Stories

occasionally sill stories/guests

I have watched Maury Povich for a couple of years now and i have found it at times enjoyable to watch and at others very upsetting;this is mainy because of the different show types and guests. The best thing about this chat show host is that depending on the topic of the show you can be moved to...

None

Maury Povich is much better than any other chat show host in the world! All the issues he raises are well known in every area of the world. He tackles things like Troublesome Teens, and moms that dress too sexy for their children. It's all true, unlike Jerry Springer, or Trisha, where the people...

“Maury=Legend”

published 09/07/2000

What a man Maury is. he is witty, yet thought provoking. The content of the show is superb with a good mix of serious and downright hilarious. One of the recent shows was "I caught you cheating on hidden camera". This was a superb topic where couples were brought to the show because they...

“Better than the rest!”

Stunning and thought provoking

Only on UK Living

Maury Povich has to be without a doubt the new King of Chat Shows. Whereas his competetiors, such as Sally, Jenny Jones and Jerry seem to be focusing more on tacky topics, the subjects covered by Maury are thought-provoking and emotional. Okay, so he too covers troubled teens, but it's the way...

Some toipcs are a bit 'lightweight'

Maury Povich is one of the better satellite talk shows (in fact as a matter of fact I have it on in the background at this present time) which alternates between thought provoking discussion or disclosure, (Are You The Father Of My Child?) humour, (Man or Woman?) and entertainment programs (Child...
