The show launched in January but the New York Post reports it never lived up to its ratings hype. Complicating the situation is a lawsuit filed against Povich alleging he made improper sexual advances against a woman on staff of his talk show.
A spokeswoman for MSNBC told UPI, however, the cancellation had nothing to do with the lawsuit.
The only time "Weekends with Maury & Connie" scored high in the ratings was the week after the sexual allegations were made public.
