'Weekends with Maury & Connie' canceled

  |   June 12, 2006 at 4:00 PM
NEW YORK, June 12 (UPI) -- MSNBC Monday confirmed "Weekends with Maury & Connie," featuring Maury Povich and Connie Chung, ends its run Friday.

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.
