STAMFORD — You can stick a fork in Maury’s ass because he’s done. After three decades of unveiling on-air paternity test results, the 83-year-old talk show host has reached his cessation. We’ll no longer hear his trademark catchphrase, “You are NOT the father!” Maury was ready to call it quits a few years ago. But television ratings were so high, network officials talked him out of it. “Six years ago when I was ready to retire, my NBCUniversal family asked me to continue the show,” Maury said in a statement. “Even though I told them I was ready for assisted living, out of loyalty to NBCUniversal and my more than 100 staff and crew members, Tracie Wilson and I agreed to one more deal. I’m so proud of my relationship with NBCUniversal and all those who worked on the ‘Maury Show.’ But as I occasionally tell my guests on ‘Maury,’ ‘Enough, already!'”
Tracie, executive vice president of NBCUniversal, echoed a similar sentiment. “Maury and I decided two years ago that this season would be the farewell season for the show,” she explained. “And while his retirement is bittersweet, we are so happy for him to be able to spend more time on the golf course. Maury is a television icon, a pop culture legend and we couldn’t be more proud to have been a part of his incredible career.”
Maury’s show debuted in September 1991.
His guests are typically penurious, nescient and ghetto.
They’re also poster children for unprotected sex.
A black chick once had 34 n*ggas tested for one kid.
