NEW YORK – Connie Chung and Maury Povich will have a little more free time after this weekend.
The married couple's short-lived half-hour talk show, "Weekends with Maury & Connie," will air its final edition Saturday at 10 p.m. EDT, the network has confirmed.
The weekly program, which premiered in January, returned Chung to the airwaves after her weeknight CNN series was canceled in 2003. This was the first time Chung and Povich had worked together on a national news program. But the venture never found an audience.
Povich continues as host of the longrunning syndicated talk show, "Maury."
The move comes just days after NBC News legal correspondent Dan Abrams was put in charge of MSNBC. Rick Kaplan, who was president of the cable network for two years, left last week.
