In the hour long daily episodes Maury specialises in over-the-top, often crass dysfunctional family drama like Jerry Springer, and often employs lie detector tests and paternity tests as Maury "unveils" the results on the air of who the father of someone's baby really is.
Maury also does makeover shows and interview shows from time to time, with guests like NeNe Leakes.
Maury, hosted by Maury Povich, is filled with some chair throwing, a lot of screaming, studio guests who want to fight, a circus-like studio audience screaming for blood and who vocally make their approval or displeasure known about the various in-studio guests and their antics.
In America Maury, executive produced by Paul Faulhaber is in its 22nd season.
South African viewers on SowetoTV who tune in for the trashy yet compelling tabloid talk show will be seeing the episodes from 2010, or the 20th season of Maury.
