If you can’t stand the paparazzi and celebrity gossip, this news won’t make you very happy. The tabloid TMZ TV show has been renewed for three more years, securing its future through the 2013-14 season.
While many people maintain that they don’t like the series, a lot of people are still watching it. It’s been one of the top syndicated daily shows since it began in 2007 and airs in 75% of the country. It ranks first in the 18-34 demographic and places second among the 18-49 and 25-54 groups.
TMZ is executive produced by Harry Levin and Jim Paratore, is produced by Telepictures Productions, and is distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television. It’s become a mainstay of many FOX stations, including those in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. The TMZ website was launched in 2005.
What do you think? Do you watch the TMZ show, even secretly? Is it better or worse than the typical celebrity gossip shows like Entertainment Tonight?
