Povich has pioneered crass, ridiculously entertaining television since his days on 'A Current Affair' in the 80s; his current show is a shameless 'Jerry Springer' knockoff featuring arguing couples, paternity tests, and generally the worst human nature has to offer, every day of the week. These are our choices for the Most Ridiculous 'Maury' Moments of 2010. Watch the videos, vote on your favorite, and then shower thoroughly.

A Man Is Actually NOT the Father of a Child on 'Maury' (VIDEO)

A Man Is Actually NOT the Father of a Child on 'Maury'Well, all good things must come to an end. Or, all bad things must come to an end. Either way, something is coming to an end here. Since we started covering 'Maury' (weekdays, syndicated) on TV Squad, we've had a perfect, unbroken 100% success rate. Every single episode involved a deadbeat dad who claimed that he was not the father of a woman's child. Then, the dad would take a paternity test -- and every single time, it turned out that the man was the baby's father.

But no more! True, Wendell -- the guest on the latest episode -- seems like the perfect candidate to be a deadbeat dad. He slept with a woman a couple of times, and then she got pregnant. Next, he completely disappeared -- only returning once, on Mother's Day, when he ate all the food in the woman's house, including the baby snacks.

Like every other 'Maury' guest, Wendell says there's no way he could be the father. But then, the results of the paternity test come back, and ... he's actually not the father. Amazing! This has never happened before on 'Maury'! We feel like balloons and streamers should have come down from the ceiling.

Maury's Guest Says That She's a 'Dime Piece' -- Huh?  Say What Now?Do you know what a "Dime Piece" means, slang-wise? Think about it for a second. We'll be back with the answer at the end of this column.

Anyhow, where were we? So here we are with the latest episode of 'Maury' (weekdays, syndicated). On the new episode, host Maury Povich talks with a young woman whose man is cheating on her with a teenage girl. Michelle is very angry with her fiancée, and with the teenage girl who has been messing around with her fiancée. She is shocked! Very shocked! Michelle is stunned by the fact that anyone could ever reject her.

"He ain't gonna leave me for her!" Michelle says. Then she gets up and starts dancing. "Baby, look at you and look at me!"

While dancing in front of the suddenly hooting crowd, Michelle has this to say -- "Honey, I'm a 'dime piece,' baby!" Then she jiggles around on the stage some more.

So, what is a "Dime Piece"? It's kind of obvious if you think about it for a second. Or not. Anyway, your answer is coming right after the jump ...

Tax Season Causes People to Cheat on 'Maury' (VIDEO)

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jul 14th 2010 7:54PM
More money, more problems.

Maria and Eugene faced off on 'Maury' (weekdays, syndicated) because Eugene had been cheating on Maria. He'd been staying out all night and Maria just knew that he had been up to something. "I'm not down with that,' Maria said. "Cause you got a bed at home with mama and I'll take care of him."

When Povich innocently asked Maria what's the worst season for her, he got an earful. "Tax time," Maria said. "Cause when you get a little money in your pocket, you get to flirtin' around and the whores come flockin.' More money, more problems."

"I never heard of this, this is really good," Povich said.

So they administered a lie detector test to Eugene and asked him the question, "Do you cheat on Maria during tax season?"

The answer -- well, let's just say that if you raise taxes, the adultery rate in this country might drop. Congress, are you listening?

An Angry Woman Flies Across the Stage on 'Maury' (VIDEO)

An Angry Woman Flies Across the Stage on 'Maury'It's mother versus mother on 'Maury' (weekdays, syndicated). Of course, since this is an episode of 'Maury,' the conflict is entirely paternity suit-based. Settle back in your chair for a second while we explain.

First, a girl named Jasmine claims that she gave up her virginity to a man called "M-Dot." And naturally, M-Dot says that he is not the father of the child. But because this is 'Maury,' we're going to break down their claims as follows ... Chances that M-Dot is the dad: 100%. Chances that he's not the dad: 0%.

Sure enough, the results of the test come back, and M-Dot is the dad. But meanwhile, as the test results are coming out, Jasmine is busy getting in a fight with M-Dot's mom.

M-Dot's mother Tina has come on the show to defend the supposed "honor" of her son. So she screams clever things about Jasmine -- such as, for example, "She's a liar!" ... Good one! Then, Tina and Jasmine just start cursing at each other.

So far, this is all pretty much par for the course. But then, Jasmine attempts a flying jump-attack across the stage at Tina. It just sort of comes out of nowhere. Impressive! We're used to fighting on this show, but Jasmine shows some unexpected 'Matrix'-style kung fu skills.

A Cheating Fiancée Is Caught on Tape on 'Maury' (VIDEO)

A Cheating Fiancée Is Caught on Tape on 'Maury'Let us pause now to appreciate the mighty works of mankind. Man has built the enormous pyramids, scaled the heights of Mount Everest, even walked on the surface of the moon. But on the negative side of the equation, mankind has also created 'Maury' (weekdays, syndicated) -- the daily talk show that exposes cheating fiancées to the jeers and boos of the audience.

And so, here we go again. Nicole thinks that her fiancée Josh is cheating on her. Josh vehemently denies that this is the case. Oh, simple, foolish Josh.

In order to test him, Maury sticks Josh in the green room, where he is approached by a sexy female "decoy." Josh not only instantly admits to cheating on Nicole, but then he starts hitting on the decoy. "You have pretty eyes," he says to her. Oh, Josh -- you idiot.

It gets worse from there. Josh then invites the decoy to join him in a hot tub. "What are you gonna wear in the hot tub?" she asks. " ... Nothing," he replies. Yuck!

Dropping Trousers and Sniffing Private Parts on 'Maury'On today's 'Maury' (weekdays, syndicated), a young woman named Michelle faces the ultimate question. Did her boyfriend Terrill cheat on her or not? Good question! And haven't we all asked ourselves that question from time to time? Or, well, maybe we haven't.

Michelle says that she has come up with a foolproof way to tell if her man has been cheating on her. She makes him drop his trousers when he gets home -- and then she smells his private parts. Genius! Pure genius. No way that test could ever fail! Next, Michelle and Terrill sort of demonstrate the test, plus they curse at each other a lot.

Then, inevitably. we move on to finding out that Terrill has cheated on Michelle, as the audience screams and boos. It's all par for the course on 'Maury.'

Cursing and Parenthood on 'Maury' (VIDEO)

Cursing and Parenthood on 'Maury'There's a paternity test on 'Maury' (weekdays, syndicated). This should come as no surprise to anyone who's ever watched the show before, since basically the entire function of 'Maury' is to display televised paternity tests. In fact, the show may as well just be retitled 'Paternity Test! -- The Series.'

On the latest episode, Maury welcomes 14-year-old Naquita, one of the youngest teen mothers he's ever had on the air. Naquita is joined by highly displeased grandmother Michelle, and the potential 17-year-old father, whose name is Xavier. Of course, Xavier confidently predicts that there is "no way" that he is the baby's daddy. One quick smash-cut later, and it is just as obviously revealed that Xavier ... is the baby's father.

Maury Povich investigates peach and pickle phobias

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 16th 2009 5:04PM
I'll confess I can't stand peaches. I like the taste, but just thinking about touching the fuzz makes me shiver. But I don't think I would run out of the room if someone showed me a picture of one. But in one of the clips below from Maury, a man does just that.

And he's not the only one who has these phobias. Seems there are a lot more people out there who are afraid of things like balloons, chickens, and pickles than we thought. Though I wonder if any of these are put-ons. (Urlesque has more.)

Ricki Lake Minisodes might be high art, right?

by Eliot Glazer, posted Jul 1st 2009 11:03AM
go ricki lakeThe late eighties and early-to-mid nineties brought out some of the filthiest, bottom-feeding talk shows our country has ever seen. From Morton Downey Jr. and Sally Jesse Raphael to Jerry Springer and Maury Povich, it was the era when "trash TV" became a symbol of a country's swift spiral down one giant cultural toilet in opposition to people like Larry King and Oprah Winfrey, who effortlessly made interviews with, like, Fran Drescher come off looking like Masterpiece Theater.

Around the latter half of the "boom" came Ricki Lake, the formerly obese star of Hairspray (no, seriously, that was basically her résumé), with a show that combined the usual elements of trashy talk (read: "freaks") with something impossibly dumber yet: catchphrases. Unlike today, when it takes weeks to months for squawk-boxes to latch onto cultural buzzwords like "metrosexual" and "baby daddy," Ricki Lake was trotting out episode "subjects" like "You're not all that!" and "Dump that zero and get yourself a hero!"

Naturally, she was a smash.

Syndicated Deal or No Deal renewed and relocated

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 30th 2009 8:02PM
Deal or No DealMaybe my home town should offer tax incentives to the networks. It's working for Connecticut. Not only did NBC announce that the half-hour syndicated version of Deal or No Deal is returning for a second season with host Howie Mandel, but it will be relocating and filming in Connecticut.

I guess with a game show it doesn't matter where you film since it's the same set all the time, but are there as many incredibly gorgeous chicks in Connecticut as there are in California? Isn't Cali where they all go to see their dreams of being an actress reduced to standing on a stage next to a briefcase?
