At Heart, the Maury Show Is Shakespearean

A priceless nugget from Bryan Curtis's profile in Grantland:

In its 16th season, Maury has become very, very simple. Nearly every episode can be boiled down to a single word. Lie. Baby. Affair. "When you get all classic, Shakespearean themes — love, hate, betrayal, lust—you have a chance of capturing an audience," Povich said.
