TMZ’s hourlong syndicated program “TMZ Live” has been renewed through 2017 on Fox Television Stations.

Harvey Levin and his team set out to create, develop and refine a completely new genre of show, incubating it as a live Internet based show and then successfully transitioning it to television,” said Ken Werner, prez of Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution. “‘TMZ Live’ has emerged as a top-ranked talk show in the Fox markets among both Women 25-54 and Adults 25-54 and has proven its versatility, pairing successfully with other talk shows, news, magazines and court shows.”

“TMZ Live” initially launched as a digital series streamed on TMZ’s website before heading to the syndicated market in 2012. The show features TMZ employees chatting in the office about celeb gossip topics-du-jour. A version of “TMZ Live” still streams online, complementing the syndicated television property.

“We’re producing ‘TMZ Live’ as a show that bridges the gap between broadcast and digital, using assets from both,” exec producer Levin said. “It’s not TV and it’s not the Internet. It’s a blend.”
