‘TMZ Live’ Renewed Through 2017 on Fox TV Stations

Syndie chat show originated as a digital program on TMZ's website

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.”
