Fox Stations Renew 'TMZ Live' B&C

The live-chat and celebrity news program "TMZ Live" has been renewed by Fox Television Stations through the 2016-17 season, B&C reports.

"This deal to extend 'TMZ Live' on the Fox Stations is the culmination of an extremely successful strategic rollout," said Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution President Ken Werner in a statement. "'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" began online on TMZ.com and as a live streaming webcast on UStream, the story notes. It branched out to broadcast with a test in March 2012 on Fox's KTTV-TV in Los Angeles.

The show features Harvey Levin along with a number of TMZ staffers, including Levin's left-hand man, Charles Latibeaudiere.
