Her show, with hubby Maury Povitch, Weekends with Maury and Connie , which just rapped up it's six-month run ended with Connie infamously singing on a piano a remake of Thanks for the Memories grossly off key. It get the show which never really took off ratings wise very popular which was talked about on Entertainment Tonight , USA TODAY and several other news outlets. A reported 500,000 people downloaded her singing on YOUTUBE.com . Much more than the series ever got in veiwers.
Connie on her awful rendition of 'Thanks for the Memories': I was shocked, I mean really shocked, I didn't expect it at all. (Connie on the attention it attracted) I meant it as a private joke for our two viewers. Honestly, if you had been a regular viewer, then you would have known that this was a giant joke. The deal is that I can sing perfectly off-key! (On her ability to sing) Despite her long career as a network newswoman, Chung insisted that her fans know she has "a crazy side."
