STEVE WILKOS CELEBRATES HIS 1000TH EPISODE

Steve Heads Home to Chicago Where He Broke Ground as a Talk Show Host, and Then To Stamford Where He Reflects On the Memorable Moments That Made His Show the Success That It Is

STAMFORD, CT - November 22, 2013 - Steve Wilkos celebrates his 1000th episode Friday, November 22nd, 2013, by taking a look back at some of the unforgettable and newsworthy moments of his talk show. In this one-hour retrospect, Steve will look back at the shows happy endings, funny instances, craziest moments, intense reactions, biggest liars, ultimate confessions and lastly, the greatest chair throws, which has become Wilkos' trademark move when frustrated at a situation on stage.

The show will start with Steve back in his hometown of Chicago, IL, where it all began - from his time in the Chicago Police Department, to his stint as Head of Security on "The Jerry Springer Show," to the inception of his own talk show, "The Steve Wilkos Show," in 2007. Steve will then take us on his whirlwind journey to Stamford, CT, where the show relocated to in 2009, and now filming its 7th season.

As a special thank you to "The Steve Wilkos Show's" dedicated staff, Wilkos will bring everyone on stage to thank them for their role in helping to reach this milestone. Wilkos also gets a shocking surprise of his own when a very special guest makes an appearance to congratulate him.

The sixth season of "The Steve Wilkos Show" became its highest rated season with rating increases of +15% among Households and +11% among Women 25-54 versus the prior season. As a result, "The Steve Wilkos Show" had the most year-to-year growth amongst all syndicated talk shows. This is not a new trend as "The Steve Wilkos Show" has seen yearly ratings increase. Since its premiere season of 2007-08, the show has delivered +67% Households and +67% Women 25-54 growth.

"The Steve Wilkos Show" is distributed in national syndication by NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution and produced by Stamford Media Center Productions, the same production team behind several long-running and successful NBCU talk shows including "Maury," "The Jerry Springer Show" and "Trisha Goddard."
