Marc Juris

Title: EVP/GM, truTV

Years in Cable: 15

Education: Syracuse University

Why Him? Under Juris’ leadership, truTV has left its Court TV days in the dust and is now a top 10 network in primetime men 18-49. He oversaw a steady stream of hit launches, marking the network’s highest ratings ever this summer. Original shows scoring big include “Hardcore Pawn,” “Operation Repo,” “South Beach Tow” and “World’s Dumbest…”

Yuk Yuk: Showman Juris wowed the crowd at his April Upfront. He’s more serious about expanding truTV’s original series, including laugh-fest “Impractical Jokers,” “Semi-Pro” and “Breaking It Big.”

Also slated: A project about the California DMW from Katalyst, owned by Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg.

Year Ahead: truTV has been on a roll, and its median viewer age has dropped more than five years since 2008, to 43.3. We call that momentum. ?
