The Jerry Springer Show is ostensibly a talk show where troubled or dysfunctional families come to discuss their problems before a studio audience so that the audience or host can offer suggestions on what can be done to resolve their situations. In actuality, the show has come to epitomize the so-called "trash TV talk show"[1], as each episode of the show focuses on topics such as adultery, bestiality[2], divorce, homophobia, homosexuality, incest, infidelity, pornography, racism, or transvestism and continues to take pride in its infamous image. At one point, the show proudly boasted that it was voted the "Worst TV Show Ever" by TV Guide magazine. Currently, the show slogan is "an hour of your life you'll never get back". A dysfunctional family is a family in which conflict, misbehavior and even abuse on the part of individual members of the family occur continually, leading other members to accommodate such actions. ...

History

1990s

The Jerry Springer Show debuted on September 30, 1991, with fellow talk-show host Sally Jessy Raphaël as its first guest. Initially, both Springer and Sally were distributed by Multimedia Entertainment, before Sally was sold to Universal in the mid '90s, with Springer at first going to the former Universal and later to Studios USA. is the 273rd day of the year (274th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

It started as a politically-oriented talk show, a longer version of the commentary for which Springer had gained local fame as a reporter and anchor.[3] Guests early on included Oliver North and Jesse Jackson, and the topics included homelessness and gun politics[4][5], as well as social effects of rock and roll, featuring shock rock stars like GG Allin[6] and GWAR as guests.[7] Low ratings led it to be run by a new producer, Richard Dominick. The search for higher ratings led the program towards tawdry and provocative topics, becoming more and more successful, although it still covered issues that were more sensitive and less sensational.[3] It became, through Springer's own admittance, a "freak show" where guests seek their 15 minutes of fame through discussion and demonstrations of deviant behavior.[8] Its extraordinary success has led it to be broadcast in dozens of countries. The show gained so much popularity that for a while it was the top-rated daytime talk show in the United States.

Starting with the 2005 season, director of security Steve Wilkos occasionally hosted the show. Episodes that he hosted were intended to be more serious in tone than the typical Springer show.

On July 15, 2007, it was announced that Springer was picked up from NBC Universal through the 2009-2010 season.[13] Also, VH1 ran a documentary series The Springer Hustle, going "behind the scenes" of the show[14], having already run another Springer-related documentary in 2005 titled When Jerry Springer Ruled the World.[15] The year 2007 in television involves some significant events. ...

Censorship

Springer is syndicated on various stations in the United States at various times of the day, whether in the morning, afternoon, or late evening. All syndicated episodes of Springer are edited for content for broadcast regardless of broadcast time to comply with FCC regulations regarding the broadcast of indecency and obscenity. Initially, profanity or other explicit language on the program was bleeped out, but later episodes used muting to edit out explicit language; in fact, mute censors can extend as far as to remove a group of many words or even an entire sentence, thus making some speech incomprehensible. In addition, nudity and the partial exposure of breasts or buttocks are pixelized out. The abbreviation FCC can refer to: Face-centered cubic (usually fcc), a crystallographic structure Federal Communications Commission, a US government organization Farm Credit Corporation/Farm Credit Canada, a Canadian government organization Families with Children from China, an adoption support organization Florida Christian College, a college in central Florida Fresno City...

Many stations syndicating Springer tend to show first-run episodes during daytime hours, with reruns shown in the daytime as well or during the late-night or overnight hours. However, in some rural areas of the United States, the show is either not shown at all or is shown only between 10:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M., the "watershed" time period designated by the FCC for indecent broadcasts to air legally due to community standards of decency. Stations that show Springer only during late-night timeslots include KIKU in Honolulu, Hawaii[19] and WBSP in Fort Myers, Florida[20].

During the show's most popular era in the late 1990s, The Jerry Springer Show released videotapes and later DVDs marketed as Too Hot for TV. They contained uncensored nudity, profanity, and violence that was edited out from broadcast to conform to FCC standards for broadcast decency. The releases sold remarkably well[21] and inspired similar sets from other series. Eventually, the show started producing similar "uncensored" monthly pay-per-view specials as well.

Criticism and controversies

The Jerry Springer Show has received widespread criticism and caused many controversies for a variety of reasons.


Morality

Major figures in television, along with many religious preachers, had called for the show's removal and consider it to be of bad taste.[22] London Rabbi Shlomo Levin referred to his show as "a kind of pornography" and saw Jerry Springer as an innapropriate choice for a speaker at a major Jewish fundraising dinner.[23] "When we reach a point that a person like Jerry Springer is the speaker, it is time to stop and ask ourselves what has gone wrong," he continued.[24] However, Jerry Springer hit back at these comments, saying, on the subject of the rabbi watching the show itself, "He shouldn't be watching it. I don't like to think of my rabbi watching the show."[23] However, the show has received much mainstream criticism also, i.e, it topped TV Guide's 2002 list of the "The Worst TV Shows Ever",[25], something for which it proudly boasted about for some time. In the Guardian in 2005 on the opera based on the show, Timothy Garton Ash, writing about the controversial decision of the BBC to broadcast it on a Sunday night, said that "the BBC was absolutely right to broadcast it. Right because the obscenity, offensiveness and blasphemy are used not just to entertain, but to convey a disturbing message about American-style popular television culture and the emotional emptiness of an atomised consumer society in which, as one chorus refrain has it, life means to 'eat, excrete and watch TV',"[26] a possible comment on the show's often-stereotyped viewership.

For other uses, see BBC (disambiguation). ...


In 2005, the program became a subject of criticism in Bernard Goldberg's book 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America, being called "TV's lowest life-form"[27] and Springer himself being ranked at #32 and labeled an "American Pioneer".[28] Goldberg also claimed that Springer was knowingly capitalizing off the disadvantages of his guests and stupidity of his audience, also citing the controversial episode revolving around the man who married his horse.[29] Bernard Bernie Goldberg (born 1945) is an American writer, journalist, and political commentator. ... 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (and Al Franken is #37) (ISBN 0-06-076128-8) is a book by Bernard Goldberg that was published in 2005. ...

"Jerry Springer Nation"

The phrase "Jerry Springer Nation" has also been used by some skeptics who see the program as being a bad influence on the morality of the nation.[30] In addition, the phrase has shown the association of Springer with any "lowbrow" type of entertainment in general.[31][32]


Authenticity

In 1997 and 1998, the show reached its ratings peak, at one point becoming the first talk show in years to beat The Oprah Winfrey Show. However, it had now been featuring almost non-stop fighting between guests, triggering mass protests from TV personalities and some priests.[22] The Chicago City Council suggested that if the fistfights and chair-throwing were real, then the guests should be arrested for committing acts of violence in the city, as alderman Ed Burke was concerned over the fact that the undercover Chicago police officers serving as security guards for the program failed to take legal action against fighting guests.[33] Springer explained that the violence on the program "look[ed] real" to him, also arguing that the fighting on the show "never, ever, ever glamorizes violence"..[34] Ultimately, the City Council chose not to pursue the matter.[34] Because of this probe and other external and internal pressures, the fighting was taken off the show temporarily[35] [36] before being brought back in a "toned-down" form.[35] This is a list of television-related events in 1997. ...

However, there has been continous debate over the actual authenticity of the fighting. Marvin Kitman, on the CNN website, encouraged viewers to watch over the show and look closely, as, according to Kitman, "the distinguished guests would have killed each other" had it not been choreographed beforehand. "Watch Springer's security guards spring into action to stop a fight even before it starts," he suggested. "If Jerry still doesn't believe it, he should watch tapes of his show in slo-mo, frame-by-frame."[8] Christopher Sterling, of the George Washington University media department, asserted that "The show is like wrestling. The whole thing is a put-up job."[37] Sixteen former guests of The Jerry Springer Show, who appeared on another tabloid talk show, Extra, and also had interviews with Rolling Stone and The New York Post, even claimed there was a "fight quota" for each episode and that they and other guests were encouraged to fight one another.[38] The Cable News Network, commonly known as CNN, is a major cable television network founded in 1980 by Ted Turner. ...

Murder incident

On May 2000, a married couple, Ralf and Eleanor Panitz, were guests on an episode of the show entitled "Secret Mistresses Confronted" with Mr. Panitz's ex-wife, Nancy Campbell-Panitz, in which they complained about Ms. Campbell-Panitz's behavior and accused her of stalking them. Hours after it was broadcast on July 24, 2000, Ms. Campbell-Panitz was found dead in a home that the three were fighting over, and Florida police soon confirmed that they were treating the death as homicide.[39] It was then reported that Mr. Panitz, having been issued a first-degree murder warrant for the death, was trying to flee to Canada to avoid prosecution.[40] Upon news of the 52-year old woman's murder, a spokeswoman for the program issued a statement saying it was "a terrible tragedy"[41] 2000 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December This is a timeline for events in May, 2000. ... Murder is both a legal and a moral term, that are not always coincident. ...


In August 2000, Springer himself appeared on CNN's Larry King Live to discuss the incident, claiming that it "had nothing to do with the show" and that his talk show does not glamorize deviant behavior.[42] On March 27, 2002, after 18 hours of deliberating from jurors, Mr. Panitz was convicted of the murder after a 10-day trial and sentenced to life.[43] The Cable News Network, commonly known as CNN, is a major cable television network founded in 1980 by Ted Turner. ...
