Storyline

A talk show similar in format to those of Jerry Springer, Ricki Lake and Montel Williams. Sensational topics, with guests chosen to maximize the chances of open conflict. One common tactic is to bring on 'surprise' guests that other guests might otherwise refuse to publicly meet with. This tactic backfired once, when a male guest on a 'secret admirers revealed' episode later killed his admirer after discovering, on camera, that it was another man.

Trivia

In 1995, the show became the focus of a sensational murder trial. On 9 March 1995, 29-year-old Jonathan Schmitz appeared on a show called "Same-Sex Secret Crushes", but having only been told that the show was about secret crushes, he assumed that the admirer was a woman. The secret crush turned out to be his neighbor, 32 year-old Scott Amedure. Feeling that he had been publicly humiliated, Schmitz killed Amedure three days later with a 12 gauge shotgun. Schmitz was tried for first degree murder, but the case was overturned due to a technical error in the jury selection. In 1999, he was tried for Second-degree murder and received a sentence of 20-25 years. In May of that year a civil trial found "The Jenny Jones Show" to have been negligent because they did not screen the guests before inviting them on the show. The show was ordered to pay the Amedure family $25,000,000 for funeral expenses and pain and suffering for each family member. This decision was later overturned on appeal. The show pressed on in spite of sluggish ratings and was finally cancelled in 2003. See more »

The Best Daytime Talk Show
28 January 2003 | by (Housten,Texes) – See all my reviews

Jenny Jones is one of the best shows on television. It is always interesting and entertaining and has great topics. "Boot Camp" blows all other talk show out of the water. For a good daytime show watch Jenny Jones. So dont miss Jenny Jones weekdays at 3:00-4:00 on FOX.
