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. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

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 »

Utter and complete crap.
25 May 2001 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

If you are reading this review, then you must have enough time on your hands to actually watch this show. Like many talk shows, it's an excuse to laugh at the misfortunes of others. It's a freakshow of many guests who scream for ratings and it provides no knowledge to any problems except an endless parade of cliches from 'experts' who were probably picked off the street.

Listen: you are probably here for a reason. Go outside. Go read a book. Clip your toenails and go outside and see how people act when they're not held underneath a magnifying glass. I suspect that most of the people on this show are being told what to say in return for meager payment. If you want reality, go outside. Save your time and watch something entertaining. This is not.

As for Ms. Jones, I would insult her but since she doesn't have a clue in that bubblehead of hers aside from breast cancer and those cliches, I'll save my venom for a person who has a base grasp of the English vocabulary.
