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 »

Just as the three-ring-circus was established for "The Jerry Springer Show",it goes just to prove that Jenny Jones really scrapes the bottom of the TV talk show barrel of garbage and it shows. The only saviour that makes her show stand out is the local bands she has to perform on her show and some of these musical bands(most of them are just independent acts with some of them looking to branch out and make it on their own)are very good. The rest of it I wouldn't care one bit since its nothing but utter crap(which goes to a point that this show has faced cancellation twice and they keep putting it back on the air)at it complete worst. Second to Maury and Ricki Lake.
