Storyline

One of the early shock-talk shows, Downey was a precursor to later hosts such as Jenny Jones, Ricki Lake and Jerry Springer. Downey's show tended to focus on political, rather than personal issues, but guests were still chosen on the basis of their dislike for one another, and their tendencies to lose their tempers suddenly, loudly and violently. These outbursts were encouraged by 'moderator' Downey, who would continually goad his guests to their limits. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

One of the worst shows ever.
14 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

One of the worst shows ever. I hope no other show like this one ever makes its way onto TV again.

He was abusive, and a phoney. If my memory serves me, he would sometimes pretend to befriend a guest before he turned on him. It amazed me anyone would think this guy would side with anyone on anything.

The entire premise for the show was Downey being socially and verbally abusive while he chain smoked. This show really sucked.

Only Springer's is worse. And it may be better. But I'll give the nod to Springer as the worst show ever because it has lasted longer.
