Garbage
11 December 2005 | by royuSee all my reviews

The Jerry Springer Show as we know it today is a big pile of horse dump aimed at the dumbest people in the trashiest trailer parks. It once was genuine, but the guests have been replaced by Z-grade actors who hopelessly dribble on trying to think of something stupid to say.

Don't watch this show, an hour of your life will just pointlessly go down the drain, you'd be better of watching white noise.

I think Springer himself is really embarrassed at the turn the show has made, you can tell he just wants to get out of there and get his cheque. It's too bad this is what he'll be remembered for, because he's a smart guy.

Absolute rubbish.
