There have been many phrases that people have used to describe The Jeremy Kyle Show, "To The Point""No Nonsense" and "Blunt" to name but a few. None of these how ever describe how mind numbingly bad this program is so I thought that I would give it a shot.

Have you ever been at a family get-together were someone has to many drinks and starts making a scene, bringing up their families past and generally making everyone feel very uncomfortable, even those who are not related to them, well that is what this program is like. It could even be said that this is worse, seeing as the people on the show are being paid.

I find Jeremy Kyle to be very obnoxious and thought this when he did a radio show near where I live, he cuts people off, talks louder then his guests just to get his point across and humiliates them (this isn't to bad thought as most of them look and are criminals). A prime example of his rude-ness is when he brought a guest on as said "How are you mate, Don't worry no-one knows about your past" which is worse seeing as this lets our imagination run wild with what sort of thing this person might have done, it was later found out from the guest who must have wanted people to know he wasn't some kind of sexual predator the he used to be an alcoholic.

Another thing about Kyle is how much he must love the sound of his own voice, you will hear him say "Now I'm gonna let you two have your say" and then proceeds to interrupt when they do. With pointless one liners like "How did that make you feel" or "What did you do at this point". The worst example of Kyle was when he had an anorexic girl on the show and her mother (Who was living in Spain) and asked "Why didn't you leave Spain when you saw your daughter, Your ONLY daughter like this". It felt like he was trying to get the point across that the woman was a bad mother for not selling everything and joining her child in the UK, which is OK but for the fact that her ONLY daughter is about 35 and has a fiancé.

This line of questioning makes the mother up-set and later tries to explain that for financial reasons see can't leave Spain every time see wants, Kyle then interrupts and says "Look, all I'm saying is that if it was my daughter I would have walked back from Spain if I had to". When the mother tries to explain why she didn't do this (probably down to the fact that its a pretty long walk and swim.) Jeremy comes out with his favorite phrase "Its not about me or you, its about her" which is another way of saying 'How can you think about yourself when your ONLY daughter is here with this illness'.

This whole experience is made that little bit worse with the typical chat show audience that must all come from a pagan village where they burn people for being witches and run round in a mob with torches singing Christian songs. I mean someone will be sitting in the chair explaining about how they THINK their boyfriend has been seeing someone else, and while the girl who looks like she spends her free time (which there is a lot of seeing as she don't have a job) stealing BMW car badges explains, you will get a close up of an audience member biting a nail and shaking their head in disgust. When the boyfriend comes on to the stage, before even getting a chance to defend himself you will here "BOOOOO!!!". I mean lets face it if you have time during the day to sit in a TV studio then you ain't going to be societies lords and ladies, to be honest most of them look like they could be guests on the show in that EVERYONE but Kyle has some kind of florescent tracksuit on, making the show look as colorful as a samba festival except no-one smiles, although thats a good thing when you see the state of some of their teeth. They look like they haven't seen a toothbrush since they were born.

To make the thing as bad as possible all the show needs it guests that have a three word vocabulary and looks that even their own mother can't love, which is what this show has. Every time a guest comes on to defend them self they will run full speed up to there partner/mother or both and then stop about 3 centimeters from the face screaming "How dare you lie about me" or "Who do you think you are" with Kyle saying something like "Hey you two your on national television is that anyway to react" while the audience applauds because Kyle a celebrity *as he is on T.V.* and their God has said something to belittle the big-headed guests.

The show, or side-show has a comedy aspect to it though, like when an 'a.s.b.o. drug addict, 16 year old mother of three' says "Your just trying to ruin my reputation". This would be hilarious if not for the fact the when I want to find out about history or aviation I have to subscribe to the History Channal or Discovery. Please people of Britain someone tell me I'm not alone in this Nightmare!
