The Jerry Springer Show Has Stopped Making New Episodes

Jerry!!  Jerry!!  Jerry!!!

After almost 4,000 episodes of mayhem, infidelity, paternity tests, cousin-swapping and all the fetishes, The Jerry Springer Show has stopped production and staff have been told to look for other jobs.

Can you remember these episodes?

  • I Married A Horse
  • Kung Fu Hillbilly
  • Naked Peek-A-Boo
  • I'm Happy I Cut Off My Legs
  • I Slept With My Stripper Sister
  • Adult Babies
  • Klanfrontation!
  • Uncensored: Battlin' Brawlin' Beauties
  • Stop Pimping My Twin Sister

It isn't a massive surprise - the now 74 year old Springer isn't even much of a fan of the show, saying it's a circus with "no redeeming social value."

I disagree.  It spawned the phrase "talk to the hand", got a whole bunch of racists punched in the face, and laid the world at the feet of Steve, the head of security who often found himself between 2 sex workers fighting over the affections of their pimp.  Or something like that.

The world has changed in the 27 years crowds have been chanting Jerry!! Jerry!!  Perhaps The former Mayor of Cincinnati has helped steer conversations on taboo topics and alternative lifestyles.  Or maybe it's pure junk food for the soul when you wake up hungover on during the week.

Thanks for the memories Jerry, look after yourself... and each other.
