The Steve Wilkos show is a do not miss

Updated on October 14, 2010

Who is Steve Wilkos

Steve Wilkos use to be a Chicago police officer. He than went on to become a security guard on the popular talk show The Jerry Springer show. Steve than went on and recently got his own talk show where he talks about hard to swallow subjects and approaches them in ways other talk show host are afraid to.

Steve Wilkos attitude

On Steve's show you can tell right off the bat that he is different than all other talk show hosts and it is refreshing. There are many people out there that will say that the show is rigged or he has an attitude because that is his gimmick but it is all wrong because if someone was to make up the stuff that some of his guests go on his show for than that would be very sick. Steve's attitude towards his guests are what these people need because some of the people who appear on his show are not good people. Steve will get in some guests' faces and tell them the truth about what they are and what they did wrong.

The type of people

The type of people that have appeared on Steve's show varies. There have been rapists, child molesters, spousal beaters and deadbeat parents on his show. There has been a guy on his show that tried to sell his kids for a lump sum of money and there has been people who beat their wives or husbands and/or abuse their kids.

Final conclusion

Steve should recruit more people who are like him and start more talk shows like his because it is about time someone is not afraid to get into people's faces that deserve it. Steve needs to be on the air for a very long time and maybe when he is ready to retire there will be another show like this one. Steve makes a dfference in the world.

      Steve has never claimed to have a degree in psychology or training as a social mediator. He is a forum for people to exercise their moral constraints and air their flas, legal and moral. Many clear their names and others appear more guilty as they undergo polygraph testing. All agree to this no matter the outcome. Steve is a fair and morally fortified individual who lends a very loud voice to the wronged. I salute you sir! SEMPER FIDELIS!

      I just saw a show and I have to tell you, your show is bullshit.... A woman is accused of cheating, her lie detector test said she didnt, but a paternity test proved the baby wasnt the accusers. How do you explain this... You made an ass out of the accuser and a saint out of the woman, even after the paternity test. OOPS didnt catch that blooper did you asshole, your show is crap, I'll never watch it again and I'll spread the news on this oversight on your part and hopefully others will stop watching ur laim ass show too.

      I have to disagree with your assessment of Wilkos. His show is no less formulaic than the other shows that follow the format of inviting people to come onto the show to lay bare their personal tragedies for public consumption. "Guests" tend to be members of disadvantaged social categories: people of color and lower class.

      Just as with Springer, Pauvich and similar shows, the guest is judged by the host, viewing and television audience in terms of whether they are "good" or "bad" people. Issues such as custody, paternity, adultery, domestic violence, addiction and felony history are commonly used to judge guests. Guests who are viewed by the host and audience as redeeming themselves are rewarded with applause; those who offend the host and audience meet with jeers, boos and catcalls. Another part of the formula is the behavior of the guest. On different shows there are different requirements. On Wilkos' show, a first guest is generally introduced to the audience to recount a tale of injustice and to proclaim innocence. A second person is usually then brought out, screaming and shouting, provoking the audience to do laughter and shouting. Security guards stand around, suggesting an expectation of violence. It is common for guests to run from the stage and through halls that are presumably backstage, but are really part of the show, given the plethora of employees and cameras in the area.

      Based on the teaser snippets advertising the shows, we are supposed to find shows with shrieking, crying and/or threatening guests the most interesting. These, along with violence and emotional paternity test results seem to be the mainstay of these shows. It is notable who the hosts are: often those of middle class background or holding middle class values. upper middle class/wealthy guests are noticeably absent.

      If you don't understand the nature and formula of these shows, you haven't been watching for long, or you've been watching uncritically. The differences in set design or host behavior doesn't negate the basic formula. Wilkos learned the formula through his work as a security guard on Springer's show.
