Production Ends After 27 Years

Production for The Jerry Springer Show is coming to an end after 27 years, according to an announcement by Broadcasting & Cable that was made on June 13, 2018. However, it does not mean the show is going off the air anytime soon.

People might misunderstand and think the show is being canceled. The announcement did not say the show was ending. It stated that no more shows will be produced for the 2018-2019 season. Instead, there will be a series of reruns.

Since the news broke, The CW immediately picked up the show, and reruns will begin airing in September. It will be in the spot that The Robert Irvine Show used to be in before it was canceled earlier this year.

Production Has Stopped

After nearly 4,000 episodes, there will be no more filming of the show as has been in the past. However, reruns will air on The CW this fall as well as pre-taped episodes.

As of now, production on the show is over, but the new network has the option to order new shows for multiple years.

Uncertainty

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the long-running show was not renewed by a station group last April. However, the show was immediately picked up by another network for reruns only.

Even though there are many uncertainties, some things are known.

  • The CW has a deal for multiple years of the series.
  • Only reruns will be aired.
  • There is an option for new episodes.
  • Pre-produced episodes will air starting this fall.
  • The show is still on the air.

The CW's Involvement

Pre-produced and reruns of the show will air on The CW and in syndication. The CW's deal is for multiple years, and there is a chance the network could order new episodes. If that happens, production will continue in Connecticut where Maury and The Steve Wilkos Show are produced. They have been renewed for two more years, and The Jerry Springer Show could have the same fate.

For the time being, Springer's show will take over the slot that was occupied by The Robert Irvine Show. Viewers will just have to wait to see what will happen in the future.

The crew and employees of the show were told about the ceasing of production back in April, and they are looking for new jobs.

About the Show

The Jerry Springer Show is a long-running series that first aired on September 30, 1991. Once it had over 10 million viewers on a daily basis. That was more than what Oprah had back in the late 1990s.

Viewers either loved the show or they hated it. However, enough viewers have loved it for 27 years because of its offbeat topics and fights. Over the years, some people have called it "trash."

There have been a lot of fights on the show over the years. Whenever a fight breaks out, the audience begins chanting "Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!" Security has broken up hundreds of fights and brought some order to the show. There have been questions about whether the fights are real or not.

People on social media are divided about how they feel about the state of the show right now. Some want it off the air, and others say it should be allowed to stay. No reason was given why production has ended.

Part of the format of the show always concludes with Springer's "Final Thought" segment where the host summarizes what had happened during the hour. People who didn't like seeing the fistfights say that was the only positive thing about the show.

About Jerry Springer

Jerry Springer, whose real name is Gerald Norman Springer, is a 74-year-old television host. He has been in the public eye for a long time. He is a former lawyer, actor, musician, and the former mayor of Cincinnati.

Besides hosting his own show close to three decades, Springer has hosted several other well-known shows, including NBC's America's Got Talent for two seasons. He has also hosted Miss World, Miss Universe, WWE Raw, The Price Is Right Live, Investigation Discovery, The Adam Carolla Show, and Baggage, a dating show.

Jerry is a good sport when it comes to trying new things. Case in point is that he was a contestant on ABC's popular dancing competition show Dancing with the Stars during Season 3 in 2006. He was partnered with Kym Johnson. They were eliminated in the seventh week of competition, but it was long enough for him to get his wish to learn the waltz so he could dance with his only daughter, Katie at her upcoming wedding.

      Interesting. I wasn't aware it was still running. It was aired in UK years ago and then stopped.

      Funny show, but you can't help but watch what would happen.

      Louise, people here in the US either love it or hate it. There seems to be no in between. A lot of people frown on the offbeat topics and the fighting.
