    Well if I knew it was fake I would still watch it because it's hilarious, but I think it's real, why do you think its fake?

    I don't watch it!  I think it is a rediculous show, I would not waste my time watching it!

    I would not watch it, it exploits the worst in the human being.  No thanks.  Fake or not, I can't stomach it.

    The Springer Show and his newer game-show "Baggage" is clearly staged if you notice how his comments and props conveniently appear at the right times. They're all "paid" actors and actresses who will sometimes get paid extra if they take shots before they go out. Having said that, I think people still watch it because it's brainless humor like another scripted show, Jersey Shore.

    Back in 1995, I read of a case where a man confessed to his wife he had slept with the babysitter.  The woman cried even while the taping of the show was not going on.  The next day, Jerry Springer found out the man and his wife, as well as the babysitter and her boyfriend, were a comedy acting troupe from Canada.  He sued them!
