    So I just switched the tele over and was greeted by two..... what are the words? I really can't describe these people... socially retarded maybe? (sorry that may seem harsh) Shouting and swearing at eachother like a couple of lunatics. A boy of 17 sleeping around not caring about the consequences. People cheating on eachother, DNA results, Lie detector test results, teenagers sleeping around using no protection. Every week morning this rubbish is on T.V. Why!? More importantly why would anyone want to expose their dirty laundry to the whole of the nation making yourself look like an idiot. When did the U.K. get so bad sad  Yes I am talking about The Jeremy Kyle Show.

    Why are these shows even on the Television.... Really?

          Perhaps people watch to mock others for their "stupidity" and as was mentioned, to feel better about themselves. Pretty miserable way to feel better about yourself, I'd say.

          Alot of that type of TV here in the US as well. Jerry Springer set the standard and now Maury Povich is carrying the torch (and others).

          Not until we are tricked into not watching all this rubbish, will it go away. I think we have to realize that we should feel lucky that our lives aren't such a mess, not better than those people. Everybody has crap in their life.

    ...because somewhere there are people interested in it! Unfortunately, the whole 'shock horror' thing works.... sad, because instead of genuinely helping people, these shows just make a mockery of human emotions. sad

      I know, it's sad. However some of the people (by all emans not all) are just beyond help, they don't want it, they just think it's clever going on the show. What a waste of time and money! sad

    Happiness sells during festivals, people make money off with religious/non-religious holidays. If happiness sells why not dirt, cheap attitude, weird, retard things in life ? Someone's sorrows,fear, despair can be entertainment for rest of the world. These television shows go on because people like to see reality of others on TV and want to gossip about it. The day we stop gossiping about those shows & other people, they'll disappear, but is there any such day in calendar we stop talking about others ?

    Simey nailed it.  Dreadful daytime television makes people feel better about themselves.  You may be unemployed with bills stacking up, but hey, this guy here has four babies with 4 baby mommas! Sucks to be him!

    it is on sometimes at work, and i wonder about these people... the only reason they could do it for money.... maybe some of them are just actors.

    Back in Roman times they used to throw people in with the lions to entertain the masses - now we have shows like Jeremy Kyle and Big Brother.

    Same principle - throw some deluded people onto a TV show so we can have a laugh at their pain and suffering.

    The only way to stop TV shows like this is not watch them.  If the viewing figures go down, the advertisers won't pay for the slots and the shows will be pulled.
