I admit to watching this really awful show from time to time. I don't set out to watch it but if I'm channel surfing and if it's on, I'll watch a little.

Same here. I just love to watch white trash duke it out for some reason.

Steve! Steve! Steve!

I watch just to see if people I know, like Todd, get on camera.

I used to work for The Jerry Springer Show a few years ago.

What can you tell us about Springer? Your experiences on the show, GuessWho?

Although I'm sure most of the people and stories are authentic, some of the guests and situations seem set-up.

When I was there, it was owned by a different studio, so maybe the rules have changed. We sued one panel of guests when they revealed themselves to be fakes after the show aired.

Were the people real, yes.

Did we pump up their emotions with good pep rally speeches, yes.

When the girl threw the condoms at her man saying "next time you cheat on me use these!" whose idea was that? The producers. But he was cheating on her.

The situations were absolutely real, we just got them to express it more photogenically.

I can't watch the Springer show everyday. If I do, it gets old and I end up flipping channels. But once in a while, that is just the funniest $hit on tv.

I used to watch from time to time depending on the topic. Same with the other day time talk shows. Now I can't stand them at all, and will watch for a moment or two if I'm flipping channels and something catches my eye.

I remember about 10 years ago Jerry Springer had a real show with real people and real topics. He seemed pretty legit and shyed away from the over the top sensationalism he goes for now. I guess everyone has their price.

I only watch it sometimes when I'm surfing and only for a couple of minutes. It's soooooo funny seeing all them white trash acting and talking like they're from the " hood "! 8-D
