People watch Jerry Springer? Huh? :-)<br />
I think most of the time people just want to look and point at the TV and say "wow, I'm glad I'm not them!" or "wow, what's wrong with the world today?"<br />
...even if some of the situations are probably staged. Eh.<br />
Jerry Springer is just another television show; people watch them to escape reality for a little bit and be entertained.
For the same reason that the Romans used to watch people getting eaten by wild animals as a form of entertainment:<br />
1) Because many humans secretly enjoy watching other humans suffer (even if they restrict that desire to socially acceptable outlets).<br />
2) Because it enables you to look at someone less fortunate than yourself and say "I'm glad I'm not them".
It's complete empty head, empty mind entertainment....although i don't watch any of those programs at all...I agree with everyone else too. I suppose it helps some get away from their own lives and their own realities.
ummm..... two words.... "TRAILER TRASH!!"
Old question but here are reasons why. <br />
1. People are ghetto<br />
2. To laugh at them thankful its not them<br />
3. Nothing else is on tv, no movies, house is clean and no car to go anywhere so you suffer (which i do this one lol)<br />
In all its a stupid show with stupid and annoying people.
I honeslty don't know. I don't watch now but when it first started I did but it's the same thing over and over and over. He finds country hicks that live in trailer parks or actors playing the roles, and they fume and fight. I thought the show was getting cancelled. It's going down. I do like Steve Wilkos show though. His show has meaning and he's solved some legal issues for some people.
Jerry has LEFT the Building and has been shipped back to <br />
because they make you relize how silly you really are for petty life problems, if you resemble anybody on that show then you really have problems
I know right!..But I believe that stuff is staged no matter what anyone says
ABSOLUTELY SHALLOW WHY PAY A TV LICENCE FOR THAT RUBBISH..........<br />
UNFORTUANTELY AMERICAN SOCIETY IS ALREADY TOOVIOLENT WHY SHOW THE STAGED FIGHTING<br />
SCENARIOS <br />
COME ON JERRY DO US A FAVOUR AND END THS SHOW
Well, you can't help but laugh!
