The Jeremy Kyle Show
Advantages: Strangely addictive at times
Disadvantages: Jeremy Kyle as the host
If you're ever in during the day and watch any daytime TV then no doubt at some point you've come across the Jeremy Kyle show normally shown on ITV in the morning or repeated later in the afternoon. Now, I used to watch the Jerry Springer just because it was quite amusing, if not staged most of the time, to see these guests going at one another like there was no tomorrow. Like I was saying it was funny to watch even if you knew it wasn't really real. I also liked Jerry Springer as host to be honest with you.
The Jeremy Kyle tries to do the same thing really without the same impact or enjoyable factor. The show deals with relationships that have gone wrong or pregnancies and who is the father. Also, there are alot of affairs and things like that they deal with.
To be honest with you I find alot of the guests who come on the show pretty rude and strange to say the least, but then you've got to probably have something wrong a little bit to come on a show like this to air your problems in front of an audience you don't know.
On numerous episodes they use a lie detector to determine whether the person is telling the truth about who he or she has slept with or had an affair with and they also in addition reveal paternity tests on the show too. It never really kicks off into a mad scrum like Jerry Springer used to. It might be better if it did. But one of the main reasons I don't really like it is because of Jeremy Kyle who preaches to those on the stage about their lives. I find him pretty rude and not a great host at all. I might be wrong there but that's my opinion. I find him to be not very supportive at all in any situation and speaks down to others a fair bit.
The funny thing with this programme is that I still at times find myself watching it a bit as it's strangely addictive and you want to keep watching to see what will happen. Overall, though it's not great entertaiment and there must be something better to do with your weekday afternoons.
Summary: Overall, not great really but can be addictive at times
