The Jerry Springer Show

Jerry Springer Tapped to Host Investigation Discovery's 'Tabloid'

Who better than daytime television's reigning king of TV trash to host a show on Investigation Discovery entitled Tabloid? The cabler has announced Jerry Springer will host their new weekly series, exploring salacious stories ripped straight from the pages of supermarket rags.

“There really was no other choice for this series other than the king of daytime talk himself, Jerry Springer, to complement ID’s incredible stories of revenge, betrayal and real-life drama,” said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager, Investigation Discovery. “A credit to his overwhelming appeal to our largely female audience, Jerry’s syndicated series is in its 22nd season and still going strong. We are thrilled to welcome him to the ID family, and excited to have him guide our viewers through the twisted turns behind the eye-catching headlines in Tabloid.” READ MORE

Will You Watch A Less Freaky Springer Show?

The freaks may come out at night, but not anymore on daytime. At least not on next season of The Jerry Spring Show.

According to TV Guide Canada, Springer's exec producer told the Chicago Sun Times they will be scaling back on the wacky and wanton to be a more traditional talk show.

Hmmm, maybe now that Springer is getting main stream (read popular with Mom and Pop) gigs like hosting America's Got Talent he wants to distance himself for the peverse affairs of midgets and legless people? What do you think, will Jerry's audience tune in for a less trailer parky Springer?
