Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

Picture it: 1991—A young girl, barely in her teens, rushing to get home from elementary school just so she can watch crazy exes scrap it out onstage while the crowd chants “Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!” That girl was me. Hey, no judging! I absolutely loved The Jerry Springer Show. That is, until I found out it was all fake. Today, it’s easy to look back and see how fake the show was. But let’s be honest: For most of the past 26 seasons, we were all fooled.

Springer was one of the most hated, most controversial show of its time. It was like a bad car wreck, you don’t wanna see it, but you can’t stop watching. From incestuous relationships to a love triangle turned deadly, Jerry Springer has talked about it all. Today, you probably don’t give the show the time of day but let’s take a walk down memory lane. Here are all the things you hated about the “worst show of all time.”
