Jerry Springer: Criticism of My Show Is 'Class Warfare' (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 12th 2011 5:45PM
The 'Jerry Springer Show' recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary, and to commemorate the occasion, Jerry stopped by 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) to defend the show from its critics. According to Springer, the reason people dismiss his program as trash isn't due to the sibling love-triangles, one-legged strippers or baby mama drama, but is rather an example of class warfare in action.

"The reason I think people criticize the show primarily is because we look down to people who aren't wealthy, aren't very educated, people that are poor. Because if you look at late night shows, they have celebrities on that are talking about the exact same things, who they've slept with, what scandal they've been involved with and everything else. But as soon as it's a poor person having these problems, suddenly they're trash. It's class warfare against these people," Springer said.

'The Jerry Springer Show' Still Alive and Kicking (and Punching) After 20 Years

Jer-ry! Jer-ry! Jer-ry!

We all know the meaning of that battle cry, so please don't try to deny it. Twenty years (and 505 episodes) after its launch, 'The Jerry Springer Show' -- voted "#1 Worst Show of All Time" by TV Guide -- is still hitting humanity's basest nerves with its mixture of out-there guests and in-studio violence.

Unlike predecessors 'The Jenny Jones Show' and 'Sally Jesse Raphael,' which fell victim to an off-screen murder and low ratings (respectively), 'Springer' has managed to survive the omnipresence of the internet and a zillion muck-racking reality TV shows.

AOL TV tried to find the answers to the obvious questions -- Is the show for real? How has it lasted? What's Springer like when he's "off"? And how long is he planning on hosting this show? -- by attending the taping of an episode. We share what we found out, after the jump.

Angry Mom Lays Down the Law on 'Jerry Springer' (VIDEO)

OK. Here's the setup for this 'Raging Bull'-style episode of 'The Jerry Springer Show' (weekdays, syndicated). Jason and Nichalet are married but he's been cheating on her with Kayla. This pisses off Kayla's mom to no end -- since Nichalet is also her daughter. And to top it off, they're twins.

So mom goes on a rampage, attacking Kayla while yelling at her that's she's despicable and embarrassing to her. "I did not raise you like this," she shouts at Kayla. "What is wrong with you?"

Then the two sisters get into it, and mom breaks them up, pausing a little bit before taking off after Jason. With her best Jack LaMotta one-two, she punches out Jason, yelling "You're the devil. You're the devil himself."

Mom, we want you in our corner of the ring for sure.

Jerry Springer Is Shocked That Pimps Have Mothers (VIDEO)

Jerry Springer Is Shocked That Pimps Have MothersOn the latest episode of 'The Jerry Springer Show' (weekdays, syndicated), host Jerry Springer must deal with a pimp, his hooker, and the hooker's boyfriend. The boyfriend wants the young lady to stop being a hooker, which leads to some conflict with her pimp. Naturally, trouble is the result.

But the most fascinating part of the show is Jerry's extended conversation with the pimp, whose name is "Rich Boy." Jerry seems intrigued by the whole concept of pimping, and he asks Rich Boy lots of questions, including whether hookers get "a good pension plan."

A little later on, Jerry surprises Rich Boy by having his mother come on the show. "Oh, Lord," Rich Boy says. " ... That's my momma." And Jerry seems startled by even this mundane fact.

"Pimps have moms?!" Jerry says to Rich Boy. Uh, yes, Jerry. They do. Pimps don't just spring up fully-formed from the ground or anything. Even pimps have mothers; everyone has to come from somewhere.

A Gay Weasel on 'Jerry Springer' (VIDEO)

A Gay Weasel on 'Jerry Springer'The latest episode of 'The Jerry Springer Show' (weekdays, syndicated) has this intriguing title: "I HAD SEX WITH YOUR TRANNY BROTHER." See, that's the nice thing about the 'Springer' show. Even if you click over in the middle of an episode, you can still read the title on the screen and figure out what is going on.

On the show, Jerry Springer talks with a young man named "Weasel," who has cheated on his girlfriend. And as you may have guessed by now, he cheated on her with his girlfriend's transsexual brother. Weasel tells an improbable story that involves him passing out, then randomly waking up to find the brother performing oral sex on him. "I'm not gay!" Weasel says. "I'm not gay!"

But his story doesn't really make sense. And the transsexual brother in question insists that Weasel is gay.

Jerry listens to Weasel's tale -- in which the young man is implausibly trapped into having sex with another man against his will. Then, Jerry offers up a very simple conclusion. "You're gay," he says to Weasel.
