Why 'Jerry Springer' Has Shut Down

"No more knock-down, drag-out fights, as ‘The Jerry Springer Show’ is halting production after 27 years on air. The show debuted in 1991 as a regular talk show, but not for long. By the mid-to-late 1990s, Springer turned to over-the-top guests and had crazy topics to boost ratings. Springer was able to see the humor in what he did, telling Inside Edition once, 'no one should watch the show for counseling. In fact, if you watch the show, you should get counseling.'"
