Jerry Springer first aired in 1991, and soon became the most popular talk show if its time. The show's creator, Jerry Springer, a former lawyer, launched a podcast three years ago.

As reported by TV Line, they syndicated talk show will move to CW later this year, but only reruns and pre-taped episodes will be aired.

The possibility still exists that the network will order new episodes in the near future, but showrunners haven't confirmed this. In the meantime, production has ceased.

Similar shows, Maury and The Steve Wilkos Show, however, have been renewed and will still charm viewers for the next two years.

As reported by Hollywood Reporter, Springer, Maury and The Steve Wilkos Show are the last of their genre, with other tabloid show hosts fading into obscurity.

Ricki Lake, Jenny Jones, and Sally Jessy Raphael ceased production years ago, while the talk show scene was transformed by the likes of Steve Harvey and Dr. Phil.

Jerry Springer was born in London and pursued a political career after graduating with a B.A degree from Tulane University in the sixties, where he majored in political science.

He ran for Congress in the seventies, but couldn't unseat Donald D. Clancy. Springer was elected to the Cincinnati City Council the following year.

He was also a political reporter and commentator on WLWT and was later promoted to managing editor. Springer was the number one news anchor in Cincinnati for two consecutive years.

His talk show was set to mimic the WLWT format, and The Jerry Springer Show soon became a fan-favorite and a guilty pleasure to millions.

The showrunners experimented with a more controversial format three years later, to include tabloid sensationalism. It worked, and the show's ratings tripled.
