The Jerry Springer show, known for its candid and confrontational endeavors is calling it off, and no one will say why.


It came as quite a shock to most fans when The Jerry Springer Show called it off after almost 4,000 episodes and 27 seasons.

The tabloid talk show hosted by former Cincinnati Mayor, Jerry Springer, was celebrated for its exciting topics, on-set brawls, chair throwing and open confrontations.

Loaded with profanity and an audience that wasn't afraid to embarrass themselves, The Jerry Springer Show was a hit with many. In its 90's prime, the show challenged daytime television supreme The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Springer's show was known to have everything - from thought-provoking 'end-of-civilization' talks to gender fluid guests before that was even a familiar term.


The show ran 4,000 episodes across 27 seasons. When asked about his secret, Springer laughed and joked that anybody could put him out of business if they learned three phrases: "You did what?", "Come on out" and "We'll be right back!"

He presided television's most bizarre confessions, outrageous admissions and much more. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the seven-time Emmy winner Springer, 74, hinted about being approached by other television projects and ventures.

"I don't know if I can still maintain this schedule, it has been insane for all these years."

Last year, Springer said on the Today show that the concept of the show was 'stupid.' He admitted that the show had a niche audience. He credited the success of the show to the personalities and the outrageous stories of his guests.

Even the show's producers have been tightlipped. They hinted at the possibility of filming more original episodes in the future but did not confirm anything with certainty.

NBC Universal has confirmed that the CW and other networks have bought the show and the reruns will be airing on a few networks.
