Would you want the Jeremy Kyle Show back on TV?

Would you want the Jeremy Kyle Show back on TV? His Show was cancelled last year after a guest committed suicide after appearing! I personally wouldn't, his Show was full of Chavs, frequented by rough looking women with 6 kids by 3 different blokes, and she doesn't know which kids belong to which bloke! Also estranged Families sorting out their Familial problems live on air, FGS if you have Family problems sort them out behind closed doors NOT on National TV.

    I never liked Jeremy Kyle's attitude towards many of the people that appeared on his show. He accentuated their bad points and goaded them into getting angry, upset, tearful and even vengeful. I feel that he misused his position. He could have tackled people's problems with a much more compassionate and positive approach. So, unless the programme adopts a completely different remit, I would not welcome it back on our screens.

    Hi @MrAllen1976 - good topic.  I do miss Jeremy Kyle but at times found it uncomfortable to watch and exploitative.  

    Just a friendly reminder that although we understand people will have a diverse range of opinions on the community, to be careful with the language you use as it could be construed as offensive.  Take a look at our online community guidelines for a refresher.

    I voted that I don’t care either way. I may not watch it but I don’t see the point in depriving people of something just because I don’t like it. In a way I’d be happier knowing his fans are indoors watching TV and not roaming around outside.

    Even though I watched it I wouldnt want it back, too staged, too much shouting and putting people down, agree only certain types of people get on. Who would want to air their dirty washing in public 

    I think a rep from DWP would have been watching as well to catch out all the benefit fraudsters on there

    If anyone misses the Jeremy Kyle show, I recently came across a show I would recommend called Judge Render (or may be Rinder) which is very similar to Jeremy Kyle in that is attracts a certain type of person as “contestant” and the audience laughs while the host (the judge) spends his time mocking said contestants and it’s basically scripted to make the host look clever. It’s more financially based though with one party usually looking for compensation for something trivial that has happened to them.

    I never watched it as we never watch TV before 6pm but from what I read it sounded horrific so I voted no.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Judge Robert Rinder, he's an actual Judge in real life apparently.

    He appeared on Strictly Come Dancing last year as I recall as well.

    66Mustang that's a great comment you made, about preferring the audience to be indoors than roaming the streets!

    Don't care...never watched it.  Not my bag at all!

    Rob Rinder recently did a documentary on the Holocaust due to his own family links to it.  Personally I preferred him doing that sort of thing compared to 'Judge Rinder'  Hated that programme.  My Nan liked it though, it always seemed to be on there whenever I visited!  :D

    If you like programmes about shaming people...try the Filthy House SOS program on Channel 5.  The voiceover lady makes me laugh every time...  'Oh no, we see Barry here hasn't hoovered underneath his bedside cupboard for over 2 years, this amount of dust is enough to choke a person to death!  And there's a 2 inch square of mould on the wall, how he's survived this long, we'll never know!'  They take it all so seriously as well!  It's a bit of tidying and cleaning for goodness sake!!  :D

    Also watch programs on C5 about people on benefits, legal trolling to wind up the right who already have a BIG axe to grind against people on benefits in general IMO.
