    Because of that?

    You know, I hear a lot of people hate him. And I watch his show, and he DOES talk sense. I agree with him on many things as well. People have done stupid things in the past, we should be able to accept and forgive.

    He's a hypocrite who makes money insulting people and being publicly outraged at things, he himself would do privately.

    I think it's terrible. Entertainment for the masses by picking the most vulnerable in society and laughing at their problems/mistakes/downfalls. What other people would sort out on private, he takes and makes it into a show which I think just makes the viewers feel better about themselves by showing them that things could be worse.

    Why not use the money to help people off the stage, behind closed doors. Cut out the whole Jeremy thing, and just have those who know what they're doing helping the people.

    I watch the Jeremy Kyle show sometimes, I think he is smart...but is too opinionated and puts people down and makes them feel bad about themselves. He thinks he is god.

    I think having shows about problems such as drug addictions, abortion, rape, and divorce a good thing. I think it teaches a lesson to the viewers, especially the younger viewers, its good to learn from others mistakes too :)

    It can be a good thing if done the right way. I think exploiting things is not it.

    I totally agree that having shows about such problems is a good idea. But I think that they can be just as effective without the putting people down, making their problems entertainment for the masses. Because, lets face it, the majority of viewers don't watch the show as an educational tool...

    I watch the show sometimes, forgive me as daytime television is so limiting in the choice of what to watch when one is laid up in bed ill, or perchance home on a free day and meant to be working but cannot.

    I do not think he is as brilliant as people think but he can be quite entertaing at times.

    That is all :)

    it's horrible that used to be the thing i'd hate watching in the past. i'd get a very visceral reaction to TURN IT OFFF IT'S HIM :puke:

    isn't that what he says to people on his show, that everyone is 'scum?'

    those shows remind me of public humiliations/torture. people flocking to cheer on someone who doesn't have a clue about life or individuals, gape at someone's private life and feelings being butchered/spat on/demeaned, and then all clap and nod mindlessly to a tv bully? that's what those shows are like.

    and trisha i've heard is becoming a bit like the jerry springer show with all the fighting/launching at each other with fists on stage and screeching.

    i personally can't watch things like that. just the sight of him makes me turn it off because he is so vicious and people really think he's 'helping' wtf? :huh:

    the man just shouts and talks down to so called guests, his backroom staff whip up the guests to be confrontational coz at the end of the day that is what this show is all about.
    if it was handled with some respect it would be boring.

    dont like him, he is so sleazy

    Jeremy Kyle is mentally disordered. That's what I think anyway.
