The Jerry Springer Show

About this show,
My girls are amused,
Interrupting my sports,
Intruding my news,
To the television,
Their eyes are glued,
Ignoring mom cries,
Snacks or food,
So a series,
I just viewed,
And I thought it was,
Oh so rude,
On a talk show,
Girls fighting half nude,
I found it unpalatable, 
I found it lewd..

    Everything on the show is staged. I would rather watch wrestling or the roller derby.

    that's why it is (or was) so popular! lol. it's probably all fake anyway. maybe you could have a sudden power outage, or cable outage, next time it's on...

    If for some reason I happen to be flipping the channels, I find that and some other programming very offensive..I know that it is just fake but really..People do watch that..My daughter's deceased mother-in-law loved that show..Thanks for stopping by...Sara
