Jeremy Kyle Gone Too Far
« on: 13 May 2019, 15:39:09 »

The Jeremy Kyle show has been pulled from screening and recording of all episodes after a guest died shortly after filming. The incident is being very seriously investigated, so one wonders what has happened :o
https://news.sky.com/story/jeremy-kyle-show-taken-off-air-after-participant-dies-11718958


I know what I think of him and this show, but has he now pushed things too far?

Some online comments make for some interesting reading :o

I wouldn't lose any sleep over the demise of Jeremy Kyle himself.
Unlikeable shithead.

Media mudslinging. No more no less.

For all that 'article' knows, they were hit by a bus ::)

For all its entertainment focus, that show does actually take its duty of care very seriously, hence ITV and the production company pressing pause.

But let's not let that get in the way of a rival broadcaster casting aspersions  ::)

The article states that the person died a week after taking part in the show, so as Dr G says could have been hit by a bus or had a heroin overdose or something.  ::)

Possibly.  But for ITV to pull such a popular show, and damage it's advertising revenue, it must be something serious that links what happened to the programme.

I am sure we will all find out the truth in due course. ;)

I cannot , under any circumstances , understand how any person of intelligence would be remotly concerned about that programme being pulled.
I have only ever been subjected to snippets of it but found it utterly cringeworthy in it's public display of human misery from a particular social class.
Lowest level of entertainment , ever.

It was suicide, a week after the man had failed a lie detector test,  Surprised there have not been more!!:

I agree wholeheartedly.

But we've bred a generation of Big Brother fans, soaps that have to explore (extreme) current affairs, and what are what my generation used to refer to as Trailer Trash - for once the yanks had a better name.


Hence we have a generation of pretty thick people who you look at with that look of "100m sperm, and that was the fastest?".


As to the actual incident, it was a week later, and nobody knows, or cares, what happened.  Lets face it, if the person was suicidal enough to go on the I-let-my-wife-shag-around programme, they were oppsed anyway.  One less for the cull.

If they axe this one, another trailer trash version will take its place.  Our British spongers love it.

Yes, and so do ITV and the like.  It is relatively  cheap television to make, compared to a drama or documentary, and it sells masses of advertising so the shareholders love it as well with their bank accounts swelling! >:(

All achieved by humiliating the weakest, more vulnerable members of our society and they call it "entertainment"!! :P

Because in the past this type of programme, with the dreadful content, would never have been aired.  Standards of TV have gone backwards. 

I caught part of the Jeremy Vine radio show today when he was discussing with two guests the Kyle issue.  It resulted in one of them, an MP whose name I did not hear, walked off the show when Whine suggested that they couldn't take the Kyle show off air as so many people would be unhappy...........!!!  The MP called Vine "a joke" as he complained that he thought this would be a serious discussion and then walked. :y

When Vine said that I thought of historical public executions and how some of the public then must have been so upset when it ended! ::) ::)

Will the culling be live on TV, be good for ratings.

The first show will definitely have the eBay CEO  first up, closely followed by ecp. The list is endless :)

Before I start, I must say that I am not a fan of either Jeremy nor their shows. If it was done behind closed doors, then the fundamental principle behind the Jeremy Kyle/Jerry Springfield/Esther Rantzen/Kilroy etc shows is sound as they do actually try and help people. Also, the people who go into these programmes do so of their own free will, they may well be victims of their life choices, but they are certainly not victims* of the production companies.

The bluster you see on the screen is for audience benefit as it's an effective form of car crash TV.

The value of such shows to the TV companies is in the ratings... The more people tune in, the higher the value of the advertising revenue.

And that's the crux of it, the content is largely irrelevant as people will watch pretty much anything. It's all about selling product to the masses...

*self inflicted exploitation is not the same as being a victim.

Agreed DG :y :y

It is that 20th/21st question of how far should the State, Society or groups go to protect/control individuals freedom to take responsibility for their actions and take the consequences of their choices.  Our politicians have still not learnt that one. Should we protect the weakest most vulnerable, or let them make their own free decisions regardless of what could happen to them as apparently in the case of this suicide?

Let TB answer that one as I cannot in all honesty, believing in democracy and personal freedoms, subject to the law, and not a dictatorship where all decisions are made for us, including life or death! ;)

Yes, that is Capitalism in action.  In business I was always asked when submitting a 'Capex' (request for large capital expenditure) "will it benefit the business and produce profit?"

That question still goes round and round in my mind, and that will now be in the minds of ITV executives as they decide the future of The Jeremy Kyle show. How public opinion could damage their revenue, not how it affects the members of the public involved! :)

They are not mutually exclusive.  Whether the laws are made democratically* or in a dictorial manner is largely irrelevant.  Ultimately, we still believe in our Monarchy ;)

Some (many?) dictators become corrupt, and that's a big problem. But then do many democratically elected* leaders.


* In reality, we know that democracy doesn't work like the idealism its envisaged it should.  In fact, I'd argue quite the opposite, and because we have too many do-gooders and nimbys, anything that is agreed is watered down, unworkable, complex, expensive uselessness.

That is because of course we have a 'Reprensative' government which, contrary to popular belief, means the MP's are elected to act on our behalf, but actually do what they think is right and not necessarily what their constituents want. That process is a dangerous one for any MP, but since the creation of our Parliament, they often follow that course, as in the case of Brexit.

The MP's also have lobby groups wispering in their ears, and that is when you get the spineless, weak, and generally lacking MP's letting poor policies travel, whereas a bulldog type politician would kick those into touch regardless of the fallout. That is when we get the "watered down, unworkable, complex, expensive uselessness" decisions being made ;)

Indeed, and I'm sure serious questions will be asked by ITV's and other executives behind the scenes about the commercial viability of these programmes now.  Public, and MP opinion is one thing, but the risk of civil litigation, even criminal prosecution, along with loss of advertising revenue is quite another ::) ::)

Yep, and a committee of MP's are now going to discuss the whole subject of 'reality shows'.

If Brexit is anything to go by, that probably will not mean much.  But, as I stated before it will be the commercial pressures and threats of legal action on the TV companies that will dictate what happens next ;)

There is only me it seems, well who posts anyway!!  Wonder why??? ::) ::) ::) ::)

Anyway, as for JK, I cannot stick him as he just seems a pompous prat who thinks he can judge others publically, whilst making himself rich.  He turns me right off!!  :P :P

AS for other women liking him, I cannot see why, but perhaps for the common masses his male dominance and seeming ability to take control is attractive :o :o :o  It is more likely though that us women love gossip, and seeing others having their lives exposed has some sick appeal! :o :o ::) ::)

For me though, thank God him and his cruel programme is no more :y :y

That is because of course we have a 'Reprensative' government which, contrary to popular belief, means the MP's are elected to act on our behalf, but actually do what they think is right and not necessarily what their constituents want.
And obeying their constituents is precisely why democracy doesn't work. Too many people with differing views.  Dictorial options solve all that.

Take your Brexit example - the country voted to leave (and thus we should), but you can bet the most vocal people writing to their local MP are those not getting what they want, so I imagine that MPs are hearing a lot of anti Brexit views.  But its similar on any subject.


And dictators can shoot people, so that gets my vote.  Thumbs up to the North Korean nutter who used an anti aircraft gun to punish his head of (defence I think).  Proper job.

Which one?  There are lots of idiots on R2!  ;D

Personally I couldn't give 2 shits whether the JK show survived or not.   ::)

Apart from seeing it occasionally I've never watched it habitually, and when I have watched it, have wondered why people would subject themselves to such humiliation on national TV.  :-\

But hey, we live (supposedly) in a free country and nobody is forced to go on it or watch it, but people do and apparently plenty of people enjoy watching it.  It's survived for years after all.  ::)

It's unfortunate that this guy topped himself, but he was an adult who freely subjected himself to the lie detector test and got caught out.  If it was found that the lie detector test was rigged to provide 'good TV' then yes that would be something to get outraged about, but why get outraged about something that people do volutarily?

This is just another example of the 'we know better than you' lefty shite that is pervading our society.  Don't like it?  Ban it!  ::)  :P

TV, in general, is, and always has been, a dangerous tool. Climate change, menstruation, mental health are just three of the subjects that focus groups are urging the people who write the storylines for soaps and dramas to include. Whilst these are noble causes, I don't think the general soap-watching public should be brainwashed by the likes of Eastenders, Corrie, etc. As Jaime says, we've seen the effect that trash tv has had on the people that watch it and, if you can change people's behaviour towards the three subjects I mentioned above, then you can do it in much more sinister ways.
