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.

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.  ::)

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.

Opps, should have read entire thread before I replied.

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! ::) ::)

Ah, surely TB if I have understood your culling policy to date there will no longer be the target audience for such trash.  We that are left will be demanding only quality television :D :D ;)

Jeremy Vine is in the same market as Jeremy Kyle, just for outraged of Tunbridge Wells rather than Wayne and Waynetta from Croydon

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.
