‘The Jerry Springer Show’ Officially Canceled

Repeats of The Syndicated Talker Will Begin on The CW in Daytime Next Fall

Following the recent news that “The Jerry Springer Show” has ended production comes word that the veteran syndicated daytime talker has been officially canceled by NBCUniversal. Debuting on Sept. 30, 1991, what started as a legitimate issues-oriented and political talk show, a longer version of the commentary for which Springer had gained local fame as a reporter and anchor, slowly morphed into more controversial topics and, ultimately, an arena for daily dysfunction and slugfests. Viewers began watching in droves after the switch — “The Jerry Springer Show” even topped the “Queen” of Daytime, Oprah Winfrey, in one season. And that resulted in a lengthy 27-season run.

Results of “The Jerry Springer Show” will begin airing on The CW in daytime this fall.
