‘The Jerry Springer Show’ Ends Production

Encore Telecasts Will Air on The CW in Daytime This Fall

Veteran NBCUniversal talker “The Jerry Springer Show,” staple in syndication since 1991 (and the one talk show to out-rate the then dominant “Oprah Winfrey Show” for one season – in 1997-98) has stopped production on new episodes. Encore telecast will begin airing on The CW in daytime this fall.

While not officially canceled, at least not yet, NBCU counterparts “The Maury Povich Show” and “The Steve Wilkos Show” are confirmed to return next season.

Hosted by former politician Jerry Springer, the show has often been referred to as “trash TV” and a “guilty pleasure” for its frequent use of outrageous guests and low-brow storylines.

  1. I thought that Jerry Springer or Murray were going to end this year I believe this will be the last contract that Murray signs I believe that will end in 2020. Jerry Springer for most of his run was on WWMT 96 to 05 then WXSP from 05 to 18 repeats move to CW7 this fall at 3PM.
