Now whilest i think everyone has a right to apply to what shows they like i really think that some extra layer of safeguard should be had to apper of this show just watching now

The people on apper to have very low eye qs ( this is not a dig btw) i really dont think they can have any idea of how they are representing themselves on TV i would aimagin this would effect getting a job ect or are these people actors like TOWIEconfused

I belive that the philpots were on JK its the same
With BGT and things like that people are being taken advantage of on this show

I used to watch Maury a US DNA and lie detector testing programme. He was lovely, and didn't pass judgement or have a go at his guests. He was always very sympathetic and kind, even when the 20th man was proved not to be the father, < sometimes>.

The programme was more about the quest in finding the father. Must say though, that the guests were more dignified and polite, compared with those on Jeremy Kyle here. .

In the Maury one, I learned 2 things -. it is possible to have twins by 2 different fathers and did happen that a woman conveived at 49 on the last day of her monthly cycle!!

I won't watch it. It is horribly exploatiative

Domjolly Tue 19-Mar-13 15:56:27

digerd well never let it be said were to old for a education grin

Domjolly Tue 19-Mar-13 15:57:45

I also think they should make it over 18 to go on the show not over 16

Are you kidding me?! Maury was the most exploitive talk show of the lot. I used to feel incredibly uncomfortable watching it.

Domjolly Tue 19-Mar-13 16:00:05

See for me i just find jk the worst one he shouts at the gusest and whilest some of what he is saying is ture to some extent its the venom he say it with espically as he has a very checkered past himslef

The one on now is particularly exploitative. They are teenage kids FFS hmm

A girl I knew from my class at secondary school was on it once. Some hideous scandal about sleeping with her sister's boyfriend or some other drama filled rubbish. She came across really badly.

What the show didn't mention was that she had struggled at school, her mum killed herself when she was 12, her Dad was always drinking and, while I don't know if he was actually abusive, he was really scary, she was pregnant by age 15 to a much older boyfriend who just took off, she left school with no qualifications and she has basically had fuck all chance at getting herself a decent life.

Those are the kind of people this show exploits and I think it's disgusting.

Do you know if she was paid?

Did you know she was going on or were you just shocked to see her sitting there there one day whilest sitting at home

Yes, I am a bit long in the tooth now, but still excites me to learn new things that interest me.

Jeremy Kyle tries to control the show but fails miseraby and is getting boring as he is always the father. With Maury you never knew who of the 3/4 were the father or none of them!!
I enjoyed Maury, but dislike the jerry Springer Show

Domjolly Tue 19-Mar-13 16:28:13

I also wonder as a number of these people are involved with ss why ss dont advise then not to go on i sure those with children in care this can help there case

Domjolly Tue 19-Mar-13 16:29:17

I ment cant help there case

JK annoys me far more than any of his 'guests'. I'm surprised he hasn't been punched in the face before now. Irritating spittle mouthed smug bastard.
Don't know if you've had the pleasure of the USA version? Equally awful hmm

I often wonder how JK sleeps at night as choosing to make a living by openly sneering at life's more misfortunate people seems like a weird vocation to me. I think of him as no better than a pimp, exploiting other peoples less than better starts in life for his and the TV companies financial gain.

Even his recent episode of testicular cancer failed to inspire much sympathy in me as I find his TV persona so repulsive and odious and i'm usually a compassionate type of person

Domjolly Tue 19-Mar-13 16:37:34

I wouldnt mind him being so smug is his background wasnt so similar to those he chooses to sneer at

I was just like pot calling a kettel black anyone

akaemmafrost Tue 19-Mar-13 16:40:29

Maury's Guests "dignified and polite"? All those men dancing round the stage when Maury tells them they are "Not The Father!" and the women (and usually their mothers) screaming and flopping around on the flood when potential "Baby-Daddy No 9" is given a pass?

I agree about JK being exploitative but I still watch it.

akaemmafrost Tue 19-Mar-13 16:41:21

Floor! Not flood obviously

Mrscumberbatch, penis gloves were meant to be peanuts grin

He is an arrogant, oily, cowardly, thick, TWAT of the highest order.
The episode where somebody decks him will be a ratings winner for sure.

My friend is a social worker and is regularly asked to provide statements to the Jeremy Kyle show when her clients apply to go on. It takes up valuable time that she could and should be spending actually supporting the families. If the families don't get their 5 minutes of fame, she gets the blame, thus undermining the trust she has worked do hard to build up. The show helps no one.

nancerama Tue 19-Mar-13 16:43:26

Did anyone see him being set up by Ant and Dec. His reaction was really scary - made me feel sick. He showed his true colours as an abusive control freak.

Domjolly Tue 19-Mar-13 16:51:24

nancerama please say your kidding cant ss advise them not to go i am shocked they would support there cliants on going on the show

Dear lord what have we come to when we have people begging ss to tell JK what a mess there lives are so they can get on the show confused

Dose this ever get brought up in case conferences i woulld imagin this would defo go agisnt you when trying to get your child back

DPs ex has been on it with her partner. They had dna test, which proved he was childs father, and a lie detector as she had supposedly cheated while he in prison (nice, I know) which she failed all three questions on.

DP exes family are decent people and were apparently horrified when asked by JKs team to go on the show. Her Dad especially was apalled.

Guess what? Hes back in prison.......

DP is embarrassed to have been her partner.

Domjolly I don't know, sorry, I only heard about it and how it went through facebook, I saw a badly uploaded clip but I didn't watch and I don't know her anymore.
