Five rules for watching Jerry Springer
3 March 2005 | by sun_hill_85See all my reviews

1 - Always expect one person to say "We've been married for (insert number of months/years here), but I'm here to tell you I've been sleeping with (insert name here)".

2 - Always expect the audience to say the usual things - "JER-RY! JER-RY! JER-RY! etc.", "STEEEEEEVE!", "SIT DOWN WHORE!", "GO TO OPRAH!", "TAKE IT OFF!", "LO-SER! LO-SER!", etc, plus the usual cheers or boos or whatever.

3 - If there are any strippers on the show, always expect at least one of them to show part of their "anatomy".

4 - Always expect an audience member to "take it off" (and in episodes from 2002 onwards, expect Todd to give them some beads for that).

5 - Always expect to hear the terrible disclaimer: "Please take care of yourselves - and each other." 'Nuff said.
