Do you know Jerry?
By James W, Friday 3rd September 2010

He has been a musician, a Mayor and a game show host but Jerry Springer is mostly famous for his outrageous talk show and it's arrived on CBS Reality.

Here we expose 10 fascinating facts about everyone's favourite ringmaster. Je-rry! Je-rry! Je-rry!

1. His full name is Gerald Norman Springer and was born in Highgate, London in 1944.

2. Springer became the Mayor of Cincinnati in 1977 for a term. He was the 56th for anyone counting.

3. The Jerry Springer Show began September 30th 1991, the format was pedestrian and nothing like the show it is today.

4. It changed format in 1994 and became a ratings winner. This new style show gained large audience figures covering such controversial topics as fetishes, adultery and err, people who loved their pets a bit too much!

5. He is sometimes given the title The Sultan Of Salaciousness.

6. Ringmaster! is the title of Jerry Springer's autobiography.

7. The Head (or Director) of Security on the show, Steve Wilkos has his own spin-off named (surprisingly) The Steve Wilkos Show.

8. Jerry has popped up on such shows at The Simpsons, soap opera Days Of Our Lives and Dancing With The Stars where he came a respectable 5th.

9. He turned to musical theatre earlier this year starring in the show Chicago.

10. Talking of music, Jerry Springer - The Opera opened to critical acclaim and much notoriety on 29th April 2003. Though it has very strong content it has gone on to win many awards.

You can catch The Jerry Springer Show on CBS Reality and as Jerry would say,
"Until next time, take care of yourselves, and each other!"
