Jerry Springer, 78, appeared on David Yontef’s podcast,
“Behind The Velvet Rope”
to talk about his popular daytime tv show Jerry Springer. The pop culture icon admitted that his long-standing program
“ruined the culture.”
When asked if he assumes the title of
“granddad of reality TV,”
The British-American former host instead apologized for his nationally syndicated show.
“No, I just apologize. I’m so sorry. What have I done? I’ve ruined the culture,”
“I just hope hell isn’t that hot because I burn real easy. I’m very light-complected, and that kind of worries me,”
he joked. He added, I’m
“just a schlub who got lucky,”
and that show business was
“never a thought in my mind.”
Jerry Springer first aired on television in 1991 and has lasted for 28 seasons. The show invited guests to speak on a variety of topics that usually led to outrageous behavior.
