Why is Jeremy Kyle allowed on TV?

Apologies in advance for this being a rather lazy, ranty and well… blindingly obvious post. I also know that the Jeremy Kyle show is just one in a huge number of shows that are appalling and disgusting and everything else, but this morning I woke up in my parent’s house where there is usually a television on (unlike in my flat where there is only a TV in the living room which I rarely watch because a) it’s bloody freezing in there and b) the telebox so tiny that it is genuinely better for my squinty eyes if I watch shows on my laptop) and this is what I heard.

“On you go! Go! Stop wasting my time, go and get smacked off your faces on somebody else’s time! You’re pathetic!”

I very nearly dropped my coffee and pancakes – did I just hear that properly? Yep. It was 9am and the world’s biggest fucktard Jeremy Kyle was sauntering around the screen puffing his pathetic chest out and flapping his arms around like a little juvenile bird attempting to look bigger in order to scare away rival males from his territory.

I despise Jeremy Kyle. I know, I know, we all do. But my hatred towards him is so strong it burns. I think I dislike him more than I dislike any other person in the whole wide world. I dislike a few people but most of the time, when I try really, really hard, I can sort of see their point of view, or understand where they are coming from, or something. I try hard to understand the views and opinions or people who I don’t agree with, because I find it makes it easier to have a rational discussion about a given topic and maybe even sway them to see my side of the argument, rather than laughing at them, saying “LOL OMG WUT LOOK WHAT @STUPIDIDIOT SAID EVERYONE LAUGH AT THEM AND MAKE THEM FEEL LIKE THEY ARE STUPID!!” I see this all the time, especially online. If you use this approach then great, you will probably generate a lot of followers and become a celebrity leader in your own little cult. But to everyone outside your self-selected group, you look like a dick. You look like a bully. I do not like bullies.

Jeremy Kyle is an undeniable bully. He undermines near enough every person who goes on his show (supposedly looking for “help”?) and has the most disgusting attitude and demeanor I have ever seen. You can almost see his penis enlarging every time he gets one over on someone or announces “THIS IS MY STAGE! Waaa I’m Jeremy Kyle and that is MY NAME and this is MY SHOW waaa waaa waaa OH FUCK OFF YOU PATHETIC PIECE OF SHIT! GET OFF MY STAGE! SHUT UP YOU SHOULDN’T EVEN HAVE KIDS!” etc. If I saw someone on the street behaving the way he does on stage, I would be on the phone to the police. I know, I know, it’s all hyped up for the cameras and is carefully edited: It’s not that bad, really. WHY is it “hyped up” for the cameras? Is this really entertainment? Watching the lives of members of our society fall apart in front of our eyes – oh no but it’s funny because actually they’re not real members of society because they’re drunks and junkies and not even educated and OMG THEY DON’T EVEN PAY TAX so they deserve the public humiliation. And actually, this article written by someone who used to work on the show sheds some light on what really happens behind the scenes (it does not make things any better):

Guests are wound up like a coiled spring before the show. It is an integral part of preparations – a process, sanctioned by the show’s editors, called “talking up”. It starts hours before the recording of each show, with researchers and producers flitting from guest to guest, talking about the first few points they will say on air. Normally our advice would be stirring, along the lines of “go out there, stand right in his face and point at him so he listens!” Contributors are advised to shout five main points, written by the production team, to support the story of the show. They are encouraged to stand over their opponent, to make their points more effectively… and the guest’s nervous confusion – many had never been on a talk show before – by playing a machiavellian game of “he said, she said” to ensure that feelings run high. For instance, I might tell a guest about another: “You will never believe what he is planning to say about you!”

Some people may claim that Kyle himself is all an act, you know, maybe he’s a genuine bloke in Real Life. Pardon me for being judgmental myself, but I cannot see an ounce of decency or empathy in his empty eyes. How could a humane being do this for a living?

I am aware that every now and then the “guests” on the show go away happier than when they arrived. The DNA test was the result they wanted, the lie detector test was passed and/or someone found a long lost relative. But that doesn’t make up for all the damage that is undoubtedly caused by this show not just to the guests themselves, but to the viewers, too.

The format of the Jeremy Kyle show has been largely accepted and normalised. I don’t watch it very often at all, but when I have the misfortune of catching some of an episode, it makes me feel so uncomfortable that I have to turn it off. But thousands of people don’t turn it off and so become desensitised to a revolting, self- righteous, unqualified bully yelling abuse at other human beings in the name of “entertainment” or worse, “therapy”. If I had children I wouldn’t let them watch this type of behaviour on TV. Why is the Jeremy Kyle Show still on TV? The world would be a better place without it.

    I totally, totally, totally agree with absolutely everything that you’ve said.

    • pygmylorisreid says:

      Thanks for taking the time to comment 🙂 It’s nice to share the rage!

    • Roger Pooleridge says:

      Totally disagree. It’s amazing television. It enlightens the viewers to the current state of the underclass of society and the helplessness they endure at the mercy of the current bullshit capitalistic elitest democracy that put these people into their positions. Wake up and smell the coffee.

      • Bo says:

        You spelt elitist wrong, and please don’t use words you don’t understand… Capitalistic elitist democracy? What the fuck? Stop trying to sound smart lmao…

        What the fuck does democracy, capitalism and elitism have to do with it? Underclass of society? LMAO… What makes them underclass? Do you even know the definition of democracy capitalism and elitism? You idiot…

      • Thomas says:

        It is obvious that you watch the Jeremy Kyle show by the language you use to express yourself. Obviously a sad lack of education. plus the fact that I never mentioned ” elitist ” I do know where you got this from , I feel very sorry for you. It’s obvious that this show has seriously effected you mind, you obviously need psychological treatment. What you don’t know is that I have contacted other official bodies concerning this matter . Don’t Worrie I’ll get this filth abolished . Yours sencearly Thomas Brunner

      • Bo says:

        Trying to be a nonconformist just for the sake of being cool.

      • Thomas says:

        You obviously don’t know what damage this program dose to elderly sensitive and younger people, the negative results on my 87 year old wife is devastating, psychological damaged for the rest of her life, if people want to go And see this filth it’s up to them . But this rubbish should not be inflcted on the public by being brodcast on the television, you wake up and smell the coffee, Thomas Brunner

      • john margetts says:

        your point is a subtle one which few people will understand without a grounding in Marxist philosophy. Nevertheless, what you say is essentially true.

    • Thomas says:

      Yes you’re right. Why is this show not legally band from being broadcast?

      • Jon says:

        You’re an idiot. The show is trying to help people. And look at you mister morality – slating someone who simply disagrees with you because they disagree with you, calling them stupid and blaming it on a TV show. Are you delusional?

        You are pathetic. And your unhealthy hatred for this show is clearly turning you into a person who is worse than Jeremy Kyle.

        What have you done to help anyone?

        All the people who go on this show would not end up in as good outcomes without it.

        Think about all the children whose parents have resolved their hatred for one and other enough to allow their child to have two parents… if you’re really as smart as you seem to think you are you would realise that the child’s care is much more important than the ‘exploitation’ of these people who chose to go on the show.

        Stop forming an opinion on something you know nothing about and then having a go at someone who sees how full of it you are for using words you think they don’t understand, and for spelling errors – grow up.

        You know nothing about it because you said yourself you watch it for a few minutes before switching it off… Cant believe I wasted ten minutes on this obviously rubbish website.

      • Evie Addy says:

        Because it actually saved some people by tipping the police about a few kids and the living conditions they were in. we’re talking young kids as well. Not to mention that he may seem like a bully especially when it comes to drug addicts and alcoholics but you can’t help people who don’t want to be helped and people go to him because he tells you about your ass and most of the time that’s what these people need. but the Biggest reason is because it makes money and also people are sad enough to watch it in the first place.

    • Please feel free to join my Facebook group.. JEREMY “THE GERM” KYLE. i am trying to get enough people to join so we can get rid of this scum of our TV sets.

  2. jon says:

    Spot On. This totally sums up my feelings about this man-bully. Also he is employed by ITV who i think are dragging this country lower than i ever thought i would see on my television. ITV focus way to much on the “car crash” trash TV and trashier elements of our society and it keeps thriving which in turn leaves me very disheartened and sad

  3. Sharon says:

    I agree. I happened to see it on a hotel TV in London last week at a bit where Kyle was telling some young girl that she was ‘disgusting’ and ‘a horrible person.’ She might have did some questionable things in her life but no human being should be degraded like this. Everyone has the capacity to learn and grow and change and often people need love to do that not contempt. And self-love is the starting point. How can people so utterly dejected, broken or lost ever get back up after a beating from Kyle live on TV. Yes, maybe all self-inflicted – but in the hegemony of the culture we are in; many people are blind to it. I am sure that this kind of class war…for that is what it is….. is feeding the divide, not just in opinion, but in our society between the well off and the ‘benefit scroungers’ as they’re often labelled by our loving government. Surely there is something we can rise up and do??

    • Jon says:

      How do you discipline your children? With hugs and kisses? People don’t learn that way… They merely pretend to learn. Provoking a strong emotional response in someone is the best way to change their behaviour. If someone is doing something despicable, why should we hesitate to tell them.
      The emotional damage they receive from this show is nothing to what they might be causing to other people in their lives.
      Husband cheating on his wife is much more damaging to the wife, and her ability to trust people in the future than Jeremy Kyle calling you disgusting for doing it on national TV. At least then they might learn.

    • Evie Addy says:

      Telling people about their asses is often something that needs to be done for people like that so they can better themselves. you’re mother wouldn’t give you a kiss and cuddle for being naughty so why should an adult expect any different? and self love is not the starting point for these people. Self Respect is the starting point. learning to set goals and stick to them and learning to say NO

    • john margetts says:

      you are right Sharon but unfortunately our society is so dysfunctional that the only way to change things for the better is to stop the elite rulers of the planet causing individualistic selfishness, collective nationalistic fear and the replacement of spiritual depth with trivial materialism. In so far as stopping this Jeremy Kyle from causing yet further damage , the only way is for people, en masse to stop watching it.

  4. Magnus says:

    I work at a psychiatric ward where it is on every morning. Like you, I reeeeally hate that dick. I try not to hate, but I just hate him so much and so specifically. He is scum. He is unworthy.

  5. Simon says:

    I am currently unemployed which is painfull for me because I am a worker not a benfit scrounger like politicians, t.v shows & peoples opnions made up for them by what they see & hear from the latter. Fuck J.Kyle, ( punk slag ) his team, I.T.V & 99% of it’s guests it’s people like this that make the lifes of people who are genuinely unemployed difficult. J.Kyle is a patronising & obnoxious asshole who is far to well paid for making SOME people who have got issues looking stupider than they might be. I wouldnt give Kyle, guests or his staff the time of day. I dont watch this so called t.v show I’d rather run a marthon in full kit ( Army Kit ) in blistering heat or terrential rain !.

    • Andrew Davis says:

      I know exactly how you feel mate, i’m currently unemployed to, and hate it. this prick on TV, Offends the lower classes and the unemployed with the shit that comes out his mouth.
      Has anyone noticed, ordinary people come on and he looks down on them and abuses them, but, when its a celebrity who has done worse things, he give them more respect. To me its called fascism.

      • Please feel free to join my Facebook group.. JEREMY “THE GERM” KYLE. i am trying to get enough people to join so we can get rid of this scum of our TV sets.

      • Jon says:

        Fascism… You lot are all just annoyed because he stirs up about people being on benefits.

        I don’t know if you realised but he does that to encourage people to work and not be complacent living on benefits. I know you won’t like to hear this but a lot of people are too complacent and it is taxing, literally, on other people, which isn’t really fair.

        Instead of moaning about people who moan about benefits, why don’t you just happily keep trying to get a job… No luck, then volunteer and build up your CV. That’s what I am doing now and I don’t resent people who don’t like BENEFIT SCROUNGERS – they do exist, not that everyone who claims benefits is one.

        Fascism doesn’t exist in this country. If it did you wouldn’t have benefits.
        *eyes rolling

    • john margetts says:

      well said, and the more people doing positive things with their time when unemployed instead of watching this tripe the better.

  6. jlw22@btinternet.com says:

    i loathe the way he drools over z list celebs who have been drug addicts ect; and acts like he is a serious interviewer. and when unfortunate children are brought on i could vomit. he is a bully and very dangerous. some of these guests he abuses clearly have learning difficulties. i would not be surprised if we hear one day of a murder or suicide after enduring his rants. he is a cruel man.!!!!

    • Evie Addy says:

      how would these people know what DNA tests and lie detector tests if they had learning difficulties? the shit he comes out with may be cruel and not what you want to hear but its not his job to be your friend its his job to help you. and telling people about their asses and making them reflect on it is the first step.

  7. Peter says:

    I feel exactly the same way. I live in New Zealand and that show still airs every week on the free to air television. It makes me sick. I wonder if he’s proud of himself after every humiliating show? If he considers himself a decent person? He definitely shouldn’t. I hate him and all his gobbling filthy guests and every single person that has anything to do with the running of that show, pathetic cowards getting entertainment at the expense of less fortunate peoples lives. Jeremy Kyle is a weak, pathetic excuse of a human being.

    • Jon says:

      I love how your post has a combination of sympathy for his guests, like your so nice, and you also call them gobbling and filthy.

      Not one of these posts, or the article for that matter, has any consistency what so ever.

  8. sam says:

    how dare he tell people to shut up when they try and make a point “its called the jeremy kyle show” the man is a disgusting human being, i would love to meet him on the street and see how big a man he would be then, he is the biggest prick that walks on two feet and when he says don’t worry about them they should be at work if they were at work they prick wouldn’t have a show would he i hate him the piece of shit.

    • Jon says:

      Its called a sense of humour, you should try it.

      He says they should be at work, as a joke, because the show is filmed at a time people usually work. He means no offence by it.

      Im starting to understand why all of you oversensitive people find it so appalling.

      Just grow a pair.

    • Evie Addy says:

      if you watch the show do you see the guests shouting at and over each other? this is why he tells them to shut up.

  9. sam says:

    he is the biggest liar who walks on two feet he lied to his ex wife telling her he was dying and had only months to live as he had a heart problem and he is a thief who emptied their bank account as well what an ugly lowlife piece of shit

    • Jon says:

      That’s in the past and you have no right to judge him for that. Why don’t you judge him for what he does on stage instead of his private life. And don’t say he’s very happy to judge other people because he does that for a reason… He does it because they bring his issues to him and he has to help them see the error if their ways – it’s what he gets paid to do.

      Either way, the media have a way of twisting opinions that is much more prevalent in society than any of this stupid idea that he is brainwashing people – we all form our own ideas about things based on what we see.

      The media, however, can manipulate details to make anyone look horrible. You probably all also believe that Donald Trump actually wants to have sex with his daughter because you saw a funny picture and caption on Facebook.

      What he did probably wasn’t quite so one sided in reality. Not that its relevant in any way.

  10. Thomas says:

    This program is very damaging for youg people and sensitive individuals. Why on earth is this perverse nonsense allowed. Should not be broadcast on TV . Is there no legal procedure to ban this obscene show ?

    • Andrew Davis says:

      If you think about it, he “Incites Hatred” towards disadvantaged people, and people with disabilities.
      Isn’t it illegal to “Incite Hate”???? I thought that was a crime at least.
      He’s had 10 years doing it, so if convicted, he would spend a lot of time behind bars.
      Good riddance too!!!!!!

      • Jon says:

        How on earth does he incite hatred?

      • Evie Addy says:

        I’ve never seen him incite hate towards disadvantaged or disabled people in any of his episodes so that sounds like utter bull shit. in fact I’ve only ever seen sympathy and empathy from this guy especially considering that he has a mental disorder himself.

    • Please feel free to join my Facebook group.. JEREMY “THE GERM” KYLE. i am trying to get enough people to join so we can get rid of this scum of our TV sets.

      • Jon says:

        Sounds like a page to incite hatred to me. Why don’t you just leave people alone.

      • It seems you like the sound of your own voice. You comments prove the point. You comment on everything and to everyone who does not share your view. Your name is posted all over this site. You seem to TROLL and that is all you got in your parasite life. LOL.

  11. Thomas says:

    For the attention of Pygmy Loris. Just for your information. an elitist is someone who believes in rule by the elite group also an intellectual moralist . I.e., someone who dose not watch the Jeremy Kyle show . Witch is obviously not your case . Thomas Brunner

  12. lorac40 says:

    Well said Jeremy Kyle disgusts me, i cant stand him ..his programme should be axed ..

  13. dalepaul58@gmail.com says:

    I’ve watched it a couple of times. The thing i hate most about it is when he always says “Shut up, i’m talking, that’s why it’s called the Jeremy Kyle show”. It’s supposed to be a talk show but he never gives anyone the chance to explain their side of the story before he starts judging them, it’s the same with the pathetic audience booing them when they come on stage before they have the chance to say anything.

    TV these days is absolutely crap, i would rather spend my time on the internet.


    • Thomas Brunner says:

      All this comments don’t have much effect. Nothing is done to stop this filth being broadcast on the TV . Anyone watching this programme must think that all the people in England are like that, but don’t realise that it’s only a minute percentage of the population that behave in this disgusting manner. If certain people what to see this show on stage, they are welcome to do so . But to inflict it on the general public via TV should not be allowed . But nothing is done about it . As I don’t live in England, there’s nothing much I can do about abolishing this Jeremy Vile show . This program has a devastating effect on elderly and young people, mind boggling permanent mental damage. Pornografy is not broadcast on the TV . Why is this show broadcast?

    • Jon says:

      I think when he says that its actually because they’re talking too much and being incomprehensible. This allows him to control the situation and get the information out which is helpful to the situation, with the aim of resolving the issues of his guests, which he is presented with.

      IMO, he’s very good at it, as well. It’s not an ego thing, but it’s him trying to do the best he can to maintain control of the situation and bring the guests to their desired outcome.

    • Evie Addy says:

      yeah but then he cant get both sides of the story if they are all shouting at each other so the best way to get both sides is to tell them all to shut up. its got nothing to do with judgement

  14. […] I am not sitting next to a screaming vomiting baby. Or worse, Jeremy Kyle […]

  15. Thomas Brunner says:

    Nothing is done to stop this mind disturbing Jeramy Kyle show. All this is rather like a talk show without results. As I don’t live in England it’s hard to find legal advice. One day I hope someone will blow him up, I would do so except that I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in prison over this so called human being, his not worth it

  16. Jon says:

    What a load of crap. Writer of this clearly hasn’t watched or thought about The Jeremy Kyle Show enough to understand and form a proper opinion. Yes it is kind of trash TV to watch. Yes the people who go on the show are exploited for entertainment. And yes Jeremy Kyle can be a bit rude to his guests…

    Guess what! He’s saying what any reasonable person – who uses reason – Is thinking. It is bad to live on benefits. It is bad to cheat on your partner, and to lie about it. It is bad to steal. It is good to know if your child is yours biologically and it is good to resolve issues like this in a group intervention type of way. He gathers people. He commands these interventions and prevents (as much as he can) all the parties from getting at each others throats.

    Even if they are wound up to blow up on stage, at least they’re letting all their feelings out in the 20 minutes they have to do so and not reserving their feelings in the mollycoddle attitude that the writer of this article would probably promote.

    It’s not Jerry Springer egging on the fights between the guests now is it? He simply helps these people to resolve their issues where they have tried and failed to resolve it on their own. People chose to use his show for whatever reason – that’s their choice and not yours to look down on.

    Jeremy facilitates these group intervention type resolutions for these issues in peoples’ lives better than any show like it… Yes – Even though he’s not a counsellor. He just happens to be very good at what he does and it wouldn’t be possible to have a show like his if nobody watched it for entertainment value. People who go on know what they are signing up for anyway. They do it because they need help and can’t sort things alone.

    Yes he has had his own problems in life but why should that mean he can’t try to help others to improve their situations and that of their children. To think how someone can get so wrapped up in their own careless opinion that they would slate a show that is only trying to help people… Hope you feel good about it.

  17. FIYORI BELAY says:

    He is a bully!! using under privilege poor people who can’t defend themselves for his show is his job? He treat them with disrespect, he should talk to them like human being, he have no right to treat people like he does, he might help them at the end but shouting at them and bullying them is for his ego not to help them. He cares about his show, i feel sorry and sad for them. Being polite will not cost him, they are already there humiliating themselves, if he is really helper that would be enough for humiliation for them. Get some manner.
    I bet he has lots of problem in his personal life, he pretend he is the god.

  18. Chris says:

    Hi there. I just changed channels and saw Jeremy Kyle – and switched it off as quickly as I could. I then searched for ‘how is Jeremy Kyle on TV’ and came here. I’m so glad to have found an equally appalled community. What a scum bag.

  19. Chris says:

    PS I especially like this article’s description of Jeremy as a ‘fucktard’.

  20. Michael says:

    Absolutely agree with everything you said.why indeed is he aLlowes to continue.

  21. You, Sir, will go straight to Heaven for writing this article! ABSOLUTELY epic. You have raised very important truths that I’m sure a lot of people feel the same way – the only ones on this forum who disagree are of course the Internet Trolls (smartarses who leave Rape Threats everywhere), of course they love anything that preys on the voiceless! Jeremy Kyle is to the modern day what Gladiator Bloodsports were to the Roman Times. It’s a completely disgusting, disgraceful ‘show’ that creates entertainment out of exploiting + simply terrorizing publicly, Vulnerable People who’s personal lives are in turmoil, whilst pretending to help them. The man (Kyle) is not just a Bully but a Bully of the lowest order because he has NO SHAME. He calls himself an ‘Expert’. I can’t believe that an audience of thousands of bloodthirsty British people (not saying all Brits are like that), eagerly crowded around their Television Sets, cheering and yelling together at a title such as, “You slept with your own Father so why shouldn’t I kill you?”. Just generally, from all the people who watch it, to the Studio Staff and Audience…they have something in common and that something is how they make you want to take a shower – they’re repulsive Characters. Like you said, in that studio filled with hostile people/environment, they sit Victims down (who already seem distressed to start off with), deliberately PROVOKE THEM with a range of pressures or insults, turn the heat up and push them to the maximum human capacity, and then DEMONIZE them when they react strongly (as anyone in their position would) and get dragged away by the beefy Security Guards- it’s like Bear-Baiting or Bullfighting. One Victim even asked Kyle, “Why don’t you try taking me on without your Bodyguards?” Plus Kyle himself SCREAMS at them like you showed, as if they’re Toddlers. But the reason why that Victims get so angry is also because of the nature of Judgemental personal Comments that Kyle dares to squawk at them. When situations like theirs should be dealt not only with the utmost decency and calmness but also mutual trust, boundaries and RESPECT. It is literally abuse packaged off as Reality TV entertainment and it also encourages a culture of abuse. I cannot believe that it is being allowed to Air on TV at all.

    Thank you that bitch GAVE SYMPATHY TO A CHEATING WOMAN. The boyfriend cheated, yeah, but if she cheats BOTH ARE AT FAULT, yet that sucker-upper goes to sympathize with the fucking women for lying. Hope that bitch rots in hell with the whales who he wants to get laid with.
