Jeremy Kyle v Love Island

  Govan1x 16:10 10 Jun 2019

Probably a big difference on this but the same verdict.

Jeremy Kyle put off the air because one of its contestants died.

Love island in the same boat where one or two contestants have died.

I just wondered why one of the shows got axed and not the other.

Obviously there must have been a different situation for this to happen.

Personally myself I did not watch either just wondered what the difference is or was.

Not a great subject to talk about but just interested in why the difference.

FE just delete this if you think it is insensitive.

Jeremy Kyle and Jerry Springer's shows have had vulnerable subjects. When asked by Jeremy Paxman whether or not it was stupid, Jerry quite openly said it was because it makes good TV. It is the public humiliation in front of millions that is wrong.

For reality ellimination shows such as The Apprentice, Big Brother, and the like, again public humiliation but not through personal disputes. Only those who want their 15 minutes fame, but with little ambition through which to achieve it.

All of these shows are lowest common denominator TV. Very superficial, puerile rubbish. Aimed at people of low intellect and populated by vacuous individuals just looking for their fifteen minutes of fame!

I agree. With even more crap on TV over the last 10 years or so, the TV license to me became increasingly poor value for money. Now I don't watch or record live TV. YouTube is my entertainment.
