    Well, his name was in the title of the show...
    Yes Iím sure he had total autonomy.

    Yeah my BIL's friend has been on there and can corroborate all that. They would basically encourage you to get pissed the night before, take you to the studio the next day by taxi and keep you alone in a room for hours on end, interrupted only by 'researchers' who would run in and say "oh my god, I just heard your other half call you a slag!" "Are you going to stand there and let them get away with that?" "I can't believe he would do that to you!" etc.

    'Human bear baiting' is spot on TBF. Society is probably better off without it, but like most people I'd be lying if I said I hadn't enjoyed an episode or two while off sick

    I don't think anyone is saying he did. But when your name is synonymous with a certain type of TV show, you kinda have to take a lot of the responsibility when something goes horribly wrong.

    It is nonsense but it still happens, same happened with Noel Edmunds.

    Do you think Kyle should bear any responsibility?

    If nothing else, they clearly failed to review any after care policies after love island contestants started offing themselves.

    Ha, as far as I recall he was just one of the friends who gets invited on to walk out pointing his finger going "YOU FACKING LOIER!"

    Honestly, the whole show was 1 step up from hobo boxing.

    IT was literally there for people to point and laugh and the poor people with problems and i for one am glad it is cancelled (even if the circumstances behind its cancellation are sad).

    I have noticed though that people are quick to try and make a few pennies from it (and papers/news websites are all too eager to give it to them). I did a cardinal sin on the train today and peaked over someones shoulder at the paper they were reading only (metro) only to see an article titled - I was on the show wot had that man who killed himself (paraphrasing as i cant remember the actual title).

    This show being cancelled means nothing unless all media (including those trash magazines) changes.

    It's essentially no different to the olden days where they used to throw shit at people in stocks. The only difference is that you give them a mini bar beforehand.

    What was the ITV equivalent of Kilroy? I seem to remember a woman's impassioned defense of anal sex.

    It will be back in six months relaunched under a different name.

    There is too much money to be made in humiliating people on national television.

    Given he probably had huge influence in it's production and constantly chastised and verbally abused the guests, attributing a lot of the blame to the host is fair.

    @whatfruitlivesagain Probably. Somebody further up the thread mentioned putting people in the stocks and throwing shit at them. That could be a safer, more humane alternative.

    We could still give them the mini-bar first.

    The best sign Kyle is a cunt is Piers Morgan's recent tweet in this river of shit defending him.

    I'm amazed it took as long as it did for this to happen.

    As a sad reminder - The show was almost cancelled some ten years ago in a cost-cutting move but was kept on due to a public backlash. Unfortunately the TV watching public, especially those watching at home at 10am, loved seeing people on the lowest rung of society's ladder dragged across coals.

    It should be a stark lesson for all of us. But no one cares and no one will learn anything.

    If you've ever seen an episode of this, Jeremy is always shouting/humiliating the guest(s). So yes.. he is to blame.

    Itís just so reductive to scapegoat Jeremy Kyle for it. Yes heís the brand, and heís also a cunt, so cool, he can go down in flames. Thatís fine.

    But thereís a huge network of corporate types, sponsors and affiliates who have been profiteering of this nastiness for years, and they didnít even have to get their hands dirty. They can now move onto their next theatre of the misery project with their reputations and salaries in tact.

    And frankly, Iíll admit to having enjoyed laughing at the Ďchavsí on Jeremy Kyle years back. Iím a bit more socially aware these days, but Iím sure plenty of others happily putting Kyle in the stocks have also played some small part in this happening.

    (All of) last week's front pages:
    Some cunt managed to do what billions did before her, and spat another cunt-to-be out her actual cunt.
    Inside! Photos of a fucking foot.
    This week's front pages:
    Some cunt who made a name for himself parading cunts on TV for the amusement of lazy cunts, gets blamed for something (whatever), and there are photos of him apparently outside.
    Inside! Photos of said cunt coming home again.

    It's a good job there's fuck all else going on in the world.

    I shouldn't complain, it's something other than the last 2 fucking years of "look at these useless cunts you all blindly vote for, you dopey cunts".

    Cunts.
