    Jerry Springer was probably the craziest though back then. Post your fav episodes?

    I remember this guy...



    And believe America's about ripe enough today for someone just like him. Only more vile and much more extreme. :(

    Nothing will top the You Are/You Are NOT The Father stuff though in my mind. That was some interesting television.

    I think half of America is him. lol

    On a sidenote, I was watching an ancient episode of Andy Griffith and Barney Fife asks if Morton Downey was going to replace him as a singer... I had to look that up. I had no idea Morton Downey, Jr.'s dad was a famous singer/pianist. They apparently called him "The Irish Nightingale". lol.

    More on-topic, I couldn't stand any of these talk shows. It was like they created these shows to make people dumber. I think they originally started like a normal talk-show, but then they realized a large segment of the population went for the crazy, so they tried to get crazier and crazier.

    I didn't know that either about his father. I found "Where the River Shannon Flows" a moment ago. I have to say, for that era, it's pretty good.

    And yeah, I don't think you're wrong about half of America. I'm afraid someone's going to come along and... nm. :)

    I spit my drink when he started singing in this clip... it just hits you like a Category 5. It starts around 1:04, but wait for it... let it build up... don't fast forward. lol

    I totally remember that one. They sat the thugs up front so they could have a go at the guests.

    To their defense the guest were narrated to be despicable scumbags. Cholos were just serving justice to the woman beaters/abusers.

    This show used to air late nights on channel 13. He had a "feud" with Jerry Springer who had a guest appearance.

    I didn't like it when it aired. The comedy was just too hammy.

    ....then I watched the entire episode you posted. Some of the jokes were funny.
