Gerald Norman Springer, to the public known as Jerry Springer, is a famous British-American talk show host, television anchor, game show host, television personality, as well as a television producer. Jerry Springer is perhaps best known as the host of a popular tabloid talk show called “The Jerry Springer Show”. The show debuted on television screens in 1991, and ever since then has attracted a large viewership. “The Jerry Springer Show” initially started out as a political talk show and had such guests as Jesse Jackson and Oliver North on it. However, in order to achieve higher ratings and increase the popularity of the series, Jerry Springer began delving into more controversial and provocative topics, which in turn contributed to the success of the show in the long run and influenced the change in many other talk shows that wanted to be as popular as Jerry Springer’s series. “The Jerry Springer Show” became so popular that it even beat Oprah Winfrey’s talk show called “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in 1998 in ratings.

However, with great fame and success came a lot of criticism and suspicion that the fights that usually broke out during the show were fake and scripted. As the creators of the show were forced to reduce the amount of violence shown on the screen, the ratings of “The Jerry Springer Show” decreased as well, nevertheless, over the years the show maintained a high enough average number of viewers in order to keep it on air.

A famous television talk show host, how rich is Jerry Springer? According to sources, Jerry Springer’s net worth is estimated to be $45 million. Needless to say, the majority of Jerry Springer’s net worth and wealth came from his involvement in the entertainment industry.

Quotes

#Quote
1I think technology has changed the way we see things. Human behavior has not changed in the last 3,000 years. There's nothing that has ever been on our show that isn't in the Bible, that isn't in literature, that isn't in Shakespeare.
2(What's changed over the new millenium): "I've never been older... "
3If a wrestler could be governor, I could be president!
4On running for Senate - "I would love to have done it. But I have to have seperation from the TV show. Research showed I could win, but people would want the show to be over before the campaign. It's hard to think about Iraq in the evening when I'm dancing with transvestities in the afternoon."
5I would never watch my show. I'm not interested in it.
