Well nobody took any real issue with it for well over 14 years, and long before that with Jerry Springer. People queued up to be on the show, and there was a willing audience.

Yup I fully realise that I just think it is so cringe worthy and don't see what people see in it. imo.

Years ago it was predicted that reality TV will crash and burn with the death of a participant.

How long before someone dies on something like Survivor before more of these daft shows suffer the same fate?

Like most if not all reality shows - it isn't reality. The producers wind up the guests into various desirable emotional states before the show, producers tell them clothes to wear and how to wear them. The list goes on. All under the promise of working something out.

Bring back Jeremy Kyle!

 

Why should shows like this be banned? At least it takes moral position, albeit setting the bar far, far too low.

 

There are plenty of worse things on television, and my concern is programmes which depict 'reality' without any criticism having a normative effect on the population. The next show to replace Jeremy Kyle may do away with the condemnation, and just be a platform for airing dirty laundry.

The Jeremy Kyle Show wasn't cancelled because a recent participant died and apparently killed himself.  It was cancelled because a state body then used that death as a justification for an inquiry into television. If the inquiry had not been announced then the death would just be more "good" publicity for the show.

 

You can see the obvious link because ITV were suitably forewarned and cancelled the show in the morning before the inquiry was announced in the afternoon. The broadcasting networks are motivated to avoid greater state interference in their business so this is a normal commercial response to reduce the potential impact of rapidly escalating risks.

Just wait. A new iteration of his show will get picked up by a streaming service either Netflix or Amazon. Some how people in Hollywood keep falling upwards.

Direct line from Reagan dumping the fairness doctrine in the states, to shock jocks on TV, and Trump in the white house. An ongoing, inter-decadal radicalisation of white people like me - support your friendly local military industrial complex, folks! 

 

Sorry if that's a bit political for geekzone, and I don't mean to annoy anyone - totally agree it's great that he got dumped, and I hope it continues because (geek angle) tech is totally being misused to foment dissent amid fake wars, fake bubbles, fake news (looking at you Fox News, but also myriad other outlets) .. can anyone tell I'm already on my second coffee?

 

Anyhoo, stuff like this might be good fuel for an ethics-in-tech discussion. 
Any hip, happenin' NZ forums forums dealing with this sort of erm, stuff ?

After 14 years, anyone going on the show new exactly what they were getting in to.

 

It's an absolute rubbish show, and I question just how "real" it actually was - but I find it hard to blame the show for this death (without knowing the full details).

 

What I always disliked about the show (yes, I have watched a few episodes) was it's use of "lie detectors". Presumably they are polygraphs, which can't be considered particularly reliable yet the show made them out to be infallible.
