I think they are kinda fake to be honest. Or they at least play the drama up to be worse than what it is. Honestly It can be entertaining but I still don't think it's as legit as they try to portray it as.
What do you think of shows like Dr Phil, Jerry Springer, Maury, etc?
What Girls Said 21
I have watched Maury for years since my toddler years and as much as I'm not a fan of Jerry because of the atrocious garbage nowadays, I watch it here and there just to hear the relationship issue stories. I don't watch Dr. Phil, but I have seen a few episodes that were very life changing. Jerry, however, is more staged just for the entertainment with true stories. You can pretty much see that. I watch Maury and Steve Wilkos more. But hey. With the way most people on here on GaG acts they need Steve and Maury and Phil.1
Dr. Phil needs to stop.
Jerry, go at it. I don't watch it at all, but... yea. No comment really. It doesn't try to be anything it's not.
Maury, he seems like a really nice gentle relaxed guy, have NO idea how he got into this business haha. His show can stay too, for the laughs.1
Dr Phil talks about real issues and concerns. I didn't even Jerry Springer was still a show drama filled on that one for sure they seem to promote fighting bringing cheating people on all the time.. Maury lol having to come on the show 17 times to find out who the father of your child is... well A get some common sense there is only a certain window in the month that's possible. B quit sleeping around and you wouldn't be having that problem, C I think some people that go on that show I think they just do it to get attention.1

I think Maury and Jerry are for the most part staged, Dr Phil is more real but of course may be spiced up for drama.
I love watching them lol but then it turns into the same thing over and over1
they are all scripted to provide maximum drama and titillation with very little emphasis on actually helping anyone.1
Yeah the Jerry Springer show is so fake. They are all like ham actors lol I cringe watching it1
Jerry Springer may be fake, but I don't think the others are. And even if they were, they're still entertaining.1
It's for entertainment purposes. Although the Dr. Phil show is more realistic than the others listed. I, unfortunately, know someone who went on the Dr. Phil show.1
I love Maury. I know they're heightened for drama, but I still love it. Jerry Springer is an awful show. I've always hated it.1
I avoid 'em. Dr Phil could catch me outside, how bout dat2
Dr. Phil and Maury are okay shows.1
They seem staged but hey it's funny1
Dr. Phil is okay. Jerry Springer is too violent for my taste. Maury? Never seen that one.1
they seem scripted to me too1
Not really fake but it seems wery good organised.1
I hate those shows. They are so trashy & repetitive. Dr. Phil is okay. I use to watch it sometimes but I haven't seen it in years.0
I think they are heavily scripted & a waste of time.1
looooooove those shows hahaha0
They're all stupid shows.0
