    Well just back from being in the audience at a Jeremy Kyle filming.
    I've seen the show on TV many times and I do find it funny & enjoy watching the show.
    Watching it from the audience is very different though. He's quite funny & in-between takes takes the **** out of the audience.
    I would recommend it to anyone as tickets are free !
    Our slot was a little late but over ran due to a segment with the morning filming. As one of the crew told me involved a supposing prostitute and the lack of editable footage they may NOT have due to the extreme language and actions the guests had.
    I was on the front row so should be on TV !

    Yes, used to be filmed at Granada Studios but is now filmed at Media City.
    Filming lasts normally around 2hrs but pending situations arising it can be longer.
    We filmed 1 and a half shows which isn't filmed in order.
    Had x1 lie detector & x1 DNA result (which the outcome would have meant that a married couple finding out if they where cousins or brother & sister !!!!!!!!!)
    He still looks very ill tho, but was in high spirits and even joked about it. He seems very natural when watching him live and not the "Mr. Look at me it's my show" which sometimes comes across on TV.

    It was a very long day though, when we 1st arrived (11:30am) no one was queuing so we popped into the lowery for something to eat.
    When we got back at 12:30 (didn't have to be there till 13:30 for a 14:30 recording) there was only two in the queue (1st come, 1st served)
    There are 2 queues one priority which is people who have been before but got turned away due to over subscribing.
    At one point we thought we where going to be turned away due to the amount of priority that turned up. But the studio holds 200 people so you would be very unlucky to get turned away in my opinion.
    Due the over run of the morning recording we had eventually been queuing up for over 4 hrs which was the only bad part of the day.

    I once went to a recording of the Naught Naughty Hipno Show wit Peter Powers at The BBC studios in Glasgow.
    While it was entertaining, it was a really long day. There was the warm up guy, then they filmed the start umpteen times, then they would retry different things, film the "back after the break" and "welcome back" bits (it was shown on CH4 but filmed at BBC).
    I'm a grumpy big bassa at the best of times and after a while it was hard for me to pretend to be excited and it showed when I saw myself on the telly. 😄
    But I now realise that when a show is filmed in front of a live studio audience that for that 1 hour of footage, the audience had to endure at least 4 hours of numb bums!
    It wasn't a terrible experience and the warm up guy was really funny. Might look into doing it again.

    It's kind of my "guilty pleasure". It's the kind of show if your feeling a bit crap about life it's almost guaranteed to make you feel your life isn't as bad as some other people's!

    I also think he's a genuine guy and, I suspect, they genuinely do some good for some of the people on there.

    I hate Jeremy Kyle and his show, he's a self righteous arsehole and the participants are clearly dragged from the dregs of society. The whole thing is little more than a zoo.

    Sadly I get to experience a lot of the guests in their own homes and it's no where near as entertaining when you have to go and speak to them and they expect you to lock tracy up because she called her a slag on facebook innit.

    I simply feel the whole show is a very sad reflection on society. The guests are no where near representative of the populace as a whole but they exist in every town and village in the land.

    Hah - that show is like a distillation of all that's negative about the people who appear on Jezza's show. I only watched one episode and almost kicked the screen in on my telly. Shocking!

    I think they call it "Poverty Porn". A phrase which was coined when "The Scheme" was first aired.

    The show makes me sick. Not the people on it, they are who they are, but the actual show itself. Basically, for entertainment and to make money, it takes advantage of vulnerable people (some clearly with mental health issues and borderline learning difficulties, despite what the producers claim) and parades them in some kind of nasty, spiteful, victorian freak show for other people to stare and laugh at. If anyone thinks it exists for any other reason, or that it does some good, they are deluding themselves.

    I actually find it quite disturbing that shows like this exist at all in 2013. The people they cynically exploit may be 'scumbags' and 'lowlife', and i have little sympathy for them, but they are easy targets and (flame suit on) I personally think that anyone with an average or greater IQ who watches this should have a long hard think about why they do. True it's a sad reflection on society, but it also says a lot about the people who produce and watch it.

    I will get of my high horse now. Sorry, that's just my opinion of course.

    Have to agree with that 100%, Jeremy Kyle is nothing more than a bully using the fact that he's obviously better educated than the people on his show to belittle them in front of the nation.

    The people on it obviously have issues but showing them up the way he does makes me really uncomfortable.

    I would rather have my eyes gouged out with sticks than sit through that. Each to their own I suppose but certainly not for me!

    Along with EastEnders on BBC, I find myself wanting to watch J Kyle when I can, and it's something to do on a weekday morn. But then, what else of any worth has ITV actually offered? All they show on their other channels is YBF, which is questionable in itself as people are hurt there frequently as well, and old TV shows (some American) from yesteryear, which are mostly OK except for the endless Sherlock/Poirot/Marple repeats.

    This is mostly all I watch from my Freesat setup - mostly BBC, because after EE they have Panorama, Holby City, Waterloo Road (an excellent replacement for Grange Hill, I might add) and Room 101 - ITV has Jezza Kyle and not much else, and the less said about the NCIS channel, Channel 5, the better. Channel 4? Gave up on them a long time ago, they have nothing to offer, even their coverage of the crappy later Simpsons is suspect.

    Kyle may be shouty, and his lie detector tests useless, but he makes for damn fine entertainment.

    The show seems to get more and more extreme. Mothers sleeping with their daughters boyfriends etc. A real race to the bottom. It is a vision of life with nothing better to do than **** around all day.

    It's no more entertaining than a public hanging and achieves about as much.

    Whip the audience up to a frenzy about how bad they are and light the touchpaper and watch them burn.

    It gets turned off as quick as the remote can be found.

    I feel jk is full of self importance and is critical and judgmental of others despite suffering faults himself. Ie former alcoholic etc....

    I also hate his manner "shut up" etc.... People go in there as I understand for both objective view, money and help yet his thinking always seem one sided.

    I love everything about this terrible spectacle.

    I love JKs self righteous hypocritical faux therapist vibe.

    I love seeing the freakshow parade of extras from "Deliverance".

    I laugh and laugh and laugh and am unable to turn this filthy entertainment off.

    Its the TV equivalent of a chicken and mushroom pot noodle ; its disgusting but man is it enjoyable when you are in the mood for it.

    My daughter watches this and it winds her up when I tell her that one day it will be revealed that they were all actors. One day.

    Don't know what class you think I am peering down from, but it can't just be a class thing. Not sure my clothes are any better as I haven't purchased any new clothes in years. Two teenage kids see to that.

    If pushed to categorise it, I'd say it was upbringing. Their parents don't seem any better.

    I don't like using generic terms either. Seems there is an awful lot just waiting to get on the show though. Whatever one calls them.

    Nb I wasn't taking offence :)
