    I’m sp glad this program has been cancelled, I always hated it and the way Kyle manipulated people on it for entertainment. I’m just really sorry someone had to die first.

      It is sad that someone had to die first, I can’t even begin to imagine what humiliation he felt, and he died not knowing that the program would not be aired, what a shame. I did watch it for quite a while, but I noticed that as time went on the guests and audience were more and more humiliated and JK was way too big for his boots. He had no right to talk to people the way he did just for entertainment. I hate to think of all the people he has damaged over the years. Way more than those he’s helped, that’s for sure.

    It is horrid and humiliating show that prey on the vunerable for entertainment. I am glad it has been axed. Fab tips X #ablogginggoodtime

    I stopped watching years ago, for the same reason as you. I just feel totally heartbroken for his family, what ever type of guy he was, he was still human.

    I’ve never heard of this guy, but we have plenty of trash like that on the TV here in the States as well. I think the reason is just as you said – people feel a bit better about themselves looking at the wreckage of other people’s lives. I think there is a also a “bully by proxy” aspect to it where some get enjoyment out of watching others get pickled on. Garbage, regardless #bloggingggoddtime

    I’m glad the show has been axed. It always seemed to be such a harsh way to try and deal with problems even if there was support available afterwards and how it could have ever made anything better as a result was beyond me. It is so sad that it takes someone’s death to stop things like this happening. I think we could all do with being a little kinder, especially when it comes to mental health. I love your final quote – it’s such an important thing to remember. You never know what is beneath the surface and what other people are living with. #ablogginggoodtime

    I agree with you about this crap. I have not heard of this guy but we have similar shows like that here in the states and it’s appalling. They still air Jerry Springer I think. I am not too sure as I don’t watch the show but watching other people get picked on and fights starting just to get higher ratings, I don’t call that entertainment for one. For two, it’s not in the best interest of the people involved and it certainly doesn’t help others with their mental health. It’s sad that it ended because someone died though. It shouldn’t have had to come to that. #abitofeverything
