Springer's 'Got Talent'
If you liked NBC's freakshow version of "American Idol" called "America's Got Talent," then you're going to love it this season. Trashy talk show icon Jerry Springer will replace Regis Philben as the ringmaster of this talent circus.
The network released the news on Monday in a press release saying...
“To say the least, he is known for presiding over an unpredictable show where the unexpected is the typical order of each day.”
Springer, of course, hosted his namesake talk show, “The Jerry Springer Show” for 16 years and most recently appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" on ABC.
Regis Philbin hosted the talent show during its first season. The New York-based star of “Live with Regis and Kelly” decided not to return to “America’s Got Talent” because of the “heavy travel schedule” involved with the show’s tapings in Los Angeles.
This is going to be good! Wonder who they'll replace Brandy with if she goes to jail?
