Jeremy Kyle is always the highest rated show for ITV each morning, so whilst it’s an appalling program ITV would never previously have axed it. When asked about the show at the TV festival last year, I seem to recall Kevin Lygo was quite embarrassed about the fact it’s their best performing show in the morning. Given what’s happened, I think this will (quite rightly) be the end of the show.
I honestly doubt that this will be the end of the show. In addition to its own popularity, it must line up a lot of viewers for This Morning too.
Channel 5 would commission an axed Jeremy Kyle in a heartbeat. No matter what you think of the show (and I am not the biggest fan by any stretch), it is loved by millions and it can only be held accountable for the behaviour and actions of its participants away from the studio to a limited degree.
