Awful. Just awful. Like human bear-baiting. Kyle himself is truly obnoxious, presiding over the people who are there because they have some fairly major personal problems, alternating between exposing his "guests" to his righteous indignation and occasionally extreme patronisation.
Shows of this genre like Jerry Springer have humour, or Trisha (the predecessor to Kyle)have a degree of compassion, but in the case of the Jeremy Kyle Show all of this is stripped away to allow the usually very dirty laundry of people who really need help with little benefit to anyone other than allowing the viewing public to feel superior.
