The Useless Critic hosts a list of the Top 5 episodes of "The Jerry Springer Show." According to them, the best episode is titled "I'm Happy I Cut off my Legs," the story of a transvestite who cut her own legs off with a power saw.

Jerry Springer has been subject to much controversy in the past from major figures in television and religious leaders, who suggest the show should be removed as it is made in bad taste. This was mostly because of the show's nature of having guests fight almost every episode, of which some question the authenticity. As of 2015, Springer is still airing with a running total of 23 seasons.
