Conclusion - there is some fakery here
24 June 2009 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

When "The Steve Wilkos Show" started, I approached it with an open mind, despite the fact it was a spin-off of "Jerry Springer", a show that I loathe because of its blatant fakeness. But after watching a number of episodes of this show, I have come to the conclusion that at least SOME of the stories on this show are fake. Here's some of the evidence:

(1) There was an episode where Steve confronted a mother hooked on crack, who was homeless. Yet when Steve confronted her, she was living in a hotel (and a pretty decent-looking hotel). If the mother had money to stay in a hotel, she would have the money to rent a decent apartment.

(2) There was another episode where Steve confronted another crack mother, who had her own home, the inside of which looked pretty decent despite her life completely revolving around crack. Not only that, when the filming moved to the bathroom, it kept editing from two camera angles. Each angle should have shown the other cameraman shooting the action from the other end of the room, but they weren't visible! Obviously, the scene was shot more than once and the footage edited together.

(3) There have been several times when a guest has left the stage and gone backstage... and a camera (or more than one camera) is ready backstage to film him or her! At least on "Maury", the cameramen are shown to have to follow the guests backstage.

While "The Steve Wilkos Show" is nowhere as annoying as "Jerry Springer", I still feel somewhat insulted by the fakery, even though the show tries to push positive values and good behavior. Steve, if you're reading this, stop the fakery and show REAL guests with REAL problems. I am sure that with a little work, you could find enough such guests to showcase.
