Jerry Springer is expanding his empire of cheese to GSN.
The network Tuesday confirmed what readers of authoritative gameshow site Buzzer Blog already knew: Springer will host GSN’s new relationship series "Baggage." The confusing setup for the show has contestants exposing their flaws to potential mates — but not really, because at the end of the show, nobody ends up going on a date.
It just sounds as if people go on TV to reveal their worst secrets, but with no real stakes attached. At least on Springer’s daytime show, there’s a chance of getting knocked to the floor by a chair.
Springer is the second daytime talk veteran to get a show on GSN this year. Earlier, the network signed Carnie Wilson for a reality show that ultimately generated very little buzz.
"Baggage" premieres in late April.
