I vote the latter. An ignorant, simple minded goon that believes his talk show actually has a chance to survive. One viewer referred to this " Hour of Ignorance " as garbage. My opinion of Wilkos and his tactics is far below that.
Who is Wilkos to judge anybody. To assume one's guilt. To disrespect, humiliate and embarrass the people that come on this show ? This treatment is only for women and white men of smaller stature. Larger , black male guests are treated different and from a distance. Why's that ? Because he doesn't want to have the taste slapped from his mouth on national TV. Wilkos constantly makes reference that he is an ex-marine and ex-cop. I'll be glad when he's an ex-talk show host wanna be. I'm sure his failure as a host will be for the same reason he's no longer an officer. Big in braun. Small in brain. What a joke !!!

Steve, I watch your show almost every day, and I have mixed feelings on some of the things you do, but one thing is bothering me the most at this very moment is that for the last week and a half EVERY DAY!!! It is a horrible thing and a major problem, but please get off the kick you are on about it. One more thing, the parents who tell you that they have been screwed over by social services, and you act like they are saints (DPP), but I am a mother who has been lied on, screwed over, and misinformed by the social service office all to cover up the mistakes they have made. So just because the reports they write say one thing, never means its true!!! I feel like 90% of them are there to get a check and thats all. I would love to tell you my story about my on going battle with the court system and see it you dont think the same thing all the lawyers I have had say, "Its a circus"!! Keep on keepin' on Steve.

Steve! I've watched your show a few times. I belive that people should pay for the things they do, but that comes with time. You are not needed for that. I believe that you should let the bad guy in the scenario talk. If what they say is BS everyone will see past it. In the case of the little boy who hadn't seen his mom for nine years; I don't believe you should have been so hard on her. You have no idea if she had really tried to send her son gifts, or see him, or anything. I've witnessed foster parents turn away gifts from parents and never even mention it to the child. Besides there's no way that kid would have known all of those things about his mom if someone hadn't been filling his head with all that stuff. Ecspecially if he hadn't seen her since he was 5.

I have a good idea for a show. I think i,m going to invite a bunch of trailer trash hillbillies who beat and molest their children on a show and yell at them for an hour. it's easy to look right when you yell at someone who is so obviously wrong. the world isn't as bad as it seems. sure it has gotten worse, but there are some good people left and we have to focus on that, no the trash. This fixation on the bad is only making things worse, makes us worry, makes the world look gray and hopeless. This fixation is only recent, and i,m sure will fade with time. Hang in there world citizens, a better day is coming.

Actually ppl have finally opened their eyes to the bad instead of pretending that it doesn't exist like society has for many years up until recent. I like Steve, I am sooooo effing sick of the PC buullsh!t and how everyone acts as if we should try to "fix" and "understand" these ppl (i.e., child molesters, abusers, dead beats etc..) I personally don't give a sh!t what goes on in these ppls heads, as a matter of fact I hope that THERE IS NO rehab to "fix" these freaks, that way we can lock them up and they will have to live in the hell of a fvcked up head their whole lives. But lately I get the feeling that Steve comes on the stage with too many preconceived ideas and occasionally is determined to yell at the person accused no matter what the real story turns out to be. I also have problem with these ppl NOT being charged or prosecuted, yeah yeah, I know, "its all circumstantial" yadda yadda, so you say, but this isn't law and order, in REAL life ppl are put away on circumstantial cases ALL THE TIME! So I think there needs to be some follow through, and any investigation that ensues should have the help of the Steve Wilkos show. Ps STEVE WHEN THAT JACK MCCLELLAN GUY (OR WHAT EVER HIS NAME IS) WAS ON YOUR SHOW AND REFUSED TO GIVE DNA YOU SHOULD HAVE HAD SOME PRODUCTION ASST. FOLLOW HIM AROUND SECRETLY TO THE BATHROOM LOL yeah it would have been admissible, but at least the cops would have known who to focus on, another ps, Jack didn't do it but he helped with the cleanup, That's just what my gut says.

Why doesn't Steve have a show that discusses the following:

1) Why hay pays his guests (i.e. killers, wife/child beaters, crack heads, etc) to appear on his show just to raise ratings?

2) Why he calls everyone a "fat ass" when he is fat himself?

3) What happens to the victims once they get home after Steve humiliates the wife/child beaters on his show?

4) Why he tries to act like a tough guy and tempts the guests to hit them while standing behind his gang of lawyers that will sue them soon after?

Steve is a stimple-minded moron that actually believes that yelling and screaming like the guests on his show somehow makes things better. Yelling and humiliation does not help these idiot guests... jail does.
thank god

thank GOD other people feel the way I do about this retarded wanna be host, Steve Wilkos. His methods are terrible and innefective. I doubt any of his guests are even real, he pays them to let him yell at them, make fun of them, and do nothing to actually help them. I actually hope it IS fake, because if the stories are real these people need to either be in jail or be out getting help from someone who knows what theyre talking about, and has an IQ higher then an infant. I really would love to know why he is no longer a cop, what happened in the Marines. More then likely he failed as horribly at those jobs as he fails as a current talk show host. I thought what he said whenever he talked on the Springer show was silly, but at least he wasnt in charge, at least that show is entertaining. I cannot wait for the day his show is cancelled, Im going to celebrate it.
He is really a wannabe

I agree....The guy is just an idiot,a tool, that the network uses to get people to watch this ignorant show.If you think that Jerry Springer is the producer, there you go, why are we having this conversation?!
The people are fake, the show is staged,Steve is an idiot.He calls it "moron free TV", i call it "get the moron off the TV"!!!

Well, I do have to say that, anyone who has appeared on the Steve Wilkos show and suffered through his abuse may certainly have good grounds for a law suit. In fact, I think that any lawyers reading these posts should be contacting some of these abused by Steve Wilkos.
Do you know what bothers me most? Well, I have to wonder, why would Chicago police officers moonlight as stage apes for this guy. Who is going to respect these cops on the street when they know that they are associated with the Steve Wilkos show?
Steve Wilkos appears to be uneducated, self absorbed, suffering from spontanious anger fits and seems to get turned on by his abuse of his guests. You only need to watch his expressions to see that he is aroused.
I would like to get the answers to a few questions. First, Was he or was he not in the marines? Why was he discharged? Was he or was he not in the police force? why was he discharged? As well, would he agree to a lie detector test relating to his past? Ask him questions like: do you know the results of the lie detector tests before approaching the guests.... you know that he does. No one in hs right mind would dare to say the things he does without covering his ass against law suits. Another question... do you pay the guests to be abused by yourself? or.... do you use your stage apes to intimidate your guests?

Anyhow.... I could go on for hours. The last thing I want to say is.... Steve..... Got the hell off of my TV!!

I don't like his show either but I think he'll last. Look at Springer. He's garbage but he has been around for years. Wilkos has the same double standard all talk shows have - if a husband cheats, he should be left, but if a wife cheats the husbAnd supposed to give the relationship a chance (for the sake of the family)

Amanda, you have no Idea what this guy is about. He get off humiliating people infront of thousands of people on national tv, he is nothing more then a bullie. How would you feel if you where the one caught in his sight, he would do EVERYTHING to bring you down, make you feel low. Make you feel you are worthless, the guy is a prick. His show should be cancled and him locked up. He is the worst kind of person to have on tv, he thinks that just because he has all these ratings he can continue to belittle people on NATIONAL TV and make them feel as if there life is worthless.

The guys a barbarian, an idiot.
