The Steve Wilkos TV Show- Show Summary

Born and bred in Chicago, Steve Wilkos is a former Marine who went on to become a police officer in his hometown. When the Chicago-based Jerry Springer Show began getting increasingly violent (notably when the Ku Klux Klan appeared on the program), the show decided to hire off-duty cops for security, and Wilkos was among those hired. Steve Wilkos eventually became director of security on the Jerry Springer Show, and even became so popular with Springer audiences that he started filling in as host when Jerry was away, doing his own special "Steve to the Rescue" shows.

In 2007, Steve Wilkos finally got his own syndicated daytime talk show. The Steve Wilkos Show is in the mode of The Jerry Springer Show, often featuring guests in dysfunctional relationships, who Wilkos tries to offer helpful advice to. He also deals with violence-oriented topics, such as gangs, guns, and domestic abuse. At six foot three inches and two hundred and eighty pounds, Wilkos is a formidable figure on stage at the show and although he manages the show well, things often get out of control as they don't let their guests sit down. Steve has been head-butted, hit in the head by a metal bowl and attacked on stage all during the taping of the show.

Should you see the Steve Wilkos TV Show Being Taped?

Steve Wilkos TV Show
  The Steve Wilkos show is much like the original Jerry Springer show, with much chair throwing, out-of-control teens, who is the baby daddy and all other forms of the low-road daytime TV format. Where Steve Wilkos differs from Jerry Springer is that when trouble was brewing on stage, Jerry got-the-hell out of there, but Steve Wilkos gets right-in-there, sorting out the trouble in a firm but gentle manner, until his patience gets tested and then he gets mean. You don't want to cross Steve Wilkos. He was Jerry's bouncer so he knows how to control out-of-control guests. He does not play around.

The show is a fun way to spend a morning and/or afternoon and has some high spots on the show, especially with the warm-up comedian before the show begins and after the show, where Steve will give autographs and take pictures with fans. The production and taping is a little drawn out, so may take a couple of hours to tape just one show, especially if stage guests are being difficult - either they won't come out on stage or are making other ridiculous demands. Lunch and snacks are included and the TV studio is located in Stamford, Connecticut, but is relatively easy to get to via free bus or via Metro North.

Although Steve Wilkos usually does a great job of handling his out-of-control guests, in a show in Feb 2013, Wilkos had a particularly bad group of guests on the stage for the show "My Daughter Tried To Poison Me". At a critical moment an argument erupted where mama-bear lost it and threw a metal bowl at Steve Wilkos's forehead.
