Springer Getting Make-Over

The Jerry Springer Show will be sporting a new look when it starts its 10th season on Monday, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Robert Feder reported today (Friday).

Springer himself will be dressed more casually, his set has been completely made over, and much of the show will originate on location, showing the participants in their natural habitats. "Everybody says two things to us," executive producer Richard Dominick told Feder. "'Bring back the fights' and 'I'd love to see how these people live.'"

One thing that will not change, however, will be the "wackiness" of the guests. "If you're looking to save the whales, call Oprah. If you're sleeping with a whale, call us."
