Jerry Springer has shuttered production on his iconic television series, The Jerry Springer Show, after 4,000 episodes and 27 seasons.
The AP reported the news that NBC Universal is not currently making any new episodes of the series, which debuted in 1991, but in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Springer set the record straight.

The one aspect of the show that the 74-year-old finds difficult to continue with is the pace — “Other people have come and talked about possible television projects, but I don’t know that I can maintain this schedule that… has been insane for all these years.”
