This can not be happening, I must be dreaming!

While reading some press releases I came across one concerning Jerry Springer. The VH1 channel is going to make a series of half hour programs giving a behind the scenes view of how the Jerry Springer circus is put together.

VH1 are not actually referring to it as a reality TV series, which is just as well because I can not believe that very much of what involves The Jerry Springer Show has its roots in reality. This behind the scenes view of Jerry Springer and friends is being called a ‘Docu-soap’!

Now I am all for furthering the English language but ‘Docu-soap’? The mind boggles.

For those hardy souls that want more information on this ground breaking television event the press release can be found here.
