Jerry Springer added, "I couldn't be happier. I love the people with whom I work, the show is a lot of fun to do and thankfully viewers continue to enjoy it."

Tribune's Vice President of Programming and Development Marc Schacher stated, "We're delighted to extend our successful relationship with Jerry Springer and NBC Universal."

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to hit 20 years with Jerry, Tribune and Sinclair," says Executive Producer Richard Dominick. "We have a wonderful host, a great director, a brilliant producing staff and Rachelle Consiglio as our supervising producer. With all this, we could easily do another 20 years."

Springer, who is currently hosting NBC's top-rated summer series "America's Got Talent" and coming off an exciting run on "Dancing with the Stars," is entering his 17th season at the helm of "The Jerry Springer Show."
