Dominick was named executive producer of Springer in the spring of 1994 and was instrumental in turning around Jerry Springer from a talk show near death to a ratings bonanza (at least during the late ’90’s) with its chair-throwing, fists-flying, no-holds approach to life’s problems.
Could this really be the last stand for Springer? With unimpressive ratings as of late and the program’s contract up with stations in 2010, the removal of Dominick -who was one of Springer’s closest and staunchest allies when activists were protesting the program’s content – says a lot.
Meanwhile, the other talk show Dominick produced featuring the Morton Downey Jr. clone was somehow green-lighted for a second season despite being the lowest-rated talk show entry last season. This show could be a goner after this upcoming season if ratings don’t improve.
