These two shows have been called “trash tv” but what is the point of these shows? Is it humor? No, the purpose of these shows is to help. Every episode of Maury either gives a DNA result or helps someone get out of a tough situation. Steve Wilkos is the exact same. The video posted above shows the two working together to help the young girls who have lost their way, through sex and violence. They work together to try to help those girls have a better life, as well as helping their families get their daughters back. These two shows may seem like ‘trash tv’ at first glance, but when you don’t have the money for a DNA test, or your daughter is 15 and a prostitute, sometimes the humiliation of national tv is your only choice.
