Jerry Springer was the host of The Jerry Springer Show. In Treehouse of Horror IX, when the Simpsons, Kang and Kodos come on his show and try to settle Maggie's baby daddy drama. In the episode, every aspect of his show is parodied, right down to the unsupportive audience and the random bleeps placed in at certain points. He also cut the episode quite short after Kang killed off the entire audience with a disintegration ray, and ended up killed himself by a combination of Maggie biting him in the arm and being throttled by Kang and Homer.
