This cool vintage tee reps the iconic tabloid talk show, The Jerry Springer Show, and it shows Springer standing in between two of the show's security guards with the slogan "To Protect and Separate". The Jerry Springer Show was known for often needing security to subdue many of its outlandish guests. The two bodyguards featured on the shirt are Steve Wilkos and Todd Schultz, who became pop culture figures in their own right thanks to the show. This was especially true for Wilkos, who would even sometimes host the show in Springer's absence and was eventually given his own spin-off talk show The Steve Wilkos Show in 2007.
The Jerry Springer Show was a pop culture phenomenon, particularly during the 90s and early 2000s. This was thanks to the show shifting its focus in the mid-90s to include controversial topics like adultery and incest, excessive profanity and nudity, as well as physical fights. The show itself became a topic of controversy as some people thought of it as trash TV that was corrupting America. Regardless it cemented itself as a pillar of pop culture during the time, with various references and parodies in movies like Austin Powers and even a song dedicated to the show written by Weird Al.
