Jenny Jones Background
The Jenny Jones TV show had some staying power and ran for 12 seasons from 1991 to 2003. The public reception of the cancellation of the show was mixed, but the show had been mired by the 1995 show-related murder of Scott Amedure by an acquaintance, Jonathan Schmitz.
Kenny Jones Show Related Murder of Scott Amedure
Schmitz had been surprised, shocked and embarrassed by Amedure's gay proposal on Jones's show. Three days after the show's taping, Schmitz killed Amedure. Amedure's family sued the producers of The Jenny Jones Show and won the initial ruling. The show was ordered to pay $25 million, but the verdict was later overturned by the Michigan appellate court.
Jenny Jones's Legacy Doomed by the Trial
Jenny Jones walked away without direct blame, but her TV legacy was doomed, The trial made Jones appear full of denial and selfishness that resulted in a show related murder. The case shone a light on just how TV producers and presenters care very little about their guests and more about their own TV ratings.
They knew that Schmitz was not gay and even if he was, would probably not be too happy about being outed on live national TV. Schmitz was expecting to meet a girl on the show who had a secret crush on him, although the producers only inferred this to him.
Jenny Jones Avoids Prosecution
Jenny Jones and the producers had many opportunities to tell Shmitz it was a man who had a crush on him and they failed to do so. This gay crush reveal episode was a ham-handed attempt to keep up with the outrageous shenanigans of the Jerry Springer show that was killing them in the TV ratings at the time.
