Since Oprah’s departure from TV, there’s a void in the daytime talk line-up and no shortage of shows rushing to mop up her audience. One contender is British talker Jeremy Kyle.

Kyle is already the U.K.’s top-rated talk show host. He’s blunt, courts controversy and doesn’t shy away from confrontation. Think of him as a cross between Simon Cowell and Jerry Springer who happens to closely resemble “What Not To Wear’s” Clinton Kelly.

And, luckily, he’s ready to take on — and do his best to resolve — America’s relationship woes.

“The Jeremy Kyle Show” debuts stateside on Sept 19. Check local listings.
