Richard Dominick was ousted as executive producer of The Jerry Springer Show and The Steve Wilkos Show after he failed to tone down violence on the two shows, as NBC Universal executives had demanded, the Chicago Sun-Times reported today (Thursday). According to the newspaper's TV columnist, Robert Feder, who cited "the story making the rounds," Dominick was fired by his bosses after engaging in a "physical confrontation" with a guest in which he applied a choke hold. Dominick declined to comment on the report.
