(Newser) – Today's television news: Jerry Springer heads to another trainwreck-of-a-show, while Kelly Osbourne lands a gig trying to help trainwrecks-in-the-making. Springer—who calls himself “the crazy old uncle” that people tell secrets to—will host a dating show where contestants reveal their biggest faults then vie for a date, the AP reports. The appropriately named Baggage debuts on the Game Show Network April 19; planned suitors include a shoplifter and a control freak.

Meanwhile, Kelly Osbourne will be a contributor on Dr. Phil starting today. The doc calls her “an excellent addition” since “she has dealt with drug addiction as well as addictions within her family. She’s also fought the battle with obesity.” Osbourne tells Entertainment Tonight she’s “excited” about her new job. “I really hope I can use my life experiences to do some good.”
