Steve Wilkos' Head

SLAMMED with Metal Bowl

In Talk Show Brawl

Steve Wilkos
was literally BOWLED OVER during a recent taping of his talk show -- after taking a metal bowl straight to the head when a fight broke out among his guests ... and TMZ has the footage.

Sources connected to the show tell us, the former "Jerry Springer" bodyguard was hit just above the eye and temporarily lost his vision -- but ultimately, there was no serious injury.

The fight erupted at a taping this week during a segment called "My daughter tried to poison me" ... shocker.

We're told the bowl -- a prop on the set -- actually has a dent where it hit him. The bowl has since been bolted down so as to prevent future bowl-related injuries.

When will people learn: bowls aren't the answer.

The phrase "Class will out" comes to mind.
Wilkos is not David Niven, Cary Grant, John F. Kennedy, the Prince of Wales...
trashy talk shows equals trashy behavior.

That's quite funny because he is such a "tough guy" yet he folded so quickly from a bowl...

He had better get that checked out - I think he should go to the eergency room in a few hours again - it could start bleeding internally and he could die 24 hours later. It happened to my friend and he died. Scary stuff.

Serves him right. This show incites violence - what goes around comes around (and bashes you on the head!)

Watched it twice and it looked like his hand took majority of the blow. He might need the ratings I'm guessing.

With Steve always yelling at everyone from his horse, it was about time someone knocked him off.

Too bad that bowl didn't enter his skull. His staff gives false information and their Polygrapher is a fraud and very unethical.
