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.

Jerry never had that happen. No set decorating for Jerry. He knows they can be used as weapons

I think Steve should wear that bowl over his head for protection. Is his show called Jerry 2.0?

Nothing to see her. Just drumming up interest for another fixed reality show.

He had to learn what Gerald learned back in the 90s.

You asked for it, you got it Toya-- oh, wait, this is a sleazy talk show that encourages violence. What did you expect? When you play with fire, you're gonna get burnt one day. No sympathy here. And stop promoting this garbage.
