English term or phrase:freakshow
I was reading about sideshow live freakshows. It really just comes from whatever I happen to be reading at the time. The devil baby was one of the exhibits and it struck me that the current chat shows on television, like the Jerry Springer show, are a TV equivalent of the same kind of thing.
Explanation: "freak" olağandışı, normal olmayan, uçuk karşılığı kullanıldığından bu gibi olayların yer aldığı "show" da garip gösteri olarak tercüme edilebilir. Garip kelimesinde "freak" teriminin içerdiği insanı bir şekilde rahatsız eden unsur da bulunmaktadır.
