About the Show



SHOW DESCRIPTION

 

JUDGE JUDY has been the #1 show in first-run syndication for the last 10 seasons and the #1 program in daytime since the 1998-99 season. The Emmy® Award-winning courtroom series returned for its 24th season on Monday, September 9, 2019.

 

Presided over by outspoken former Family Court Judge, Judge Judith Sheindlin, the series continues to serve as a benchmark for the courtroom genre. With her no-nonsense, hard-hitting decisive approach to justice, Judge Sheindlin has established herself as a pop-culture icon for generations of viewers.

 

The series focuses on small claims disputes from across the nation, which often center on family and/or interpersonal relationship issues.

 

Randy Douthit, the series’ executive producer and director states, “Her message is simple: Take responsibility for your lives.” He continues, “She cuts to the chase and offers a quick and fair resolution that resonates with the viewers.”

 

When Judge Sheindlin was a Family Court Judge in New York, she earned a reputation as an extremely effective judge that garnered national attention and was the subject of a Los Angeles Times article in February 1993. That story caught the attention of “60 Minutes,” which led to a segment on the iconic newsmagazine.


After her appearance, she was approached about the possibility of presiding over cases on a television program. On Sept. 16, 1996, JUDGE JUDY premiered in national syndication.

 

JUDGE JUDY is a Big Ticket Television production and is distributed by CBS Television Distribution. Big Ticket is a CBS Company. Randy Douthit is executive producer and director. Amy Freisleben is co-executive producer. CBS Television Distribution is a unit of CBS Corp.
