Judge Judy to Remain on CBS Through 2015

LOS ANGELES | May 2, 2011

Judge JudyAfter a long-running 15 seasons that last season ranked no. 1 in daytime television, CBS Television Distribution stated on Monday that Judy Sheindlin, 68 and known as “Judge Judy,” signed a new deal to stay with CBS through 2015. “I am thrilled with the opportunity to continue this exciting second career,” Sheindlin said in a statement.

Having been a former New York judge, Sheindlin presides over small-claims cases on her daytime program. “Judge Judy” had actually been renewed until 2013 before this new agreement was reached.

The deal comes as Oprah Winfrey whose cable channel went live in January prepares to end her talk show after 25 years, leaving Sheindlin and other daytime stars to compete for the position.

Judge Judy had contemplated ending her show in 2013, but the show remains a strong competitor. In the 2009-10 season, “Judge Judy” ranked No. 1 among daytime series and became the first program in a decade to outdraw “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

Sheindlin is “at the top of her game,” said John Nogawski, president of CBS Television Distribution, the show’s syndicator. She’s been the most-watched TV judge since her show’s 1996 debut.
