Divorce Court

Polygraph Expert Explains Why You Shouldn't Lie on TV (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Jul 20th 2011 4:45PM
Chances are, if you've seen a TV lie detector test quickly escalate into an all-out melee, John Grogan provided the science that caused the spark. Grogan is a polygraph examiner who's become a regular on the TV circuit, lending his lie-detecting expertise to 'Survivor,' 'Nancy Grace,' 'Divorce Court,' 'Tool Academy,' 'Flavor of Love,' and a bevy of other shows.

In this video from the AOL You've Got series, he talks about just how accurate the lie detector test results you see on TV are, and what he's come to expect right after he delivers his results.

"Usually when we do relationship testing we'll ask the accuser to leave the room," he says. "You'll have somebody see their spouse either confess to something or fail badly on a question, and they'll come and slap or punch that person."

Clearly this is a man with much wisdom to dispense. Check out the video after the jump.

Gary Coleman on 'Divorce Court': His Last Big TV Role

by Scott Harris, posted May 28th 2010 5:15PM
As the country deals with the loss of one-time child star Gary Coleman, who died today at age 42 after suffering a brain hemorrhage, the last impression for many television viewers may not have been his long stint on 'Dff'rent Strokes' in the 1980's but his much more recent and highly publicized guest appearance on a very different type of show: 'Divorce Court.'

Coleman's 2008 appearance on the show came as a surprise to many for the simple reason that most people didn't realize he had gotten married. But he had, to Shannon Price, an actress 17 years his junior whom he met on the set of the 2006 indie comedy 'Church Ball' and whom he married in August of 2007.

Even more surprising, though, is the fact that he and his new wife appeared on 'Divorce Court' not in an effort to end their marriage but in the hopes of fixing it.

'Divorce Court' Couple Fight Over Husband's Inventions (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 4th 2010 8:30PM
We know it's tough being an inventor, coming up with ideas that other people may scoff at, but here's an inventor whose ideas are, well ...

On Thursday's 'Divorce Court' (weekdays, syndicated), a married couple scream at each other about the husband's invention ideas. He claims that she got in the way of his idea for a "Fish 'n' Flush" toilet tank that would actually be an aquarium ("The thing about an aquarium is that you always have to change the water and every time you flush this, you change the water"). The wife thinks it's a dumb idea. But Judge Lynn Toler is intrigued. "Do you have any other ideas?" she asks. His next invention: a "Pump 'n' Poop." Don't ask.

Reality Show casting calls

casting callsA day hasn't gone by where we haven't received some sort of tip or email asking us, the TV Squad, how to get on [insert reality show here]. Unfortunately no, Simon Cowell does not work for us, and Donald Trump isn't my BFF, so we really can't help all that much.

The folks at RealityWanted.com often send us a list of new and existing reality shows that are looking for new, er, talent, and they've given us permission to make mention of them here. We'll try to make this a regular feature as often as we get a new list.

This time we have Split Ends, Divorce Court and other new shows.

CBS gives thumbs up for more reality shows

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 21st 2008 11:37AM
JamieKennedyOnce upon a time, in the 1960's, the TV landscape was rife with westerns. In the 1970s, it was detective shows. Nowadays, the same can be said for reality shows, and it seems there's no end in sight to the genre. Today, CBS reported two new reality programs in development. Splitsville, which was previously announced, is now going into production. The marital-based series, which comic Jamie Kennedy is executive producing, is not about happy unions. It sounds more like Divorce Court meets Let's Make A Deal, with divorcing husbands and wives battling over their belongings in a series of competitive challenges. Hmm...can't wait to root for those people!

Judging nine TV judges

by Jackie Schnoop, posted Jan 31st 2008 11:20AM
Who judges the TV judges? I do.Not to worry -- this isn't about Simon, Randy, or Paula. I'm not talking American Idol here. Nah, I'm talking real people, real cases, true litigants ... and so much more! You see, I'm generally off from my day job one weekday a week. Of course I have to watch television. It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it, right?

I just never got into soap operas. Well, there was that period decades ago when I spent the summer home with a broken foot before the advent of the internet. But I digress. What I watch these days during the daytime hours tend to be the judge shows. Well, to digress a moment again -- WGN airs Homicide: Life on the Street at noon here. I can't miss that, of course. But then it's justice served. Who judges the judges? I do, naturally!

Divorce Court gets a new judge

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 28th 2006 2:02PM
divorceHokey smokes, Divorce Court has been on since 1957? I had absolutely no idea, though I guess that does make since as this was when divorce rates were beginning to escalate. Actually, the show hasn't been on continuously, it's been gone and back several times over the last half century and been through several changes. It also looks like it's about to go through another change, this time on the bench. The opinionated and sassy Judge Mablean Ephriam will be stepping down and replaced with Lynn Toler, an ex-judge from Ohio. Toler was also on another syndicated court show called Power of Attorney, which, like Divorce Court, I never watched either. Nevertheless, the show's longevity proves there's an audience, and I think we should all do our part to keep the divorce rate high so this show can flourish. I plan to start seducing lonely housewives right after lunch. I figure it's the least I can do.
