by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 28th 2011 3:30PM
Judge Judy Sheinlin has been one of the highest-rated TV judges to ever sit behind the bench. She rules with an iron fist and revels in teaching lessons and shouting down unprepared witnesses. But on 'Live With Regis & Kelly,' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) Judge Judy showed her humble side, and admitted that while some may see her as an infallible matron of TV justice, she's made her fair share of courtroom mistakes.

"I know I have made mistakes over the years," she said. "Sometimes I've tried to take the information and came up with the wrong answer ... but I never came up with the wrong answer for lack of trying," Judge Judy said.

Judge Judy Sheindlin on 'Today'When 'Judge Judy' first aired in 1996, Bill Clinton was still president and no one knew who Monica Lewinsky was. Judy Sheindlin's show has lasted a full decade longer than 'Lost,' seven more years than 'Seinfeld' and the original 'The Twilight Zone,' and five more than 'Married With Children.' Wednesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) Judge Judy spoke with Matt Lauer about her approach to TV justice.

"I can make a little story in that nine or ten minutes that people can follow," Sheindlin said of the show. "They understand right, they understand wrong, they understand good guy, they understand bad guy." Some people, though, do not understand how to dress for court, which is what makes Sheindlin angrier than anything.

Chelsea Handler on 'Judge Judy' on 'Chelsea Lately'Chelsea Handler used a New York Times article about Judge Judy Sheindlin's astronomical salary as a jumping off point for some laughs on 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!). According to the report, Judge Judy makes $45 million a year, a bafflingly gigantic figure to Handler and her roundtable of comedians Bobby Lee, Arden Myrin, and Chris Franjola.

Handler observed that Sheindlin's salary, "is more than Jay Leno and David Letterman make combined, which is hard to believe. But she only works five days a month, so she makes 865,000 dollars a day."

Judge Judy and Judge Belvin Perry
The ink is barely dry on the jury's verdict, but already speculation's growing as to what happens next for the main players in the Casey Anthony trial. Many pundits agree that Judge Belvin Perry may have a second career waiting for him as a television judge. Could he be the next Judge Judy?

Fox news commentator Joey Jackson said, "I can certainly see him becoming the next big TV judge."

After months of court proceedings, on Tuesday, Perry confirmed the jury's verdict that Anthony was not guilty of first degree murder -- a verdict that visibly outraged the celebrity Twitter community. But Perry's shocking ruling, although an unpopular one, may only further catapult him into the celebrity judge world. Guilty or not guilty, Perry stuck to his guns throughout the trial, keeping attorneys in line and holding them accountable, dealing with even the craziest aspects of the case with an even temperament and being patient, yet rigid, in moving the case forward.

Judge Judy is not impressed by youWhat is a scratch and a scare from a dog worth in a court of law? That's what had to be decided Friday on 'Judge Judy' (weekdays, syndicated) when a man sued his neighbor whose dog got loose and scratched his daughter. The Plaintiff was seeking $5,000, and originally claimed the dog had bitten his daughter, but Judge Judy wasn't having it.

"Different story," said Judge Judy. "He scratched her and frightened her, and my problem with you," she added, "is, where you think this is worth $5,000. It's worth something."

In the end, Judge Judy said it was worth $250, which, not unexpectedly, did not make the plaintiff very happy.

Judge Judy Dismisses Case of Father Suing Daughter (VIDEO)

'Judge Judy'Disputes among family members aren't uncommon on 'Judge Judy' (weekdays, syndicated). On today's show, a father sued his daughter for defaulting on a car loan that was taken out in his name. The father said it was a tough decision to sue his daughter, and Judge Judy made it even tougher by quickly dismissing his case for not having pursued it early enough.

Judge Judy told the man he should have sued his daughter immediately when she stopped making payments and sold the car, despite any promises of payment. "Here's my promise, the case is over," said Judge Judy as she gathered her papers and left the courtroom.

The father seemed a bit stunned, while the daughter believed it was the right decision. He said his daughter needs to grow up, and she agreed and said she'd try harder, although they said so in separate interviews and not to each other.

Judge Judy Breaks Down Plaintiff in Case of Broken Treadmill (VIDEO)

'Judge Judy' doesn't want to hear itIf you want to win your case on 'Judge Judy' (weekdays, syndicated), make sure you get your evidence together in a timely fashion. A woman learned that the hard way on today's episode when she was sued for not paying for a treadmill she bought from a co-worker. The woman claimed the treadmill wasn't working when she got it in September. Trouble is, she didn't have anyone look at it until April.

The woman said she didn't use it until November. That did not cut it with Judge Judy. "I don't care," she said. "You had it. If you said to me, 'As soon as she gave it to me, it went out,' maybe we would talk. But you didn't have somebody look at it until last week. That is not reasonable evidence that when she sold it to you, she sold to you a non-functioning machine."

Judge Judy Rules in Case of Stolen Jewelry (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted May 31st 2011 6:00PM
Judge judyJudge Judy Sheindlin is not a trusting sort. She's also somewhat gruff, which is a great trait for a TV judge. So when a defendant on 'Judge Judy' (weekdays, syndicated) said that she didn't owe the plaintiff anything because the jewelry she had been given to sell had been stolen from her car, Judge Judy didn't buy it.

Linda, the plaintiff, gave Cynthia, the defendant, some jewelry to sell on consignment. Though she had a woman with who she claimed was acting as security, the jewelry was stolen from Cynthia's car at a gas station. Judge Judy motioned to a woman sitting next to Cynthia and asked if that were her security. Cynthia said yes. "Is she licensed to carry a firearm?" Judge Judy asked. The answer was no. "Then she's your buddy," said the Judge.

To top it off, one of the plaintiff's pieces had already been sold. Needless to say, the ruling went for the plaintiff. "If you would steal $500, you would scam out of $5,000," said the Judge, addressing Cynthia. Also, it may be time for her to acquire a new security guard/buddy.

If You Like (Show X), You Should Try Watching (Show Y)

America's Test KitchenThere are so many channels and so many shows now that a regular television guide can be more confusing than helpful. Sometimes you just want to watch shows that are similar to ones you already watch.

Here are six TV shows and related recommendations you may enjoy. Now, doing something like this isn't automatic -- for example, just because you like a sitcom like 'According To Jim' doesn't mean you're going to like a comedy like '30 Rock' -- but these shows have a lot more in common than genre.

If you like the first show, you'll probably like the second.

Judge Judy Gets an Unprecedented Case (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Sep 28th 2010 9:30AM
Judge Judy Gets a Unique CaseJudge Judy Sheindlin is elated. Her courtroom series ('Judge Judy,' weekdays, syndicated) has been on the air for 15 years and the small-claims cases can get a little repetitive. Don't misunderstand: "There's something different about every case," she clarifies. But she figured, "after 30 plus years in the business I had heard everything."

Not so. A Mr. David Nolan is suing his ex-business partner Mr. Charles Thompson -- over a house tour. Apparently Thompson reneged on a contract allowing his Victorian home to be included on the tour.

Judge Judy continued, "I am so pleased -- even at my advanced age -- to see that there is always something new under the sun. So I thank you, Mr. Nolan. Because of you I'm going to work forever, because there's always that chance that something new will come again."

He thanked her for the, er, ...compliment?

Why 'Judge Judy' Rules Daytime Television

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 16th 2010 11:00AM
Judge JudyWho's the queen of daytime television? It's not 'All My Children's' Susan Lucci or Oprah Winfrey or any of the ladies on 'The View.' Nope, the woman who rules daytime wears a long black robe and her name is Judy. That's right, 'Judge Judy,' who has been on the air for 15 years, is now the daytime diva.

In the recent May sweeps period, 'Judge Judy,' the syndicated courtroom reality show presided over by former jurist Judith Sheindlin, was the most-watched daytime show of all with nearly 6.4 million total viewers per episode. That's an increase of over 10 percent from a year ago and good enough to topple 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' from the top slot -- even in its final go-round!
