Judge Judy has signed a new multi-year deal to continue with her daytime series through 2017.
Judge Judy, now in its 17th season, averages more than 9 million daily viewers, more than any other show in daytime – the show has spent 860 consecutive weeks as the top-rated, half-hour syndicated court show on TV.
“Twenty-one is a terrific number. It’s when you officially become an adult, it’s a winning hand in blackjack and it’s the number of seasons we will have hit in 2017. I am so fortunate to have a job that I still love, working with a staff I respect and with a company who is at the top of their game,” said Judge Judy.
Judge Judy who is paid $45 million, is the executive produced and directed by Randy Douthit. Financial terms of the new deal were not revealed.
