Judge Judy Says CBS Took a ‘Gamble’ By ‘Disrespecting’ Her Show

Judge Judy Sheindlin said CBS made a mistake when they chose to syndicate Drew Barrymore’s new talk show over her new court show, and their very public break-up is going to be as messy as “a Bill and Melinda Gates divorce.”

The $440 million dollar star, whose long-running courtroom series “Judge Judy” has been the number one syndicated show for its entire twenty-five year television run, said that CBS executives made a huge mistake when they bounced her latest series “Hot Bench” to a secondary network.

“You disrespected my creation, you were wrong,” Sheindlin said about CBS in an interview. “Not only in disrespecting my creation but your gamble in what you put in its place.”

“Hot Bench”, which features a three-judge panel that hears cases and delivers Judy-like witty retorts, reached an average of nearly three million viewers during its last season, while “The Drew Barrymore Show” has yet to break a million.  

Though Sheindlin has been no less than judgemental about CBS, they have nothing but kind words to say about her. “We have had an incredibly successful relationship with Judy over the last 25 years,” CBS Media Ventures President Steve LoCascio commented. “It has been an honor representing her show, and just like there has never been another Oprah, there will never be another Judge Judy.”

But Sheindlin is over the network, remarking that she “had a nice marriage” to CBS, but their break-up is “going to be a Bill and Melinda Gates divorce.” She’s already moved on to her next suitor and they have deep pockets, her shows are set to begin streaming on Amazon’s platforms.

Yeah, Judy was the only show I watch on any of the Networks, full of Kooks and a Jungle of Multi racial forced interactions on us. Watch any commercial and it’s Black men with white wives that a need Toothpaste and laundry detergent, and deodorant? I guess as that is their target their target audience. They can’t come up with that knowledge/stuff on their own when they are multi racial?

Brando get rid of your emotions and respond from your logical because in no way do we want both destroying each other because the amount both pay in taxes is much needed to keep our country afloat financially

She is entitled to like the candidate of her choice (even though it was a TERRIBLE one!).

Judy didn’t vote for Trump she said no way he won, no way he has 82 million voters, the same is happening to Judy now, suddenly she thinks is not right, she claims she has 3 million followers and CBS says, Barrymore won, Barrymore is a Hollywood aristocrat, Judy is the peasant….why is she angry!!!

I always admire Judy’s curmudgeon attitude but show after show about rent and dogs can get a little tiresome.

I love the JJ Show and Hot Bench as well. I agree with JJ. I used to watch Hot Bench” almost daily as I did my morning kitchen chores.
I have NEVER watched that light-weight brain-dead alcoholic druggie Drew Barrymore once.

Former CBS President Fred Friendly once said, “Television is called a medium because it is neither rare or well done.” But Judge Judy is the exception to the rule. She has been both informative and entertaining for a quarter century, and I wish her even more success in the next 25 years. I appreciate her insightfulness and candor.
