Judge Judy sentenced: two more years on TV

After renewing her deal with CBS Television Stations, Judge Judy Sheindlin — judge-judy.jpgmom of newly elected Putnam DA Adam Levy, and whose hubby practices law in Putnam — is now set to be on the air with “Judge Judy” until 2012. Yes, by the time the contract runs out, she’ll be pushing 70.

In a quote on The Hollywood Reporter, CTD president and COO John Nogawski said, “Judge Judy is the unsung hero of syndication, consistently delivering fantastic ratings to our station partners, and were really proud its the only syndicated show growing year to year.”

Me, I always thought the biggest unsung hero was “The Lost World” with Jennifer O’Dell. To each his own.

Thanks to F.O.S. Amy Vernon for the tip.
