CBS Announces One Hour 'Judge Judy' Primetime Special

CBS has announced a one-hour primetime special that will look at how Judge Judith Sheindlin transitioned from New York family court judge to 'Judge Judy'.

'Judge Judy Primetime', to be broadcast on broadcast Tuesday, May 20 at 8 PM, will include new cases and look at how Sheindlin's "no-nonsense, tough but fair approach to justice has established her as a pop culture icon for generations of viewers around the globe as the #1-rated daytime program in the US."

CBS says the program will also highlight "classic Judyisms, her hilarious one-liners that have become part of America's lexicon."

The network jails Judge Judy and "her unique ability to act as a true moral compass and her uncanny ability to ferret out the truth."

Sheindlin's syndicated program has been the No. 1 show in first-run syndication for the last three years and No. 1 in daytime for four consecutive seasons so it will be interesting to see the ratings the special receives.

Judge Judith Sheindlin is the highest paid TV star, earning $47 million per year for 'Judge Judy'. Since she only works 52 days a year, that translates to over $900,000 per workday.
