Let’s be honest: most judges who make court decisions on television are basically doing it for the money. Court room television shows only cover people who have personal disputes, not criminal disputes, as a judge can’t decide such things without a jury. All of these court room decisions are made within the format of a 30 minute television show and all of the judges are paid like stars of a TV show, making these judges more wealthy then they would ever be, even if they were one of the top judges in the country. Check out these TV judges listed below, but don’t cower in fear if you see them in public. Grab an autograph instead.
Judge Judy has been on television the longest and may be one of the most successful TV judges out there. This is because she tells it like it is with the charm of a lovable grandma. She also has the paychecks to prove her success, since she has been in syndication for years.
Judge Joe Brown. Judge Joe Brown has an urban, street style to his way of speaking to people in his courtroom, making him very entertaining and keeping his show on the air with solid ratings. He loves to tell people to “be a man about it.”
