Judge Shows on Television

Introduction:Now that Talk Shows have just about waned (with Oprah going into a new forum this year) and the View being just a last one standing it seems that though Judge Shows have always been around, they're making a nice impact. Talk shows made a lot of money but tell me, were they factual? Did we really LEARN anything besides some Entertainers story, which was just another way to sell a book or announce a new movie? A lot of opinions and so called truths and counseling came from the host or their life coaches. Oprah gave a lot of credence to the Dr. Phils and Oz's. Poor Montel, while I loved him and believed in him, his life coach was Sylvia Brown the Psychic. Was he kidding me? And I didn't want to go there with Oprah but Dr. Phil? I could hammer my know-it-all opinion just like him (not really).I never took much away from a talk show unless it was an interesting topic I watched for entertainment. I will list in ascending order some of the nicest Judges on television..........

  • 01

    Judge Karen

    Judge Karen wears a magenta colored robe. When she was canceled in 2009, I read somewhere that her being African America with blond hair and heavy jewelry was a bit much. I say to each his own. I have seen these expressions of hair color and fashion throughout my life. Not that often but people have colored their hair throughout the ages, even in the Biblical days. I looked at her as highly individual but not that rare. She returned with new shows in 2010, hair a little modified and far less jewelry. She also has a dialect that could be considered slightly Southern, after all she is from Florida. She came up in poverty. This woman is so smart. I watch her as she she intakes all the information from the litigants and how smartly she rules. She is a pleasure for me to watch because she's so grounded.

    Judge Lynn Toler

    Divorce court is a Court Show dedicated completely to divorcing couples. When aired in the 60s or so, it is alleged that the litigants were actually paid actors depicting real situations. At any rate, the show has the actual couples (and have for years) and Lynn Toler presiding. What I like about this lady is that she has a dry sense of human, she's sensible and quite efficient in her verdicts. She really does tell it like it is.

  • 03

    Judge Alex Ferrer

    I love Judge Alex. He feels like a good, nice guy to me and the personal experiences he enters to get a case across shows much empathy most of the time. I am always in agreement with his rulings.

  • 04

    Judge Greg Mathis

    Judge Mathis is another very witty, comical and effective Judge. He and Doyle the Bailiff are quick with the math and he really does great when it's a wash, that is nobody's case is dismissed when it's a wash but rather, "hey, you get $950.00 and she gets $950.00." Which is a nice dismissal. I think I've watched him more than anyone else.

    Judge Janine Pirro

    I like this lady more than all of them. She has been a part of Domestic Violence Court before coming to television. This lady is a compassionate and highly intelligent Judge. She's exacting, honest and understanding. She's one of the best additions in the last couple of years.




Final Thoughts

I love Judge Judy, I just don't have a chance to watch her anymore. She has this little funny, tongue-in-cheek way of trying to be menacing and sinister to the litigants. I watched her before anyone. And I hated to say goodbye to Judge Maria Lopez, Judge Mablean, and Judge Christina but I can't have them all. I have LEARNED things through these shows.
