first there was people's court.then judge judy..judge brown..and at least 2 other female judge shows.now,judge alex,who looks amazingly like herman munster.they all seem to have an attitude that probably wouldn't fly in off tv court.i..really doubt you're allowed to yell "shut up" at the people before the bench like that. it seems whenever they have one show that works,they feel they have to absolutely flood the market with copycats,until people are truly sick of them.and they're probably not done yet. am i the only one sick of the gripy,"seems to be pissed they had to work today" judges on tv?

I used to love court shows, when I was off I'd always find time to watch a few of them. And I still do every once in a while. But it's like everything else. When the schedule gets flooded with them, eventually some of them are going to get cancelled. I like the ones with the "kinder gentler" judges myself.

yea,some of them are quite a bit more snarky than they need to be. but then,that's media.

Judge Judy in particular will just jump down somebody's throat and sometimes I can see why and other times I'm thinking "what was that all about, too harsh"...

I would say one, but definitely no more than 2. If there has to be 2, one could be like people's court, and the other for divorce. But really, we don't need a bunch of judge shows that all pertain to the same thing. It gets really old after a while. Happy mylotting!

no, most of the time i dont watch them. but once in a while i light on one while changing channels and get caught up in the craziness just for the laugh. what also bugs me is how tv when they get something people like they make 5 or 6 copy cat programs that dont always come out as good but the next thing you know, the original one you loved gets pushed out it seems im refering to like Law and order. i like the criminal intent and SVU but lately its like criminal intent is changing characters and is almost never a new one. then theres Monk. they are saying its his last season possibley pushed out by phyche and a few other new ones that arent bad but not nearly so good either.!!

psyche has it's moments,but it's not an "got to watch every week" type. too goofy. i do like burn notice tho.not quite a law show per se,but on the border of it.

It is normal daytime t.v. These shows have been on for ever. I guess it is the alternative to soap operas. I am not a big daytime t.v person myself, but every once in a while I find myself glued to see what is going to happen. LOL I fell the same way you do though no way would any judge let things be said in a real court room!

I never understood the need for all those different shows either. Judge Judy is one thing, because she's got a really interesting reputation, and her show is pretty unique, but I don't see the need for a lot of the others. I don't think people watch Judge Judy so much for the cases, but for her reactions, and chutzpah. The other shows just don't have what she does.
