$45 Million A Year!!!

| Filed under: TV NewsSuper SeniorsOprah WinfreyBusiness Blitz



It's Judge Judy!

The daytime courtroom reality show has surpassed the reigning queen with an average 6.6 millions viewers a day. It's been the top-rated daytime show 24 out of the past 29 weeks, beating The Oprah Winfrey Show 13 out of the past 15.

And not only that, but Judge Judy Sheindlin is entering her 15th year in syndication with a $45-million-a-year contract. And that's for working only 52 days a year!! Damn, Judy!

She also has renewed her contract through 2013, making her Forbes' 72nd richest celebrity.

That's incredible for a woman in her late 60s!

    For as WOMAN in her late 60's???

    Although you're right. And you shouldn't be.

    wow! good job on hiring the new writer? this is a cogent post, with proper punctuation, spelling and grammar! this is certainly not perez nor his sister. thank you so much!

    Holy shit. I never would have thought that show could be such a cash cow!

  11. 11

    and what does that mean 'and for a woman in her 60's?' that a woman should not be making the money or an older person should not be making the money? What if it was another blogger and Judy was gay and they wrote 'and for a lesbian in her '60's?' or 'just an older lesbian?' YOU WOULD GO THROUGH THE ROOF!!!!! You, MARIO, are a prejudice person, and YOU DO NOT REALIZE IT. You rip ANYONE who makes a remark about gay people BUT, it is okay for you to make these remarks about older people and women. And they are disparaging.

    I am glad to see the fat racist sow Okra's rapid fall from her lofty tower. When she endorsed Messiah Dumbama her ratings started to tank. Everything Messiah Dumbama touches disintegrates!

    I fucking LOVE Judge Judy. I record her show on every channel it's on every day. Good for her!

    "That's incredible for a woman in her late 60's!"
    I would think that is incredible for a person of any age or gender. :)

    45 million dollars a year is more than just a little fucking ridiculous as a salary.

    People actually watch that show??? I find her to be nasty. It surprises me to no end that she'd get higher ratings than Oprah, let alone Rachel Ray!

    In that picture she looks ill. Maybe soon she will not be around to enjoy her millions and people will be free of her mean streak.

  21. 21

    I thought she was pushin eighty.

  22. 22

    Wish Judge Judy was our US Attorney General!

  23. 23

    I used to work with her husband. As rich as they are, he still grubbed freebies–at the taxpayers' expense– when he sat as a judge in the Bronx.
    Judy likes freebies, too: American Girl dolls, etc.
    This isn't jealousy, just an observation.

  24. 24

    Oprah is gonna invite her over for dinner and try and push her in the oven.

  25. 25

    $45 million a year is nothing when you consider Oprah makes $315 million a year. Judge Judy needs to work on her negotiating skills. She's being played for a fool.

  26. 26

    I ♥ Judge Judy~I give her kudos for having to endure some of planet earths stupidest people (e.g. last week fella is freaking out as he claimed gal took his medical marijuana at a party - PS he had more than enough to smoke the entire party up…hmm thought is there not a limit on how much "personal smoka" you can carry?) - she does know how the criminal mind works and she lets them hang with their words….way to go JJ!!

    I hope that she will let Larry King come on.

    fucking jew

    She is good. She can spot an idiot a mile away. If a witness doesn't show up, she asks for their phone number and calls them.

    Why does this post start off with "NOPE!" as if the title is a question? Seriously, you can SOOOO tell by reading this website, that whoever writes it (Perez, his sister, other writers) doesn't reread what they wrote! All the time I see things like this or like there will be a sentence, then a space down almost the exact same sentence just worded better and you can totally tell whoever wrote it decided to rewrite it but didn't delete the first draft. Don't even get me started on spelling and grammar errors… but some of these things are SO obvious and out in the open that you can tell the person doesn't even scan over quickly what they wrote… let alone proofread it with a fine tooth comb as they should being that their a news website with millions of hits perday! (Yes, it still is technically a news website…)

    Paying her $45 million a year to make a mockery of the justice system. Yeah, that seems fair.

  32. 32

    I haven't been able to find her show on DISH this year at all - what's going on??? As for the fundage - you go girl!!! As I recall she has no agent - so she negotiates her own deals and skips the commission - EVEN BETTER!!!

  33. 33

    Re: Krista66 – I love how she can tell someone is lying by the way their upper chest flushes - she's right a lot - I couldn't believe it after I started looking! I wish she'd been my judge when I went to small claims, my judgment would've been enforced! Instead the guy kept going to jail for other stuff over and over, and then got let loose!

    Also, some of those nimrods who are on Social Security Disability - like the one guy who repaired boat motors in his back yard for money on the side (with all his spare time and inability to work, plus monthly SS checks ) - I hope she reports those people! I gotta pay that bill and I'm glad at least 1 person is watching out for the working Americans.

  34. 34

    Rich or not, she is ugly.

  35. 35

    Everybody loves Judy, And some fear her

  36. 36

    Re: education – LMAO

  37. 37

    I love it when she bitches out! Go JUDY GO!

  38. 38

    Brilliant woman. She should be a justice on the supreme court.

  39. 39

    this old bag just likes to hear herself talk…it's embarrassing how she degrades people….I wish she would just keel over or better yet someone loose it and throttle her.

    It's always so nice to turn on the t.v. and see this woman with a brain. One small light in a sea of blonde, tanned, botoxed, fake mammaried bimbo darkness, but a light, nevertheless. Thank you, Judge Judy.

    she's worth every peeny and more…this is one class act
