Why do people watch Judge Judy and other celebrity Judge shows?
Judge Judy expects a direct answer to a direct question & does not tolerate word-games. This would be fine if she was polite and not abusive herself. But she does not respect anyone herself so should not be in a position to expect it from others......much like a wayward cop who is caught abusing someone.....It's just that their position of authority DEMANDS that they exhibit fairness and objectivity.

Evolutionary Psycho-Sociological Basic perceptual/ behavioral patterns are hardwired into the brain; based on those that offered the greatest chance of survival throughout the evolution of life, then the evolution of primates, and then our evolution. Steoreotyping and prejudicing offer a simple e…nergy-efficient form of behavior, especially in challenging tribal situations. If a bunch of people are green, while some are purple, and there is limited food, the people must form groups, stereotype outsiders, and most efficiently fight over limited resources. Of course, in a world where resources could be plentiful for all, stereotyping and prejudicing often lead to unnecessary problems, and cause unneccessary negative elements. Stereotyping Others Ignorance and lack of education. I had to go to Kuwait in 2000, and my initial reaction was that there would be an "Arab" around every corner with an AK-47. As it turns out, I only had problems with one of the Kuwaiti's I met...out of maybe 100. What I found out about Kuwait doesn't make me want to go to Iraq though! Instilling fear and control It starts from the time a child goes to school and it's always been called "dealing with their peers and the pecking order." There are the rich kids, the poor kids, the nerds, the weird ones, different races, etc. It's ignorance and usually the person or people that start Stereotyping others are actually the weaker ones because they aren't happy if they can't instill fear or bully other people to control the environment around them. Especially children can be cruel about such things and especially teens. When you are an adult you will come across some people like this but hopefully through the years the adult has learned a few wise things and can hold their own against such people. It's what you don't know what you end up fearing the most The thing is that people tend to accept their behaviour as "normal", meaning as the norm or as most people do. But alas, this is usually farthest from the truth. But this kind of attitude comes with a sense that whatever it is that others do that deviates from their behaviour is not "normal" and should be either corrected or pointed out as "deviant". If we, all of us, took the time to understand why some people behave like "this" or like "that" and why their responses are as valid to them as ours are valid to us then we would start grasping the concept of tolerance. It's not that what you say is wrong, it simply a matter of perspective. In my experience, those quick to point others as deviants to the norm tend to have their own skeletons on their closets, and that's most likely the reason to start this judging and stereotyping, to make others look away from them. Some people ... Some people judge others nonstop - often out loud about things of no importance at all, and others just don't know how to behave. I'll never forget one social event where one of the guests carried on and on about just how awful the hosts' curtains were! Why on earth she felt that itch to comment on the curtains, of all things, is beyond me. The complainer couldn't 'plead' lack of education for her rudeness- after all, she had a PhD. Answer Some people are insecure. I suspect that many people find that judging others distracts from their own weaknesses. People view others as they view themselves...this leads to judgement. Don't worry, their is a mirror on both sides. I think it starts because of other people doing it to you when you're a child and then a person starts doing it to others (this is atleast partly true). I recommend that you read the book called "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health," by L. Ron Hubbard, it has more information about this. I don't have time to discuss it right now, but if you have any questions, feel free to message me (Enagee). Insecurites most are insecure so they judge and make fun of others to cover up their insecurites. And by doing this we as human beings feel better about ourselves. (MORE)
Answer To Judge or Not To Judge (7:1-6) [ "To Judge or Not to Judge" , that is the questionbefore us. The proper answer comes from a closer look at Jesus' words in James4:11; Mt 7:1-6 .;] 1. A chosen saying of many people is "Judge not, that yoube not judged" ...It is frequently quoted whene…ver someoneis pointing out the sins or faults of another. The impression isthat we should never make moral judgments in what we see in others.Nonetheless, is that true? Is that what the Bible meant in thescriptures below? James 4:11-17 11 Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He, whospeaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of thelaw and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not adoer of the law but a judge. 12 There is oneLawgiver, F15 who is able to save and to destroy. Who F16 are you tojudge another? F17 13 Come now, youwho say, "Today or tomorrow we will F18 go to such andsuch a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit"; 14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. Forwhat is your life? It is just an instant compared to God's overallplan. y. 15Instead you should express, "If the Lord wills,we shall live and do this or that." 16 But now you boastin your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. 17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to himit is sin. Matthew 7:1-6 1 "Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged;and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye,but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or howcan you say to your brother, 'Let me remove the speck from youreye'; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite!First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will seeclearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. 6 Donot give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls beforeswine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tearyou in pieces. If we see wrong in others, can we never point it out? I amconvinced that Jesus' statement is often misused, that Jesus Taught there are times when we must judge; there are times when itis pertinent and relevant to point out the faults in others such asadverse or unfavourable criticism or the exercise of churchdiscipline. HIS WORDS ARE OFTEN USED TO FORBID "ALL" MANNER OFJUDGMENT A. SUCH AS ADVERSE OR UNFAVORABLE CRITICISM... 1. Like pointing out a fault in someone else 2. Even if it be truly "constructive" criticism B. SUCH AS THE EXERCISE OF CHURCH DISCIPLINE... 1. Exercising discipline of any sort does require "judging" others as to their moral or spiritual condition 2. Since such "judgment" is involved, some feel verses1-2 rule out any sort of church discipline C. Such as exposing those who teach error . Undeniably, it requires making a judgment inorder to consider whether someone is teaching error. Therefore, some people, in lightof verses Matthew 7:1;2 , believewe cannot speak out against those who teach error. .. Another Answer: No. But it's really hard not believe me, I think we all know that.What I do is just say to myself: what would Jesus do? But sometimespeer pressure makes you want to make fun of someone. No. Jesusbrings this up on when He was speaking on the Sermon on the Mount.Here's what he says in Matthew 7:1-5 (NIV)- "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way youjudge others, and with the measure you use, it will be measured toyou. Why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye and pay noattention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to yourbrother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the timethere is a plank in you own eye? You hypocrite, first take theplank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to removethe speck from your brother's eye." There's a fine line, though, between "judging," which usuallyrefers to making the determination about the eternal destination ofan individual, and "observation." Catching someone in the act ofsin is not judging; condemning them without knowing what's in theirheart could be. Likewise, if someone says they plan on going toHell, it's not really "judging" to accept their word. Another Answer: Judge everything and everyone Leviticus 19:15 In righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour. John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judgerighteous judgment. 1 Corinthians 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yethe himself is judged of no man. 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 For what have I to do to judge them also thatare without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them thatare without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselvesthat wicked person. 1 Corinthians 6:2-3 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge theworld? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy tojudge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels?how much more things that pertain to this life?. Judge not Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. Luke 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged. Romans 2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thouart that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnestthyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. James 4:12 Who art thou that judgest another? Righteous judgment The intent of "not judging" someone is really in "not condemning"someone for something you judge to be wrong. The Bible says: "Do yenot know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the worldshall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallestmatters?" (I Cor.6:2) We MUST make judgments, literally everyminute of the day. The key is knowing "how" to judge. Paul judged the GentileCorinthian church in the above passage and berated them for goingto lawyers out in the world to litigate against their Christianbrothers when God's true church should be settling their owndisputes according to the laws of the Bible. He shamed them bytelling them, in effect, that the greatest fool among them shouldbe able to make judgments in the church. Prayerful search of thescriptures usually yields answers to most questions and/ordisputes. God has told us what is good and what is evil. He neverleft it up to man to decide what is good and evil... but to decidewhether or not he will obey the law God has laid down... or disobeyit. It was Satan who convinced man that he is his own god whoshould decide what's good or evil for himself in Genesis 3... andthat God can't be trusted. It's up to the individual to decide forhimself whether or not he will obey God's laws. It's not a groupeffort... although like-minded individuals often group together forsupport and to help and edify one another. And the support, helpand edification must come from the Bible... and be in accordancewith it, or it's not of God. God will judge all of us, each in our own time. He is our Creatorwho has every right in the universe to condemn our works as He seesfit - and He will. Just remember this: the books of the Bible will be opened onJudgment Day... and we will all (Christians, Muslims, Buddhists,Hindus, atheists... all men, it doesn't matter) bave our worksmeasured by what is written in the books of the Bible. "...A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him: thousandthousands ministered unto Him, and ten thousand times ten thousandstood before Him: the Judgment was set, and the books were opened."(Dan.7:10) "...I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and thebooks were opened... and the dead were judged out of those thingswhich were written in the books, according to their works.(Rev.20:12) "...He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath one thatjudgeth him: the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge himin the last day." (John 12:48) "...He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which isfilthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let himbe righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. Andbehold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every manaccording as his work shall be." (Rev.22:11-12) There is righteous judgment - and judging for the sake ofcondemning someone. It's a matter of the spirit. THE SIMPLE VERSION- in other words the truth not sugarcoated Should we pass judgment on others? simply put: NO Jesus said to love thy enemy and love thy self. I'm not biblethumping so if you don't wish to talk about what Jesus said or didthen remember this its my motto: All things born unto this world are born with the right to life. And we can't take the lives of others, or judge others. ANSWER Very very basically: read ALL of Matthew chapter 7 - don't stop atthe first verse. The word for "judge" and "discern" come from thesame root: how they are translated depends on their context (It'slike "test" and "temptation": lf you pass the test you've overcomethe temptation, if succumb to temptation you have failed the test.)Get a concordance and follow every example of "judge" in the Bible.You will find Paul judged, so what about us! Look at judging fromthe point of view of us being members of a Jury: we are just todecide whether something is right or wrong, guilt or innocence,left or right, or whatever: God is the Judge and decides the penalty : we don't. And anyway, we are told we will judgein the Kingdom: how can we when we haven't had the practice onearth now? . Matt 19:28 [AKJV] And Jesus said to them, Truly I say toyou [ie speaking to the 12 disciples] , That you which havefollowed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit inthe throne of his glory, you also shall sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israe l. Matt 19:29[AKJV] And every one that has forsaken houses, or brothers, orsisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, formy name's sake, shall receive an hundred times, and shall inheriteverlasting life. .

he show's creation stemmed from http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Judith_Sheindlin's reputation as one of the most outspoken family court judges in the country, becoming the topic of a http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Los_Angeles_Times article in February 1993. The piece caught the attention of http:…//wiki.answers.com/wiki/60_Minutes , leading to a segment about Sheindlin on the show, which brought her national recognition. This led to her being approached by television producers, who asked her to preside over her own courtroom reality show. The title of her show was originally going to be "Hot Bench." Unhappy with that title, however, Sheindlin convinced her http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Television_producer to change it. Although Judge Judy is the title of the show, it has also become a nickname for Judith Sheindlin. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-cbsnews.com-6 Judy Sheindlin became the first television judge whose name was included in the title of the show. Randy Douthit and Timothy Regler are the show's http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Executive_producer . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-7 At the beginning of court proceeding, off-camera announcer http://wiki.answers.com/w/index.php?title=Jerry_Bishop&action=edit&redlink=1 introduces proceedings. Sheindlin then questions the parties about dates, times, locations, and other facts central to the lawsuit. Judge Sheindlin demands decorum in her court. She will sometimes chastise participants, even audience members, for showing up in inappropriate clothing, and silence audience outbursts, even if they are in response to quips she herself made. Order is maintained by her bailiff, officer Petri Hawkins-Byrd. After this process, Sheindlin renders the judgment, either by finding for the plaintiff (typically by saying "judgment for the plaintiff in the amount of ... dollars, that's all".) or by dismissing the case (the award is not displayed on an on-screen graphic, which is rare among other shows in the genre). When a counterclaim has been filed, it will be handled during the same show segment. However if a case is http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Dismissed_without_prejudice due to a factor such as Sheindlin unable to rule due to other circumstances (such as something that cannot be ruled on within the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Binding_arbitration structure of the series), the litigants are welcome to come back and resume the case later in another episode if the outside issues are resolved. In the first two http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Commercial_break , a preview of the upcoming case is shown. When the show returns from the first two commercial breaks, it airs the voice-over, "Real cases! Real people! Judge Judy!" (recorded by announcer http://wiki.answers.com/w/index.php?title=Jerry_Bishop&action=edit&redlink=1 ), followed by a recap of the current case. After the third commercial break, the voice-over is heard again, providing the show's telephone number and the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Website to submit cases. Generally each show presents two cases, but infrequently an episode will present a single long case, three shorter ones, or even four shorter ones. At the end of a case, the plaintiff and the defendant express their feelings about the case, although sometimes this part of a case is omitted, especially involving contentious or removed litigants. Structure In order to ensure a full audience, the producers of Judge Judy hire http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Extra_(actor ) who compose the entire gallery. Though tickets are not offered for the show, arrangements can sometimes be made with Sheindlin's production staff to allow fans of the show into the audience. Once all the cases are through, all of the audience members receive payment. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-tvtix.com-8 The extras must not dress casually and no logos or brand names may be visible on their clothing. Extras are also instructed to appear as if they are having discussions with each other, before and after each case, so the bailiff may make such announcements as "Order! All rise" and "Parties are excused, you may step out". http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-9 As far as the court cases are concerned, however, what is seen on Judge Judy is neither staged nor scripted. The plaintiffs have actually http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Filing_(legal ) the defendants and that very case is heard and decided upon by Judith Sheindlin. The court show acquires cases by people submitting claims into them via their http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Website or http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Phone_number . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-10 The producers' employees call both parties and ask them questions about their case to make sure it is suitable for Judge Judy . If the parties agree to be on the show and sign a http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Waiver , agreeing that http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Arbitration in Sheindlin's court is final and cannot be pursued elsewhere (unless she dismisses the lawsuit http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Prejudice_(legal_procedure )), their case will air on Judge Judy . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-abanet.org-11 The award limit on Judge Judy, as on most 'syndi-court' shows (and most small claims courts in the U.S.), is $5,000. The award for each judgment is paid by the producers of the show, from a fund reserved for each case. About 40 percent of the cases are money judgments, while the remaining 60 percent are either http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Dismissed or there is an order for an exchange of property. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-transcripts.cnn.com-12 Both the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Plaintiff and the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Defendant receive http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/$100 for their appearance as well as $35 a day, paid to them by the show. The litigants' stay lasts for the number of days that the show does taping for that week, which is two or three days. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-13 http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-14 In addition, the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Airfare (or other means of travel) and http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Hotel expenses of the litigants and their http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Witness are covered by the show. If there is an exchange of property, Sheindlin signs an order and a http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Sheriff or http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Marshal oversees the exchange. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-transcripts.cnn.com-12 There are no http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Lawyer present and participants defend themselves on Judge Judy , as is standard in a small claims court. Sheindlin sees only a half-page complaint and a defense response prior to the taping of the cases, sometimes only moments before. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-15 Most of the cases, without any footage deleted to meet the time constraints of the show, usually last anywhere from twelve to forty-five minutes. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-cnn1-16 http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-17 Recordings and airings Three days every other week (two weeks a month), Sheindlin and her producers tape the court show. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-cbsnews.com-6 They usually produce ten to twelve cases for each day they tape the show. A week's worth of episodes consists of approximately ten cases. Anywhere from thirty to thirty-six cases are filmed over the three days they tape per week. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-18 However, Sheindlin and her producers sometimes only tape five cases per day and two days per week. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-broadcastingcable.com-1 http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-19 The show has fifty-two taping days a year. For each season, some 650 claims are brought to the set to be presided over by Judge Judy. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-broadcastingcable.com-1 This means approximately 8,450 claims have been brought to Judy Sheindlin's http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Hollywood set as of the end of its thirteenth season (2008-09). For the most part, cases are taped all throughout the year except for two breaks Sheindlin and all of the members of her show have for the year. One of the two breaks includes an extra week off in December, as the show is only taped one week out of that month because of the holidays. The other break is from mid-July (only taping one week in July) and all through August. According to members of the show, the reason for this break is because people are more interested in taking vacations than in filing lawsuits around that time. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-Judy2005-20 Altogether, there are 260 new http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Episode per season of Judge Judy. There's at least one new episode for every weekday, with the exception of a few http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Hiatus_(television ) during most of the summer and a couple of holidays. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-archive.southcoasttoday.com-21 The cases are all pre-recorded for http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Film_editing purposes and will usually air one to three months after being taped. The cases are mixed up and not shown in order of when they were recorded. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-22 While the cases taped in March end the seasons, the cases taped throughout April, May, June, and July start out each season in September and last through the beginning of November. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-23 Throughout the very beginning of each season, two new Judge Judy episodes air per day. After two weeks, it shortens down to one new airing a day, followed by a repeat afterwards. There are also various other moments throughout the year where two new episodes are shown for a few weeks. This usually includes January, when the show returns from its short winter hiatus. Two new episodes are also shown daily during the "sweeps" months of November, February, and May. Unlike most http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Television_show , Judge Judy does not air its http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Season_finale in April or May. Rather, it will air its last few new episodes sporadically over the summer months, with many repeats in between, and its season finale taking place some time in July or August. Location Judge Judy tapes at the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/KTLA production studios, now known as Sunset Bronson Studios as of early 2008, on http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Sunset_Boulevard , in http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Los_Angeles , http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/California . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-tvtix.com-8 Every other week, Sheindlin flies out on her private jet to tape Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-cbsnews.com-6 The Judge Judy set is directly beside the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Judge_Joe_Brown set, in the same studios. Both shows are produced by http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Big_Ticket_Entertainment . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-cnn1-16 The two shows alternate taping weeks. Despite its California location, the show displays various images of http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/New_York_City upon returning from commercial breaks, including a subway train that is passing by the camera which reads http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/World_Trade_Center , but is only noticeable if the footage is paused. It also features the phrases "State of New York" and "Family Court" (Sheindlin was previously a New York family court judge) http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-24 within the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Letterbox used going to and from breaks since the ninth season. The set features a http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Flag_of_New_York behind Sheindlin's seat. Furthermore, the title sequence features Judge Judy posing in white robes with light emanating from a raised hand, evoking the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Statue_of_Liberty and therefore New York City (though it should be noted that Judge Judy is actually posing as http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Lady_Justice , as evidenced by the blindfold over her eyes and the weighing scale suspended from her left hand). Immediately before each episode, the Judge Judy version of Lady Justice is shown lifting the blindfold of neutrality to greet the audience with a mischievous and alluring http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Wink . Alterations . This section may contain http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Wikipedia:No_original_research .

Statements consisting only of original research may be removed. More details may be available on the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Talk:Judge_Judy . (May 2008) . In the past, the show changed very little from season to season. The show's music and graphics are the only thing that have changed repeatedly over its past fourteen years. The ninth season (2004-05) is one of the few seasons in which the show made a major alteration; the Judge Judy intro had been changed drastically. A jazzed version of a theme from http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Ludwig_van_Beethoven http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Symphony_No._5_(Beethoven ) was adopted as the new theme music. For its scenes, Judge Judy is shown in a different courtroom from her own (part of a proposed renovation to the courtroom but was rejected by Sheindlin for being too dark), approaching the camera, followed by folding her arms, and smiling at the camera. This is followed by showing various scenes of her presiding over different cases. Before the ninth season, the show used an original tune for their theme music. Various versions of this original tune were used, as the song was altered every few seasons. Used as the scenes for the theme song before the ninth season, was a http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Computer_animated approaching scene towards a http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Courthouse , up until that scene entered into the courthouse. From there, several shots of Sheindlin presiding over different cases were displayed, moving from one side to the other. Those shots developed into the courthouse http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Logo that represents her program (this symbol is always displayed inside of the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Letter_(alphabet ) D, in Judy ), by the end of the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Theme_music . Before these scenes, there was a scene of the courthouse symbol that represents her program, over a green background. Shots of Sheindlin, presiding over different cases, flew into the scene and moved into each of the square-shaped designs of the courthouse, correspondingly. Each show is introduced by announcer Jerry Bishop with the statement: "You are about to enter the courtroom of Judge Judith Sheindlin. The people are real. The cases are real. The rulings are final. This is her courtroom. This is Judge Judy." The colors that represent the show have altered several times over the years. The first couple of seasons of Judge Judy were represented by the colors http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Sea_green and http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Saffron_(color ). http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Blue and saffron represented the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth seasons. Since the ninth season, the various graphics on the show have been http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Falu_red and saffron. As of the twelfth season, http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Prussian_blue had been added to the show's http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Color_scheme for the opening previews of each episode. Season thirteen saw the Judge Judy logo's colours change from what they once were just before the case began. As Of February 2010. The opening previews colours and logo have changed. The only changes made to the Judge Judy set were all mostly made in the early seasons of the show, which includes: the wooding that takes up most of the courtroom was a much lighter shade of brown in the beginning of the series; the wall behind Judge Judy did not always have the shiny surface it has now, with the black and dark brown color mixture (it used to be plain brown); the fake window display along the sides of the courtroom has gone from displaying designs, to going plain and only showing whiteness, to displaying the current scene of fake buildings; the carpeting was light pink in the beginning of the series; there were two different podiums that were replaced by the two currently used podiums; altogether, Sheindlin has had four different chairs throughout the show's existence. She had three smaller chairs before she got her current chair. Her very first chair was http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Persian_blue , and her second chair was http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Hunter_green with diagonal square designs. Sheindlin's third chair was similar to her current chair, only with a lower back behind her shoulders. Though these chairs had low backs, they were all still executive chairs. They were replaced early on by the traditional, executive chair she has been sitting in for the majority of the show's existence. The chair is button-tufted, with a high back and thick padding. It is a http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Burgundy_(color ) leather chair. The white http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Cathode_ray_tube monitor at the computer desk since the first season has been replaced by a black http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Liquid_crystal_display monitor as of early January 2010.

Judge Judy is known for being strict towards either the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Defendant or the http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Plaintiff . If the litigants attempt to lie, or deviate from directly answering her questions she is known to become impatient. Because of her straightforwardness of expression and impatience in making litigants get to the point, to keep them from wasting time on irrelevant and unimportant details, Judith Sheindlin is well-known as a no-nonsense http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Jurist . Combining those qualities with her swift handling of many of the matters brought up throughout the course of each http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Legal_proceedings , Judge Judy is touted as, "A show where justice is dispensed at the speed of light." http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-25 Disbelieving many of the questionable affirmations of the parties that appear before her, http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Lie is the main problem that the incredulous Judith Sheindlin has with both http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Litigants and their http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Witness . In fact, one of her most popular http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Catchphrases is " http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Baloney !" , and she is also convinced that "If something doesn't make sense, it's usually not true." Of all her characteristics, Judge Judy is noted most for her very tough, but fair attitude. If a plaintiff files an unreasonable http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Complaint , Judge Judy may tell him or her to "get over it." Judge Judy also tends to be highly irascible generally towards both parties that appear before her, mostly in her startling explosions at litigants who speak out of turn, try to argue with her, or ramble. Sheindlin often makes such remarks as "I'm speaking!," "Liar, liar, pants on fire," "Sir, you want to say something to me? You sure you want to say something to me?", and "You mess around with me young lady, I'll wipe the floor with you. We follow each other?" In fact, the show's http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Tagline is Justice with an Attitude . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-26 She has explicitly stated that she sometimes sets out to cause embarrassment "in front of ten million people", to someone who has acted badly, as a way of punishing them. Though Sheindlin has a sense of humor as well, it's normally presented in combination with her gruff disposition. In fact even for reactions to her own humor, she will often say something along the lines of "Hey!" to an audience member who is being too noisy and has occasionally had particularly disruptive audience members removed. Sheindlin has many http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Catchphrase , which are referred to as "Judyisms." http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-27 Many of these Judyisms are intended to provide a lesson, such as "Beauty fades, dumb is forever." Judge Judy has stated that the main message she wants viewers to take from her show, is that people must take responsibility for their own actions. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-archive.southcoasttoday.com-21 http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-28 Reception Ratings Judge Judy went on the air in September 1996. By the end of October of that year, the show was averaging only a 1.5 rating, putting it in the midrank of the 159 syndicated shows on the air. At that time, it was never expected that the show's http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Nielsen_ratings would ever compete with highly successful daytime TV shows, such as http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Wheel_of_Fortune_(U.S._game_show ) , http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/The_Oprah_Winfrey_Show , and the now cancelled http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Rosie_O'Donnell_Show . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-archive.southcoasttoday.com-21 According to Sheindlin's http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Biography , producers of her show were disappointed that the show was barely making it on the radar. However, it didn't take long for Judge Judy to pick up momentum, as the show rose to a 2.1 rating by the end of that first season. By the end of the second season (1997-98), the court show had already risen into the 4 ranges, as stated in Judy Sheindlin's http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Biography video. Judge Judy's ratings more than doubled to 5.6 for her third season (1998-99), making her show an early success. This led to the creation of http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Judge_Mills_Lane (lasting four seasons) and http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Judge_Joe_Brown (into its tenth season as of 2007), both are also by Paramount Television. In fact, it was because of her impressive ratings that year that http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/The_People's_Court producers decided to replace http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Ed_Koch with Judge Judy's husband, http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Jerry_Sheindlin . However, he lasted only two years on The People's Court, from 1999 to 2001, before being replaced by http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Marilyn_Milian . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-29 During her fourth season (1999-00), Judy's ratings exploded, peaking at a 9.3, just as http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Judge_Mathis was created, and http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Divorce_Court was revived; both court shows, having made it to their ninth seasons as of the 2007-08 season. Because of Judge Judy's success, the court show aired at better time periods. At that point, Sheindlin's show was even surpassing the Oprah Winfrey Show ( http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/King_World_Productions which launched Oprah was a corporate sibling of http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/CBS_Television_Studios , which distributed Judge Judy ). Not only was Judge Judy reported as the top-rated court show, but the top-rated daytime TV show at this point. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-30 Over the next three years, however, the ratings for Judge Judy declined. This decline started in the court show's fifth season (2000-01) and lasted through its seventh season (2002-03). Sheindlin finally reversed this downward turn when her ratings average increased to a 7.1 for her eighth season (2003-04). Of the seven running court shows during the 2004-05 season, most of them earned a 3.63 rating. All of them, that is, except for Judge Judy, which pulled in a 7.8 rating for that season (the show's ninth). For her tenth season (2005-06), Judge Judy averaged a 4.8 rating. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-31 Court show ratings for the 2006-07 season: Judge Judy averaged 4.6 rating for her eleventh season; Judge Joe Brown averaged a 2.9 rating; The People's Court averaged a 2.7; Judge Mathis averaged a 2.4; Divorce Court averaged a 2.0; http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Judge_Alex averaged 1.9; http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Judge_Hatchett averaged a 1.5; rookies-- http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Cristina's_Court averaged a 1.4, and http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Judge_Maria_Lopez came in last, averaging a 1.0 rating. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-32 Judge Judy producer Randy Douthit says that "they are guilty of cannibalizing each other. Most of these court shows are lucky to get above a 1 rating today." http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-33 As of the early to mid stages of the show's twelfth season, the ratings for Judge Judy have been located in the four to five range. The court show averaged a 4.4 for its premiere week of September 10, 2007. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-34 It scored the same numbers for the following week of September 16. For both weeks of September 24 and September 30, Judge Judy averaged a 4.6 rating. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-35 http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-36 The court show finished out the week of October 7 with a two percent increase in its ratings, averaging a 4.7. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-37 For the week of October 14, nearly every court show remained the same or fell in ratings except for Judge Judy, which rose two percent once again, averaging a 4.8. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-38 The following week of October 21 ended with yet another two percent gain for the court show, as Judge Judy averaged a 4.9 rating. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-39 The week of October 28 saw Judy's ratings up two percent more, at a 5.0. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-40 For the week of November 4, however, Sheindlin's ratings decreased six percent, averaging a 4.7. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-41 In conjunction with the following week of November 11, Judge Judy elevated 8%, averaging a 5.1 rating. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-42 For the week of November 18, Judge Judy's ratings lowered 2% to a 5.0. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-grassvalley.broadcastnewsroom.com-43 For the week of November 25, Judge Judy sunk 2% again, averaging a 4.9 rating. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-grassvalley.broadcastnewsroom.com-43 For the week of January 13, Judge Judy averaged a 5.3 rating. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-thefutoncritic.com-44 For the week of January 27, Judge Judy averaged a 5.6 season-high rating. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-45 The ratings for Judge Judy have made it one of the top ten syndicated daytime television shows. As of the early to mid stages of its twelfth season, the show's rankings has fallen mostly in fourth place among daytime television shows. In relation to the 2007-08 http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Television_season , Judge Judy is the only syndicated show to increase in ratings over the previous http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Season . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-thefutoncritic.com-44 Judge Judy is reportedly watched by ten million people daily. http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-46 Judge Judy's daytime audience is composed of approximately seventy-five percent http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Women and twenty-five percent http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Men . http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-Judy2005-20 In Australia, Judge Judy is seen by a daily average of 275,000 viewers http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-47 , and has been measured to increase up to around 330,000 http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-48 in its daily 3pm time slot on free to air network http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Channel_Ten . Criticisms One of Sheindlin's critics is http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Joseph_Wapner , who was the first http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Celebrity of reality courtroom shows. He presided over http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/The_People's_Court from 1981 to 1993. On November 26, 2002, Joseph Wapner criticized Judge Judy's courtroom behavior, stating, "She is not portraying a judge as I view a judge should act. Judge Judy is discourteous, and she's abrasive. She's not slightly insulting. She's insulting in capital letters." Judge Judy replied through her publicist, stating, "I refuse to engage in similar mud slinging. I don't know where or by whom Judge Wapner was raised. But my parents taught me when you don't have something nice to say about someone, say nothing. Clearly, Judge Wapner was absent on the day that lesson was taught." Since then, Wapner has stated, "She is a disgrace to the profession. She does things I don't think a judge should do. She tells people to shut up. She's rude. She's arrogant. She demeans people. If she does this on purpose, then that's even worse. Judges need to observe certain standards of conduct. She just doesn't do it and I resent that. The public is apt to gain the impression that this is how actual judges conduct themselves. It says ' judge ' on the nameplate on the bench and she's wearing a robe." http://wiki.answers.com/#cite_note-49 While the cases on Judge Judy are actual small claims court cases, the show is not a court of law, but rather an arbitration, and all parties must sign contracts agreeing to arbitration under Sheindlin. Even this status has been disputed: in Doo Wop Shoppe Ltd. v. Ralph Edwards , syndi-court justice was determined not to be an actual form of arbitration because a third party pays part of the cost of the judgment. This decision was subsequently overturned.

She was appointed a criminal court judge judge in New York City in 1982 and then family court becoming the supervising family court judge in Manhattan in 1986. She retired in 1996. The Judge Judy show debuted in 1996. She is purported to be the highest paid TV celebrity. On her show she is style…d to look like a small claims court judge, while in fact being only a private arbitrator and not being licensed to practice law in California. The parties who appear to have their cases heard have mutually agreed to remove their claims from the state court system and have their case decided through binding arbitration by Judge Judy. (MORE)
30 million dollars Nah she is worth more than that. The last time I looked she was making $ 70,000 a day, with a $ 100 million 4-year contract. Do the math. But as to what a person is "worth," I am not clear on exactly what that means. it is easier to answer what she makes. Who knows what she sp…ends, what donations she makes, etc. And consider her husband's worth as well. (MORE)
Because most people don't understand the problem they face their self so it's easier to judge someone else and think they know everything ,when really they are in the same boat ,they don't want other to judge them and be made fun of or put down for their faults as well, so it's easier to hurt someon…e else instead of them feeling the hurt they have had done to them.. Answer . I think the people with the biggest issues are the ones who stand around judging everyone else in a social situation. Low self esteem or insecurity are usually present and they have to make themselves feel better by putting others down. (MORE)
To feel good about themselves mostly. And sometimes its blackmail. If you have a person judging you, think about who scares them and consider if they could be blackmailing your judge. It is very likely. Or it could be personal issues. Maybe that person has troubles at home and needs to take the… anger out on someone. Pretty much anything is possible. (MORE)

Well when she is at her courthroom,she can not be nice to people.But when she is at home with her family,she laughs and has a great time with them
people judge because they think they're perfect. they think looks are more impotant than what's inside. looks are deceiving. never go by a person's looks or what they do everyday. first off they need to look at themselves before calling anyone out. they are going to be lost in life. because only god… can judge because god knows you very well than anybody.looks catch people and they say mean things to make you feel sad about yourself. my name is Christina and i hate when people judge others just because of what their face looks like and what they do what themselves. i was once called ugly and a horrifying BI@@@! i was mad to think someone will actually say that outloud in front of me. im like COME SAY IT IN MY FACE BIATCH!

According to the annual (2013) salary survey published in TV Guide, Judge Judy is currently making as much as $45 million a year.

Alot of times people are jugded ethnically purely because people are afraid of change, They don't like the unknown, it's only natural. Now it may not be the same for all people, they may see or have heard of what one person in a group people has done ans automatically have fear of them which eventua…lly turns into hate for them and the want o be above them or have the satisfaction that they are no more. Take Adolf Hitler for example, he was a very racist person, If you weren't an aryan (which he saw as far more superior than all) then you were as good as dead to him, which is why he started his campaign for power to purge all of the world of any thing less. I know alot of people that have bitter anger towards middle eastern people because of 9/11, alot of racist people that dispise Other ethnic backgrounds like African Americans, Japnasese, Mexicans and more. Saying how America is supposed to have equality for all and how people say they need to go back to their land, why not the white people go back to Britain. they came here and killed thousands of native amrican Indians for no reason just than that they were inferiors or the scum of the earth. Somw times people act stupid and do stupid stuff just because they are trying to be cool or see what others are saying and doing. (MORE)
I assume since there is a limit of $5,000 then the show must pay the judgement. Most of the time these people have no money so how could they come up with $5,000.

The ever patient, ever tolerant bailiff is Petri Hawkins-Byrd known as "the world's richest bailiff". Judge Judy calls him Byrd. See the link below for additional information on Mr. Byrd.
The production company reportedly pay each both the plaintiff and defendant $100 each for the apperance, plus flights and accomodation.

Yes, they usually have a secretary/assistant, and they work with other judges of the same court, and alomost daily with attorneys and other court staff (clerks - bailiffs - etc).
They can easily tell the race of that person, judge them for some things that people of the same race have done wrong, and then assume that person is bad just because people of his/her race did something bad.

Judge Judy (Judith Scheindlin) retired from public service in 1996, after 14 years, presiding over 20,000 cases as a judge in New York City. She is still a qualified attorney in the State of New York.
For someone who is 70 years old, she looks fantastic. I would say "yes" she had a facelift and would love the name and phone number of her surgeon.
Judge Judy does not suffer fools easily. After she passed the New York bar exam, she became a corporate lawyer but after two years she felt that she could do more in her role as a lawyer. In 1972, she took a job as a prosecutor in family court, prosecuting juvenile crime, domestic violence, and c…hild abuse cases. After 10 years in that position, she was appointed a criminal court judge in 1982. She presided over every imaginable example of the worst in human behavior in 13 years, and 20,000 cases later she retired in 1996. That same year, her first book was published, Don't Pee On My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining . Every person that stands before her in 'Judge Judy's' court who is trying to fake her out, tell half the truth, make it up, stands out like a sore thumb in her eyes. I mention all of her bio info to show that she has heard it all; she knows instantly when they're peeing on her leg. She has a very low tolerance for those who are so ignorant to believe that they can get away with anything but the straight answers to her questions. But between you and me, I don't believe that she's quite as angry as she sounds because she doesn't have to hear any cases that she doesn't want to. I believe that she uses these cases and these people to educate the public when they think they're being entertained. (MORE)
Yes, they do. To bring a case into Judge Judy's court, you must sign a contract which is legal and binding.
Judge Judy, Judith Scheindlin, was highly respected while she served as a judge and came to national attention in February 1993, when she was profiled in the Los Angeles Times as a hard-hitting legal super-heroine, determined to make the courts work for the common good. That same year, the TV news m…agazine 60 Minutes did an episode about her. By the time she retired in 1996, after 10 years of practicing in New York City family court and 13 years as a judge hearing over 20,000 cases, she had also written her first book and was a nationally known figure.

Judith Scheindlin of the 'Judge Judy' TV show is not the Judge Judy in court for DUI. It was Judge Judith Raub Eiler, a county court judge in Seattle, WA. Judge Eiler behaved aggressively at her hearing which earned her a five-day suspension without pay from the Washington State Supreme Court.

Because they don't know the real you. They just judge other people in what they see in the outside. But not exactly what's in the inside.
Because they are shallow and adhere to stereotypes.....often they have had quite sheltered lives and not experienced meeting different people and listening to what the person has to say. If they did, they might learn how to not be so superficial!
According to what I have seen, between she and her husband, they have 5 children and 11 grandchildren.
First, it's Judge Wapner not Judge Whopper. Secondly, she was/is?married to the second judge on "The people's court." Judge Wapnerwas the first.
