‘Judge Judy’ tops ‘Oprah’

Los Angeles Times - - Calendar -

“Judge Judy” won a rat­ings ver­dict over “Oprah” last sea­son to rank No. 1 among day­time se­ries.

Ac­cord­ing to Nielsen fig­ures, Judy Sheindlin’s court­room show av­er­aged 6.3 mil­lion daily view­ers, com­pared with 5.7 mil­lion for Oprah Win­frey’s talk show. “Judge Judy” be­came the first show to knock “Oprah” out of the top spot in a decade — and it was “Judge Judy” that did it the last time too.

Win­frey re­lied on more re­runs than usual last sea­son, which af­fected her rat­ings.

Sheindlin is in her 15th year with the le­gal show. Win­frey, who’s in the 25th and fi­nal sea­son of her syndi­cated show, will launch a new cable net­work in Jan­uary.

“Judge Judy” has been re­newed through 2013.
