‘Divorce Court with Lynn Toler’ Renewed for Three More Seasons

Pick-Up Takes the First-Run Strip Through 2019

Veteran daytime strip “Divorce Court with Lynn Toler” from Twentieth Television has been re-upped by the Fox Television Stations through 2019. Cited as the long running court strip in daytime, “Divorce Court” returned in 1999 with Judge Lynn Toler after a seven year absence. It originally debuted in 1957 and ran until 1962, and featured actors in the individual cases, and was revived in 1967 for an additional two-season run. The second run was from 1985-92.

“Divorce Court is one of the most recognizable titles in the court genre and Lynn Toler is one of that genre’s most trusted judges,” Stephen Brown, Fox Television Stations’ Executive Vice President of Programming and Development, said in a statement. “The cases and drama are real – it’s loud, funny and many times, powerful.”

Season to-date, “Divorce Court” ranks third among the six nationally measured daytime court shows with a 1.8 household rating. Comparably, that is an increase of six percent from one year earlier.
