NBCUniversal has announced the second season pickup of first-run court strip “Judge Jerry,” with Jerry Springer. The series has been cleared in more than 95% of the U.S. on various station groups across the nation.
In this current season, “Judge Jerry” premiered as the highest-rated court show in five years. The court strip is currently averaging a 1.0 national household rating, 1.4 million daily viewers and a 0.5 rating in women 25-54.
“The opportunity to continue doing this program that I love is a godsend,” Springer said. “I will keep striving to be fair to the parties, as well as entertaining and interesting for the audience. But please know my career ambitions have their limits. I will not seek, nor will I accept, a nomination for the Supreme Court!”
“Judge Jerry” is taped in front of a live studio audience at the Stamford Media Center in Connecticut. The Stamford Media Center is also home to long-running and successful NBCU talk shows “Maury” and “The Steve Wilkos Show.”
