What an incredible run from Sheindlin and everybody involved with “Judge Judy.” It’s the most popular court show on TV, and it’s turned her into a superstar.
It’s also made her an absurdly rich woman. That’s something we always love to see. We always want to see people get their money.
It should be interesting to see what she does next. All I know for sure is that Sheindlin moves the needle. She knows how to generate attention.
That’s why she’s made so much cash, and I have no doubt her next project will be a success too.
