The Ruthlessly Simple Way Judge Judy Negotiated A $47 Million Salary

How exactly do you ask CBS to pay you $47 million per year? How exactly does that work?



After 25 seasons, Judge Judy, alias Judy Sheindlin, just finished filming her renowned television program. But fear not—our favorite feisty judge is not retiring simply because there won’t be any more “Judge Judy” on CBS. “Judy Justice,” a brand-new production of hers, will premiere on IMDB TV.

Cancel Culture

“To be afraid to express your opinions out of concern that you’ll end up on someone’s list and canceled? America is in a dangerous situation right now. The PC police are not my favorite. Is it PC to say to people who are 19 or 23 years old, have no job, no prospects, and six children, ‘Find something else to do with that organ?'”

Derek Chauvin

Judy also shared her thoughts on the trial of Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer who was found guilty of second-, third-, and second-degree murder in the death of George Floyd.

Judy mentioned the on-site video footage, which was crucial to Chauvin’s conviction:

“When you watch a movie, that is what happens. The events themselves weren’t the problem. The judge was, in my opinion, fairly straightforward. He did not run and hide. There would be no delay, and the media was right to insist on it. A solution was desired by the nation. Today’s age is different. If it’s a homicide, a robbery, a burglary… you often have it on video.”

$47 Million Salary

She then sealed the envelope and inserted the piece of paper inside.

At the conclusion of a lunch discussion, she slipped that envelope across the table to the CBS executive in charge of talent remuneration.

Pretty powerful.

Although her pay for the new show has not yet been disclosed, it is safe to infer that it is at least $50 million annually.

How can a person with a net worth of just under $500 million relax after a day of shooting?

She cleans.

She cleaned the restroom on the day when “Judge Judy” was being filmed for the final time.

Production on Judy’s upcoming reality show, “Judy Justice,” which is based on arbitration, will start in the late summer.
