“Judge Judy” continues to rule the syndicated ratings roost — in repeats — even as Judy Sheindlin debuts her new court show, “Judy Justice,” premiering Monday on Amazon’s free streaming service, IMDb TV.
“Viewers can still catch me at 4 o’clock, with my old hair,” Sheindlin, 79, told The Post. “And the last time I looked, ‘Judge Judy’ was the number- one program in syndication in daytime television. If we can bring half of that 8 million- viewer audience with us [to ‘Judy Justice’] that’s terrific.
“The truth is, I think that years ago after spending 40 years in the family court, is still relevant.” No argument there. Sheindlin moves into “Judy Justice” not only with a huge, built-in fan base, but with new faces assisting her in the courtroom — including her granddaughter, Sarah Rose, who will be the show’s law clerk. She’s joined by stenographer Whitney Kumar and bailiff Kevin Rasco, a former probation officer.
