Judge Judy Career
“Do not Pee On My Leg and Tell Me It is Raining,” her debut book, was published in 1995, and it provides insight into how and why the family court struggles to influence shattered families in its purpose. “Beauty Fades, Dumb Is Forever,” her second book, was released in January 1999. The book, a New York Times best-seller, encourages women to be their best selves.
Her debut children’s book, “Win or Lose By How You Pick,” was released in 2000, followed the following year by “You Can not Judge A Book By Its Cover.” Both books were created to assist parents in bonding with their children and teaching basic moral ideals.
Keep It Easy, Stupid: You are Smarter Than You Look, Judge Sheindlin’s third adult fiction, also on the New York Times best-seller list and published in 2000, presents her ideas and thoughts on resolving daily family squabbles.

Judge Judy debuted in nationwide syndication in September 1996. The show quickly became a smashing hit, thanks in large part to Sheindlin’s magnetic personality. Judge Judy took the top spot for syndicated shows in February 1999. She even began to outperform Oprah in certain key markets, such as New York. By August 1999, the show had reached a weekly audience of approximately 7 million people.
The success of Judge Judy prompted the creation of several more daytime court shows, including Judge Joe Brown, Hatchett Judge, and Mathis Judge. Judge Judy was one of the most popular daytime television shows, with over 10 million people each day.
Sheindlin claimed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in March 2020 that after its 25th season, Judge Judy would stop taping new episodes and that a new show was in the works.
