Judge Judy is one of the highest paid TV stars in the world, and it doesn’t look like that will be changing any time soon.
Judge Judy Sheindlin has signed a contract extension that will keep her on screen until 2020, and she will be earning just over $900,000 for every episode that she films.
Her contract is $47 milion a year, for 52 days of work. In the next five years she will work 260 days, and earn $235 million. That is $903,846 per day. PER DAY.
Madness. She doesn’t even do anything beyond pathetic small claims. Almost a million dollars for dealing with people who broke their cousins Xbox controller or spilled a bottle of wine on their mother in law’s skirt.
She is essentially Jeremy Kyle in a robe. Although admittedly a lot less of an arsehole. Which is saying something.
I’ve no idea how she managed to wangle such a high pay packet, but she must have one awesome manager.
