Judge Judy to end in 2021, reportedly after a feud with CBS, after 25 years and more than 10,000 episodes.

She deserves every cent she gets listening to those idiots, last time I saw it a couple were fighting over a dog and she threw one of the litigants out.

Why do Australian tv networks mostly air shows like late night shows or weekly family friendly prime time animations from America what's wrong with having more Australian made content besides the few dramas series comedies and the 1,000,000 different types of reality shows on tv in Australia

Last I checked the only type of TV Australia does well is the "looking like complete idiots because we copied someone else's idea" genre.

Gave up on free TV ages ago. Fox8 may as well be free TV as well, given that it seems to be nothing but ads with a few crappy shows thrown in between. If they didn't have Highway Patrol (which itself is just a bunch of ex Channel 7 reruns from the last 15 years) and the laughable Police Tin Sivin (the NZ police are more like kindergarten teachers) I wouldn't even bother.

Those NZ Highway Patrol shows have a funny way of pronouncing Subaru.

I agree but in saying that it's better to get the kindergarten attitude than an angry one because once you piss off a cop they will remember you forever.
