‘Judge Alex,’ ‘Divorce Court’ renewed

Twentieth TV's gavelers back through 2013-14 season

Twentieth Television has renewed both “Judge Alex” and “Divorce Court” just in time for syndie-centric TV industry confab NATPE.

The series have been reupped through the 2013-14 season, Twentieth’s Paul Franklin said in a Thursday afternoon release. Both shows are cleared in 75% of the country, including Fox affiliates in Gotham, L.A., Chicago and Dallas. They’ll also return to stations owned by Tribune, Sinclair, CBS, Local, Belo and Newport.

“Judge Alex,” now in its seventh season, follows the cases that cross the docket of former judge Alex E. Ferrer. “Divorce Court,” presided over by Lynn Toler, has been running in its current incarnation since 1999.
