‘Divorce Court’ Renewed Through 2015

TV’s longest running legal franchise still has more steam in it.

“Divorce Court” has been renewed by Fox TV Stations through 2015, Twentieth Television announced. News arrives after the syndie program nabbed its highest November sweeps numbers in three years.

Show has seen three revivals since its debut in the 1950s, when it was a scripted drama featuring actors reenacting real divorce proceedings for TV. Today, the program is unscripted and features Judge Lynn Toler dealing with real-life couples in her courtroom each day.

“‘Divorce Court’ continues to thrive on daytime television thanks to Judge Lynn Toler,” said Paul Franklin, exec veep and general sales manager at 20th TV. “Lynn’s ability to simultaneously entertain viewers while compassionately counseling her litigants is translating to ratings hights. We are thrilled that ‘Divorce Court’ will remain a key component on local station’s daytime blocks.”

“Divorce Court” is produced by Monet Lane Prods and distributed by 20th TV. Gail Steinberg is exec producer.
