Sophomore court strip Judge Jeanine Pirro, which started on The CW in daytime and moved to first-run syndication this season, has been renewed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution and Telepictures Productions for a third season. Judge Pirro has been reupped by the Fox Television Stations in the group’s nine duopoly markets (including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago), as well as on the Fox-owned stations in Boston and Baltimore.
“We’re very happy that Judge Pirro’s move to the Fox-owned stations worked out as well as it has,” said Frank Cicha, senior vp programming, Fox Television Stations. “Jeanine has gone above and beyond for us promotionally, and we’re extremely glad to have her on board with us as we continue to strengthen our lineups.”
Added Ken Werner, president, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution: “Jeanine has shown considerable ratings growth in her second season on the air, and we couldn’t be more excited to extend our relationship with our partners at the Fox Television Stations on this successful court series.”
