Judge Judy is an American arbitration-based reality court show presided over by retired Manhattan Family Court Judge Judith Sheindlin. The show features Sheindlin adjudicating real-life small claims disputes within a simulated courtroom set. Prior to the proceedings, all parties involved must sign contracts, agreeing to arbitration under Sheindlin. The series is in first-run syndication and distributed by CBS Television Distribution, which is the successor company to the show's previous distributors: Worldvision Enterprises, Paramount Domestic Television, and CBS Paramount Domestic Television.

Judge Judy, which premiered on September 16, 1996, boasts the feat of successfully revitalizing the court show genre. Only two other arbitration-based reality court shows preceded it, The People's Court (its first life cancelled in 1993 from low ratings) and Jones and Jury (lasting only the 1994–95 season, short-lived from low ratings). Moreover, Sheindlin has been credited with introducing the "tough" adjudicating approach into the judicial genre, which has led to several imitators. The two court shows that outnumber Judge Judy's seasons (The People's Court and even more so Divorce Court) have both lasted via multiple lives of production, that is, series revivals and shifting arbitrators, making Sheindlin's span as a television arbitrator the longest. With all its seasons having aired consecutively and solely under Sheindlin, Judge Judy has had the longest individual life of any reality court show.

In February 2006, Sheindlin received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame—during the court show's 10th season—making her the first television judge to receive the honor. By 2011, the Judge Judy program had been nominated 14 consecutive years for Daytime Emmy Awards, though without ever winning. In mid-2012, an article from the New York Post reported: Judge Judy was snubbed by the award show by not even being nominated despite being the highest-rated court show. In October 2012, Sheindlin was inducted into Broadcasting & Cable's Hall of Fame.

Since its premiere, Judge Judy has carried a streak as the ratings leader in courtroom-themed programming. Furthermore, Judge Judy has been the highest-rated show in all of daytime television since the 2009–10 television season (the show's 14th season), even surpassing The Oprah Winfrey Show during the talk show's final two seasons on the air. Judy secured this title and was also named the highest rated show in all of syndication for the 2011–12 term (season 16), averaging a 7.0 rating. The show has been renewed several times over the course of its existence, the most recent renewal being on May 2, 2011, with Sheindlin renewing her contract through 2014–15, which will be the show's 19th season. Season 17 of Judge Judy premiered on September 10, 2012, marking a switch to high-definition.
