Jerry Springer’s talk show is coming to an end in 2019, after 29 seasons, and y’all are not going to believe what his next lil gig is. Move over #JudgeJudy because #JudgeJerry is in the building!
Jerry is known for his out of pocket T.V. show, from the crazy fights, to classic reads, and now he’ll be known as the lit Judge.

The show, Judge Jerry, would have Springer, a former lawyer and the one-time mayor of Cincinnati, presiding over small-claims cases like Judge Judy and numerous other courtroom shows.
He will be wearing a judge’s robe and seated behind a desk.
“It’s expected to incorporate some elements of his notoriously rowdy current program, including a raucous, fist-pumping studio audience breaking into chants of “Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!” and Springer ending the show with his signature line, “Take care of yourself, and each other.”
NBCUniversal declined to comment on the project. It is being targeted for a potential fall 2019 launch.
One user on Twitter tweeted, “Judge Jerry Springer … Coming to Court Room Daytime TV in the fall … I AM HERE FOR THAT !!! #JudgeJerry,” one user tweeted.
