CBS Television Distribution has brought down the gavel on “Judge Joe Brown (pictured),” the second highest-rated court show in television syndication that stars the no-nonsense ajudicator Joe Brown, reports the Huffington Post.
Reportedly, the cancellation took place as a result of not being able to come to a happy medium over Brown’s $20-million annual salary, which CBS was looking to trim because of the show’s dip in ratings.
Even though all of the syndicated court shows have seen a decline in viewership, Brown’s half-hour daily program has maintained its No. 2 two spot behind the viewer favorite, “Judge Judy, ” whose No. 1 spot beats all of her competitors by a wide margin.
