Judge Alex: Syndicated Court Show Cancelled

Judge Alex canceledLong-running court show Judge Alex has been cancelled. The cancellation was confirmed by Stephen Brown, executive VP of programming and development for the Fox Television Stations.

“We would like to thank Alex Ferrer as well as executive producer Kathy Sapp and the entire staff for producing a strong daytime court program,” said Brown in a statement. “Alex’s extensive police, legal and judicial experience combined with his great sense of humor made for compelling daytime television for nearly 10 years.”

Judge Alex debuted on September 12, 2005 and features cases that are presided over by Judge Alex E. Ferrer, a former police officer, lawyer, and Florida judge.

The series is the lowest-rated of the five remaining court shows and will continue airing original episodes through August.

In a statement on his Facebook page, Ferrer said, “It was not my decision to end the show. I enjoyed doing the show and would keep doing it but, for many reasons, the company that produces the show wanted to move on. I am grateful that I was able to work with really amazing people like my EP Kathy Sapp and Associate EP’s Tera Roberson and James Glover; Directors Eddie October, Michael Dimitch and Art Bergel; Bailiffs Mason Burroughs & Victor Simon, my makeup, hair and wardrobe help that changed me from hideous to tolerable; incredible producers and associate producers who found great cases for me to try and so many others in our 100 person staff and crew who made the show a success. I’m also grateful to have so many great fans and friends, many of whom I got to meet; and I’m sure that I’ll still get to meet more of you at other events.”

He also hinted that he may return to television at some point in the future.

What do you think? Did you like Judge Alex? Are you sorry that it’s been cancelled?

I really enjoyed Judge Alex’s show. He wasn’t rude to the people, had good reasoning skills, had the ability to sniff out a liar without the crassness of others doing the same job, & yet could be a fun smart aleck when need be. Most of the TV judges get such a big head & think they know what others are going to say & do before they have a chance to give their side of the story.

BRING BACK JUDGE ALEX!!!

I loved his show!that show was my favorite! Alex and Mason were funny and serious too at the same time.I was looking around to find the show on tv,until I went on the website that the show got cancelled for the season.Who cares about the lowest rated tv show,you should’ve still kept it on,for the viewers,or at least keep the reruns on tv.Get rid of the other judge shows off,on your channel.You guys had to do that,huh. That show was toooo good. Judge Alex and Mason needs to come back on tv together,or maybe come back on another channel.They were that good!

I agree. I was on thet show and the producers tried to railroad me. I was the defendant and I beat him up and won. They were furious.i did my homework and was prepared. I counter sued and they edited thst part out. The also edit out of sequence which is a smear campaign. Good Riddance

Doesn’t surprise me, for Fox to cancel Judge Alex, since they in the past cancelled America’s Most Wanted. Instead they want to keep up with the other networks and put on brainless stupid trashy shows with trashy people etc. Less and less folks are now watching any TV networks or shows!

Judge Alex can often be found including his opinion on various shows on Fox News.

I am shocked that Judge Alex had the lowest rating of the 5 remaining judge shows.
Judge Alex had the wit, legal and judicial experience, and personality to make this a truly enjoyable tv experience for my wife and myself. I hope some other network has the foresight to bring Him back to tv. I am sure there are many loyal fans who feel likewise!
