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 enjoy Judge Alex and Mason. I find Judge Alex to be extremely smart and witty. His show is entertaining and he is so funny in addition to being a fair and wise adjudicator. I am so very disapointed to learn his show is being cancelled. Poor decision on the part of the FOX network.

    Judge Alex is a delight. So knowledgeable with a great sense of humor & not bad on the eyes. Love his bailiff Mason. Get rid of that ***** Judge Judy. She is so cruel.

    Why is judge Alex being cancelled? He is far the fairest judge…great sense of humor. …I never missed his shows and neither did friends or family even if we had to PVR them. HUGE,…GIANT mistake taking him off the air and one I’m sure you will all regret.

      I so agree! I enjoyed that show more than all the others. Fair, manages his courtroom without being insulting. A real pleasant man.

    I thought this was a great show, & much more entertaining than any of the other courtroom dramas, including Judge Judy. I hope that Fox decides to bbring the show back!

    Can’t believe it was canceled. Judge Alex had a great show. Learned a lot of legal information from him. He will be sorely missed.
