Judge Judy Sheindlin is already the highest paid TV personality, pulling down an annual salary of $47 million.
Now the Hollywood Reporter says she has even more reason to celebrate. CBS just plunked down $95 million to purchase the rights to the “Judge Judy” – all 5,200 hours of reruns.
Sheindlin also extended her run on the show through 2021.
CBS may have actually gotten a killer deal. She was initially seeking $200 million for the rights to her library.
