Sony OKs Judge David Young



Marc Berman

DECEMBER 04, 2006 -

Sony Pictures Television, the home of Judge Hatchett and the just-renewed Judge Maria Lopez, will add a third first-run court strip to the mix in fall 2007 hosted by Judge David Young, a current sitting judge in Miami. The show will bear his name.

Pitched by Sony as a judge known for his honesty, compassion and wit, Young is perhaps best known for giving jail time to two America West pilots that had been drinking before a scheduled flight.

Judge David Young has been cleared in 55 percent of the country, including 17 of the top 20 markets. Station clearances in the top 10 markets include the Fox owned-and-operated stations in New York (WNYW/WWOR), Los Angeles (KTTV/KCOP), Chicago (WPWR/WFLD), Dallas (KDFW/KDFI), Washington, D.C.; and the CBS O&Os in Philadelphia (KYW/WPSG), San Francisco (KBCW/KPIX), Boston (WBZ/WSBK), Atlanta (WUPA) and Detroit (WWJ/WKBD).

The show was also cleared in several markets served by Sinclair TV stations, including Baltimore (WBFF/WNUV), Raleigh, N.C. (WLFL/WRDC), Cincinnati (WSTR) and Milwaukee (WVTV/WCGV).
