There's a whole host of TV judges wandering the airwaves nowadays, but there are only two in our hearts: Judge Wapner of the People's Court and Judge Judy of... Judge Judy. Anyway, which one's better? Cage match! But since we don't have a cage on hand, we'll put them in this handy-dandy chart, instead:
|Verdict: Judy. Both shows are filmed in California, but Judy is a former NYC judge, and that gives her the advantage.
|Verdict: Judy. A bad haircut is better than no hair at all. Trust us.
|Future screen star Lana Turner
|Future prosecutor Ronald Levy
|Verdict: Wapner. Because when normal people get to date future starlets, everyone wins.
|"From the Bench"
|"Beauty Fades, Dumb is Forever"
|Verdict: Push. Because when judges write, everyone loses.
|The Devil goes to the People's Court on SNL
|Turned into "Judge Harm" on the Simpsons
|Verdict: Wapner. Jon Lovitz in a red devil suit with floppy ears gets us every time.
|Called Judy coarse and insulting
|Called Wapner rude for pointing out that she is coarse and insulting
|Verdict: Wapner. Nobody likes a tattletale. Unless, y'know, they're right.
And so, once again we have scientifically proven that the winner is... BOTH! When it comes to semi-fictional, Jewish TV Judges, how can we possibly choose between them?
