Judge Mathis canceled after 24 seasons

I am disappointed to report “Judge Mathis” has been canceled by Warner Bros. after 24 seasons. 

Judge Greg Mathis, a former judge of Michigan’s 36th District Court, is the longest-running Black male host on television and the second-longest-reigning arbitrator in courtroom TV history, behind “Judge Judy” star Judith Sheindlin.  

The People’s Court” was also canceled after 26 seasons.

The series received an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding TV News, Talk or Information (Series or Special) in 2004, and a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program in 2018.

In May 2022, Mathis was honored with the 2,722nd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Over the course of the show’s history, Judge Mathis presided over 13,000 cases on his show.

Mathis’ no-nonsense approach at the bench and his lack of hesitation when it comes to calling someone a “crackhead” has sustained the popularity of the show.

Two decades later, “Judge Mathis” is still a trending topic on social media. 

In 2022, Greg extended his TV reach by stepping into the world of reality TV with “Mathis Family Matters” on E!

The docuseries follows Greg Mathis and his wife, Linda as two of their adult children move back to Los Angeles to all find their way and join the rest of the family. 

Daytime TV won’t be the same without “Judge Mathis.”

  1. I love the Judge Mathis show, I recorded and watched the show on a daily basis, through the years I learned a lot about the law, I learned many helpful tips on how to handle real life situations of many aspects, However I knew one day the show would end. and just like every other good paying job along the way of making good money you have to manage your finances so that when that day comes when the company terminates your employment for whatever reason you move on and say it was good while it lasted and best of all you can say to yourself, I’m good, I’ll be ok. Successfully managing and investing your finances will help you survive anything an employer can put you through.

  2. Keep Judge Mathis on the air, he not only knows the law, he knows about real life issues. I guess he’s a black man too smart for his pants.

  3. I have been a fan for a while I haven’t watched his show lately always working but when I am home and not doing anything I watch some times I wish him all the best .

  4. He can just go to cable like judge Judy 🤷🏽‍♀️ maybe it’s a blessing in disguise. But I stopped watching years ago. He is very disrespectful.😂

  5. I used to be a huge fan of the show. But, not so much here lately. He talked way too much during the cases. By the time he finished with his rheteric, the people done forgot what they were suing for, lol. So, I don’t really care that he was cancelled. I had stopped watching anyway!

  6. I have been a fan of Judge Mathis for all of the 24 years that he’s been on television. This is a big mistake and the powers that be will find out. It’s a shame
