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 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.”
Were you a fan of the show?
