Judge Judy - Season 12
Weekdays 6pm (Double Bill)
With her outspoken style, hard-hitting decisiveness and engaging wit, Judge Judith Sheindlin single-handedly reinvented the courtroom genre and in the process has become a pop culture icon. A former New York family court judge known for her ability to cut through a dispute and get to the core of the emotional issue at hand, Judge Judy acts as a true moral compass for people seeking guidance, resolution and common sense in their lives. Judge Judy’s goal is to make a lasting impression that will discourage repeat offenders and help heal families and victims of injustice. There are many imitators, but only one JUDGE JUDY!
This season Judy sits on such cases as ex-lovers feuding over lies about a child's paternity, kidnapping threats and an assault.
Hoarders - Season 7
Saturday and Sunday 5pm (Double Bill) Hoarders follow the real-life struggles and treatment of people who suffer from compulsive hoarding. Taking a tour of their homes we witness just how bad the hoarding has become and how this affects their everyday lives. To help them clear up their emotional and physical baggage are a psychologist and a group of cleaning professionals as well as family, friends and relatives of the hoarder to help the three-day de-cluttering session. The clean-ups aim both to teach the hoarder new ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour and to make the home a liveable and usable space.
In this season a woman fears her hoarding will lead to losing her children and a man who although managing a successful honey business lives in a home where the inside is a nightmare.
