INFOTAINMENT FOR THE PEOPLE OF EARTH SINCE 2006

NEW COURT SHOW IS A FAKE!

If you haven't checked out America's Court with Judge Ross, don't bother. The new court show is fake. The show, which looks very real, premiered in September. It's the latest project from Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios and is presided over by real judge Kevin Ross. The judge is the only thing that's real on this show. The litigants are all paid actors. Don't believe it? Check out the disclaimer at the end of the show that says all characters are fictional. What a joke. The show presents itself to be real and looks like any other court show. Total scam. Who wants to watch actors? Why even use them? Doesn't this "judge" have better things to do than preside over fake cases? Stick to Judge Judy.

Yes this is true. The show is set up with cases "based" on real ones. They are presented to the Judge at the time the show starts, so his reactions are real. But everything else is fake.

Who wants to watch actors? Depends on the actor. You mean, sometimes things on tv that seem real aren't!?! *gasp. After so much real (ish) reality that is utter crap its kinda funny to see actors taking it back! This is just another phase of the blur between entertainment and reality. Reno 911 and every Christopher Guest movie are examples of reality that is heightened and interesting through interpretation presented as "real". Perhaps Judge Ross should be seen as a gifted improvisation artist as well as a legitimate judge. Your one critique is that its "fake" - sounds like a novel selling point to me

The show is very entertaining, based on real life situations/cases. I don't think its any different than those who watch the "soaps". Besides, the advice and counsel is worth my time in watching the show. Thanks!

"Judge" is fake, too. He was booted from ever being a judge or practicing law again.

Basically, he's a smart, good looking sociopath with legal education and experience, wanting to be a celeb.

Check out follling to see why.

Their is nothing more stupid then faking a reality show. Bad enough editing and producers make them far from reality as it is, they no people are zombies and will watch anything, please prove them wrong and say no to this spew, and while your at it no to realuty tv period

The ENTIRE show is fake---including "Judge" Ross. In 2006, he was DISBARRED/REMOVED FROM THE BENCH and is not eligible to practice law in California. This show is a JOKE!!

Umm, the diclaimer at the end of the show and many other shows, including operation repo, is a standard disclaimer that many shows and movies use so they cannot be sued by anyone for defamation, by a company or bussiness. For example, if a person on the show says he works for a certain company, and then acts immature or irresponsible, that looks bad on the company he works for because they hired him, so with that disclaimer, the company that person works for cannot sue the show. The disclaimer started in 1932 when the russian princess sued MGM for a movie in which a character resembled her, so the show is very real

After watching this show for almost a week, I was convinced that the litigants are actors. I have watched many court programs and the emotions are usually real. These are all fake! I watched my last America's Court for the last time.

 
At 12:37 AM, Blogger hot grits said...

Before I had even read the disclaimer at the end of the show recently, I had been watching the show for several weeks and noticed that many of the cases seemed so rehearsed and scripted. Certain things the litigants would say didn't make sense and Ross would not question them about it. And, unlike other judge shows, they do not give you a phone number to call or website to visit if you have a case that you would like to have in front of Judge Ross. So, yes, the show is a total fraud.

How disappointing :( A disgraced Judge who begins his show with his mantra about the concept of the law is to right a wrong - and even that is wrong. That is the concept of Justice. I guess the cost of a real former judge made the cost of a show using real litigants prohibitive? I've been on the People's Court two times, and I've received correspondence from Judge Alex and Judge Joe Brown so I know those shows use real litigants. You don't have to pay real people scale, and real people don't have to sign up with AFTRA for $1,500. The way the People's Court works, it's a win-win because even if you lose, you win. They pay the judgments. So sad that this Byron guy had to make up a show based on everybody else's concept.

As far as the Christopher Guest comment, his films are more of a caricature of segments of society such as local theatre, dog shows, folks singers. This is just an insult to our intelligence. At least with Operation Repo, you get to see cars falling off the truck like that BMW and you know it's fake because as angry as these people seem to get, they never talk down to Sonja who, lets face it, looks a bit bizarre for hanging in San Fernando Valley and LA. Even a family business presents itself more professionally.

I took America's Court off the DVR today. *sigh*

Actually, even "Judge" Ross is a fake.

He was removed from the bench in 2005 and is banned to practice law in California.

So Ross is a former Judge, removed for cause, not retired in good standing.

the so called judge is condesendig and arrogannt, he acts like he knows it all when he was fired from the judical court and why are all his shows repeat? he has no compassion or empathy for anyone but his baliff. i will be gad when they take the show off the air for good

 
At 6:33 PM, Blogger jljerome said...

If you compare the body language and voice inflections of the litigants in the Judge Ross Show (and the Gloria Alred show)to the litigants on other Courtroom shows, you can tell they are actors; iit takes a lot more time in rehearsal to be cconvincing.

The show is fake, but Kevin A. Ross is brilliant! He was disbarred, but he turned apples into apple cider! Can the rest of you (negative) bloggers do that? That's what life is about! Use what you have to the best of your ability. Congrats Kevin A. Ross!!!

I stayed home today because I am very sick and never watch daytime tv. I watched this show for about 5 min and knew it was fake. I have never seen such a bad court show in my life. What has America become!!

 
At 1:59 PM, Blogger Unknown said...

I been watching this show for a while and today I got the feeling this show is scripted so then I decided to do a little "digging" and sure enough came across this page about Judge Ross being disbarred! WOW! I was watching the case about the woman that let her good friend house-sit and she turned her house into a bed and breakfast while her friend was in Europe...after a bit I thought, wait a minute, this seems phony and sure enough it is! I never paid attention to the disclaimer at the end of the credits before, I guess I should have! I guess I won't be watching anymore. I must admit it, I was duped, I had some respect for Ross, but now after reading the document of his disbarment no more, yuck...

I am so glad I checked this out on the Internet. I watch the show when I am home which is not very often but I just thought the whole show was a carefully scripted Hollywood joke. The "litigants" are obviously wanna be actors (most of them stink as actors) and the judge gave me the creeps-calling himself "Boss Ross" and hamming it up. And now I hear that he has beendisbarred? Why is he even on TV? He is a scam artist and he show should be removed. They crow about being Emmy nominated.....

Kevin Ross!! disbarred?? fake ass phony show? who would have figured?!!! he's a black republican! that right there told me he a fake ass clown! maybe limbaugh will invite him over for coffee one day and have him on the show! Assholes come in all colors

 
At 1:50 AM, Blogger Kennith Perry said...

Ithis garbage isn't based on real cases, today's "case" was based on 70's sitcom Threes Company, it had a chief named Jack that pretended to be gay to live with two women named Janet and Christy, the landlord was named Mrs. Stanley, in the show Stanley Roper was the landlord. Not to mention the "judge" is a disgraced judge that was thrown off the bench and lost his law license. FAKE!

 
At 9:38 AM, Blogger Seeker of Justice said...

That's what made me start looking to see if the case was fake too. I'm watching that episode now.

 
At 3:21 AM, Blogger keepnitreal said...

ALL of the "judges" that on any of the daytime t.v. shows are retired, they are no longer judges they are mediators or arbitrators. So it's no difference. I would rather watch Judge Ross than hear Judge Judy yell all day and tell everyone she comes into contact with how much smarter she is than them. Real or fake...it's entertaining and that is what t.v. is for, entertainment.

I just watched America's court and read the credits at the end. They have lost me as a viewer. I won't watch a fake court room show. My family was on Judge Judy and her show is real.

You are correct,how is this even allowed?.....everyone on staff is a paid actor.Have to friend who was paid as a plaintif....turn off the tv and make a trip to your local district court and sit in and watch real cases be tried in a real court room....an individual will learn way more than viewing this fake BS on tv...maybe producers will take these mindless shows off the air and replace with something better...

After watching the other real court cases such as Judge Judy, People's Court, Judge Mathis etc., I finally realized how fake this one is. The litigants are not very good actors. They don't compare to real people. I'll never watch it again. Boring.

After comparing this show to the real ones, nobody had to tell me how fake it was. Won't watch it again.

Gloria Allred and Joe Ross are not presiding over real cases. One of the casting directors is Byron Allen's sister. I auditioned for the show, was selected and then they decided not to use me. These people are tight wads. They pay "actors" a mere $50. for the gig!

When i watched the show for the first time i smelled a rat. i jumped right on the internet to do some digging. VOILA, fake as ever. I knew it cause of the actors, its like they have to feed off one another to make the story come together. They're always looking at the other side as they talk. A REAL judge would tell them not to talk to each other, cause if that was the case they wouldnt be in court.

If you think he's bad ,then don't watch Paternity court. I'ts another fake judge show. I'm sticking to Mathis,judy,and brown. At least they don't act fake. Mathis does give excellent advice to his viewers.
Remember it's entertainment like springer,maury,etc.

I posted a comment here on the page and it did not show it I guess because I defended Judge Ross and the show he had on yesterday where the bride drug her baby on the back of her wedding gown. I know this is true because I saw it on the internet and the picture of her and her baby on the back of her gown. Wonder why this wasn't posted where all of the negative reviews are made to Judge Ross.
