From now on, Jerry Springer will be known as “Judge Jerry.” His infamous “Jerry Springer Show” ended back in June, and now NBC has announced that he’s hitting the courtroom to launch a new show, “Judge Jerry.”
He’s qualified, too – Springer reportedly has a Juris Doctor degree from Northwestern University, and he was previously a partner at the law firm Grinker, Sudman & Springer before his eventual shift to journalism. The show is set to debut in the fall of 2019.
“For the first time in my life, I am going to be called honorable,” he says in a statement. “My career is coming full circle and I finally get to put my law degree to use after all these years.”
