Katie Couric August 21 2013
Katie Couric is spending some time with the queen of the daytime courtroom, Judge Judy, on August 21. Also in this episode, Katie gets fitness and diet advice from fitness trainer Chris Powell. What will he have to say about transforming lives?
Katie Show: What Would Judge Judy Say?
Katie Couric was happy to announce that Judge Judy’s daytime court show has been renewed through 2017, which will mark 21 years on the air. Can you believe she has been part of the TV landscape for so long?
Judith Sheindlin said it took quite a leap of faith on someone’s part for her in the beginning. But Katie pointed out that Judy brings her own big personality to the equation. Why does Judy think she has been successful?
According to Sheindlin, the audience wants to live vicariously through her perspective and watch her set people straight. Of course, there have been countless cases of a similar nature, so you often can anticipate what she is going to say.
Katie called Judy “a great BS detector,” and speculated that Judy’s popularity also stems from her forthrightness. “There’s a sense of sort of entitlement that kids grow up with” today, Judy claimed. Do you think that’s true?
You can read more of Judy’s life advice in her new book, What Would Judy Say? See more of her interview with Katie on August 21.
(NOTE: Katie gave away copies of this book when this episode originally aired, but since this is a repeat, the giveaway is over. Sorry!)
