HOLLYWOOD, CA - September 3, 2008 - JUDGE JOE BROWN, the #2 rated syndicated court show among a field of 11 on television, begins its 11th season on September 8, 2008.
With the start of the new season, JUDGE JOE BROWN moves from WNBC to WNYW, New York, the Fox owned-and-operated station in the nation's largest market, where it will anchor the station's powerhouse afternoon court block, airing at 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET.
Starting Tuesday, September 9, JUDGE JOE BROWN will introduce "Bad Girls Tuesday," a themed episode that will air every Tuesday.

JUDGE JOE BROWN will also add a "Gallery Poll" to the courtroom this season. At a pivotal time in a case, the courtroom audience will be asked to weigh in and vote, using their digital voting devices. The "Gallery Poll" provides instantaneous feedback on whether the litigants' arguments have resonated with the courtroom audience. Viewers at home will be able to see the results on screen.
JUDGE JOE BROWN will continue to integrate testimony and evidence from "Expert Witnesses" into the show to help unravel the complexities of certain cases. Included in the stable of "Expert Witnesses" are: Forensic Document Examiner Rina Salzer, who exposes forgeries; Dr. Melissa A.
