“Divorce Court is one of the most recognizable titles in the court genre and Lynn Toler is one of that genre’s most trusted judges,” said Stephen Brown, EVP of Programming and Development for Fox Television Stations in making the announcement. “The cases and drama are real – it’s loud, funny and many times, powerful.” Toler has over 20 years experience in law and 10 years at Divorce Court.
This year, the program has grown across all social media platforms. On its YouTube page, Divorce Court averages 1.9 million views per month. It has over 1 million likes on Facebook for the month of January and its videos were viewed nearly 5 million times. As of last week, the show’s reach was 4.4 million on Facebook.
The popular program has reinvented itself three times on daytime TV (airing from 1957 to 1969, from 1985 to 1992 and currently since 1999). In the late 1950s, actors reenacted real divorce proceedings. Of course, today there are no actors and no script — but real people and real cases.
Divorce Court with Lynn Toler is produced by Lincolnwood Productions and distributed by Twentieth Television.
