Joe Brown, whose "Judge Joe Brown" court tv show is second only to "Judge Judy" in terms of popularity, comes to the end of its run next month. Judge Brown attributes the end of his syndicated show to "trick economics," the accounting methods that CBS, the network that distributes his show, uses to calculate profits. He alleges that CBS's methods results in much less profit than is actually attributable to the show. Judge Brown plans to form his own production company and launch new tv and radio shows for distribution. More here from the Hollywood Reporter.
