Twentieth Television has renewed syndication mainstays "Divorce Court" and "Judge Alex" for two more years, taking each through the 2011-12 season.

To date, each court strip is cleared in 75% of the country for the 2010-11 season, including all top 15 markets.

"On a daily basis, these court programs have successfully demonstrated how to simultaneously inform and entertain viewers," said Greg Meidel, president of Twentieth Television. "We are thrilled that Alex Ferrer and Lynn Toler will continue to rule over their courtrooms in a fair, trustworthy and thoughtful way."
