Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court has been renewed for Seasons 4 and 5, taking the syndicated court show through the 2017-18 season, Broadcasting & Cable reports:
Renewing the show are the CBS, Tribune, Sinclair and Weigel station groups. Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court, which debuted in 2013, is currently cleared in 85% of the country, and Bryan expects to reach that number again.
However, MGM has decided to no longer subscribe to Nielsen’s national ratings service for the show, with Bryan saying it’s “too expensive. Most of these court shows run mostly direct-response ads, not general-market ads, so it’s not worth it. I had conversations with all of our national advertisers and they were all fine with it.”
