K AREN BROWN , the Democratic committeewoman recruited by the Republican City Committee to run for mayor, didn't get trounced only by Mayor Nutter . She also lost on "Judge Judy. " Brown faced off this week against her former campaign treasurer, Stuart London , on the long-running court-television program. But could the loss actually be a split verdict for the plainspoken South Philly politician? London claimed that Brown owed him $825 for 11 hours of work on her campaign-finance reports in June.

TELEVISION court shows are tricky - the guests can come off as both winners and losers once the cameras are rolling. Just ask 2011 Republican mayoral candidate Karen Brown and her former campaign manager, Stuart London . They appear in an episode of "Judge Judy" that airs Tuesday, arguing about the $825 that London said Brown owed him for compiling campaign-finance reports. Judge Judy - former New York City Family Court Judge Judith Sheindlin - dished out disdain for the complaints London and Brown laid before her. "I don't believe you," Sheindlin replied when Brown claimed that she promised to pay London only a "fair" rate, not the $75 per hour he claimed.

TO ALL THE people of the United States, I hope and I pray that you have "your listening ears on" (a quote from my favorite daytime judge, Judge Judy). President Obama needs our collective help, not our uncalled-for attacks of negativity. He said when he first took office that it wouldn't be easy, and he'd need two terms to clean up the mess he inherited. And most people to be fair should know that. Yet the Republicans only see black and white. Every move he makes to help us they attack to make it seem like he isn't doing a good job. Well, he can't do it by himself.

The lady - that's Miss Diana Ross to you - may be singing the blues as the new year gets under way. The 58-year-old pop diva is awaiting a Jan. 13 court date after police said they arrested her Monday in Tucson, Ariz., on suspicion of drunken driving. A breath test showed Ross with a blood-alcohol level of 0.20 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent, officers said. Police pulled Ross over after someone alerted them to a swerving vehicle. The arresting officer said Ross was polite and cooperative.

Just because you've blown out 50 candles from your birthday cake doesn't mean the fire is gone. Age and experience are sexy, says the American Association of Retired People. Sean Connery, Harrison Ford, Richard Gere, Paul Newman - all there. Sophia Loren, Lauren Bacall, Candice Bergen, Dolly Parton - you betcha. They're all mentioned in the September-October "Great Sex" issue of AARP/Modern Maturity. Yesterday, the Daily News polled about 50 of the sexiest people's peers in Center City, asking who they thought is the hottest over-the-hill celebrity.

Here comes the judge! In fact, here come all the judges. It's going to be an uncommonly litigious fall on the airwaves, as syndicators roll out new courtroom programs to join those already on the air. The People's Court, resurrected, with former New York Mayor Ed Koch presiding (NBC 10 at 10 a.m. weekdays), and sharp-tongued Judge Judy (5 p.m. on Fox, with Judith Sheindlin, who was appointed to a New York City judgeship by Koch), will be joined by a bevy of old-timers and newcomers, all hoping that we, the viewers, haven't already been courted to death.

In case you've missed all the excitement, area native Kim Delaney will star as a local criminal defense lawyer in Steven Bochco's series Philly, which is currently in development for ABC's fall lineup. Philly and Lifetime's Strong Medicine address what I believe has been a serious omission on the part of television programming over the years. With few exceptions (remember Tony Randall as Common Pleas Judge Walter Franklin?), our region has been too long overlooked as an exciting setting for TV series.

Recently, I was saddened to learn that Burlington County had lost an institution of sorts. Retired Superior Court Judge Paul R. Kramer passed away April 21. Judge Kramer was one of those rare characters who, once seen in action, is rarely forgotten. Through his courtroom passed thousands of poor souls who, for better or worse, will forever have the image of this bald, bespectacled man burned into their memory. I was one of them. For about half of the 1980s, I spent more time in Judge Kramer's courtroom than I did in my own home.

The street of dreams often passes through this town, but this week it detours past the slot machines and dice tables. There's a huge convention going on, offering odds that are about as long as winning the lotto, but a prize that's much grander than just big bucks. It's the chance for fortune and fame, and a special spot among the gods. On television. Who do you think deserves a place next to such immortals as Judge Judy, Jerry Springer and - dare we whisper her name - Oprah?

Confidential Memo To: Top White House adviser Karl Rove From: Upper-middle White House adviser Karen Hughes Re: TV-host offensive. Well, Karl, I had a heck of a time peeling Condie off the ceiling after we canceled the Afghanistan feel-good tour. "What am I, chopped liver?" she yelled when I told her that without Oprah Winfrey the trip was a no-go. I can't blame her. She is national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, highest-ranking woman in the White House.

NEARLY 30 years ago, the writer Art Buchwald sued the makers of Eddie Murphy 's Coming to America " over his too-small share of what everyone believed was a very profitable film. The studio contended the film had lost money. Thus continued a long running joke about Hollywood accounting practices. Yesterday, deadline.com reported that Rebel Entertainment Partners had filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against CBS over the syndicated legal shows Judge Judy and Hot Bench . Rebel is the talent agency that packaged Judge Judy more than 20 years ago. Rebel claims it has been denied contractually obligated payments since 2010 because Judge Judy has been "losing money.

THERE'S AN ORDER in the court . . . for three more years of "Judge Judy. " The popular jurist who fixes tsuris , has extended her contract with CBS TV Distribution and now plans to keep her court in session into 2020. Salary terms were not discussed, but Judge Judy Sheindlin , a feisty 72, currently takes home $47 million a year - more than even a Philly Traffic Court judge. She is by far the highest paid person on television. And like a L'Oreal model, she's worth it. During 2013, the last full year for which figures were available, Kantar Media reported that "Judge Judy" earned $136.8 million in revenue.

TAMPA, Fla. - It was just another typical day at spring training. Except, of course, for that combination congressional hearing, Judge Judy and "The Jerry Springer Show" that was being televised from Washington at the same time. So while a couple dozen mostly anonymous Yankees players worked out informally at the minor league complex across the street from Legends Field yesterday, Roger Clemens was in the Rayburn Office Building, once again swearing up and down that he had never, ever used steroids or human growth hormone.

Man the battle stations - this one promises to be epic. KYW-TV's Eyewitness News has declared war on its competition. No, not the competition with similar ratings, such as the cartoons on UHF, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, or Judge Judy, but the other local news operations. Eyewitness News has been mired in the ratings basement since the New Jersey Turnpike was a pasture. The last time Eyewitness News (Channel 3) consistently competed for the top spot with WPVI-TV's Action News (Channel 6)

The judge enters the courtroom and instantly you realize he's not your run-of-the-mill, starched-collar jurist. It's because of the way he walks. He's got the mack-daddy gait going - you know, that cool hop-swagger that distinguishes the streetwise from the street-challenged. With television cameras rolling, Greg Mathis, 42, takes his place on the bench and gets to work. He may be working out of a faux courtroom now, but he has been a real judge - the youngest in Michigan history, in fact.
