TV judges are, as often as not, judges on TV because they couldn't hold a job as a real judge.  Judy Judy, for example, was known for making decisions that were solely her personal opinion and in conflict with legal statutes.  By comparison, Judge Wapner of the People's Court was an experienced judge, who would quote legal principles when making a decision. 

Mills Lane had more experience in the boxing ring than the courtroom.  Joe Brown came to TV after being removed from the James Earl Ray retrial.  Greg Mathis was more of a political mover & shaker than a judicial figure and served one term as an elected District Court judge.  So, being a TV judge has more to do with image and possessing a glib tongue than real judicial skill and experience.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
