NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The Peoples Court Live Taping is a fun and exciting way to spend an afternoon. In the show's studio on Fifth Avenue, you'll get to watch Judge Marilyn Milian preside over real small claims court cases. The Peoples Court, which first aired in 1981, was the first reality court show to feature real people and not actors.

Why We Go: The Peoples Court has been a fixture on daytime TV since 1981. Most recently, it has enjoyed a burst of popularity under the tenure of Judge Marilyn Milian, whose presence has dramatically increased ratings among women aged 18-49.

  • Judge Marilyn Milian: Most people go to The Peoples Court Live Taping, not to hear court cases, but to see Judge Marilyn Milian. This sharp, savvy, and fair-minded judge has brought The Peoples Court to a whole new audience with her wit, intelligence, and charm. Her knowledge of the law is vast, and her decisions are final and binding.
  • The Law: Even those who know nothing of the law will enjoy attending a live taping of The Peoples Court. It's a fun, exciting, and potentially educational experience.

Inside Knowledge: The Peoples Court first aired on September 14, 1981. In its thirty year history, the show has featured four judges: Jospeh Wapner, Ed Koch, Jerry Sheindlin, and Marilyn Milian. While it is decorated and run like a real courtroom, the Peoples Court is not a real court or part of any judicial system, but instead a form of binding arbitration.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Get Your Tickets in Advance: To ensure that you can find a live taping of The Peoples Court that fits in with your travel schedule, request your tickets two to six months in advance.
  • Do Explore Fifth Avenue: The Peoples Court is taped in a studio on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue. We recommend visiting some of the famous boutique shops in the surrounding area.
  • Don't Bring the Kids: While it has its exciting moments, The Peoples Court, with its exploration of the complexities of the law, is a show best enjoyed by adults. We recommend leaving the kids at home. 
  • Don't Miss Reruns: If you attend a taping of The Peoples Court, be sure to tape the show when it airs on TV. You'll enjoy reliving the experience and seeing the case from a new perspective.
