TV Tidbits: ‘Mad Men’ Ratings Take a Dip; Judge Judy Will Be Around Forever

Mad Men Takes a Jump: And not in the way Draper’s failed ad pitch was suggesting. Sunday’s two hour Season 6 premiere drew in 3.4 million viewers — a decent number for the AMC hit, but still down from the 3.5 million that tuned in for Season 5′s premiere last year. If creator Matt Weiner or his cast are upset at this news, they can go home and cry into their Emmys. [TVLine]

Judge Judy to Judge Forever: Judy Sheindlin will still be judging you when you’re in the grave. Okay, so that’s a bit morbid, but Judge Judy has been officially renewed until 2017, which is absolutely insane. The show is currently on its 17th season so that will make… 21 seasons? I don’t know, this is not a site for math. [EW]

The Good Wife Gets Streeped: Well, they get her daughter, which is close enough. Mamie Gummer will return to CBS’ hit drama on April 21, as Nancy Corzier, the occasional thorn in Alicia’s side. Gummer will be up against Alicia for the case we reported on earlier this month — the software engineer contract dispute, which also features an appearance by Joss Whedon staple Fran Kranz. [TVLine]

American Ninjas Kick Back: Ninja Warrior is only like, the coolest show ever, so we’re not surprised to hear that the impossible obstacle course from Hell will return this summer. The only difference is, this year host Jonny Moseley has been replaced by NFL Network sports analyst Akbar Gbaja Biamila and ESPN sports broadcaster Jenn Brown. [EW] 

Don’t Fear the Reaper: Fans of CW’s cult comedy series Reaper have nothing to fear thanks to FearNet. The network is giving the show a one-night-only reunion to coincide with the network’s first off-net rights purchase of the series two seasons. The special is slated to premiere on June 4, 2013. [Deadline]
