Judge Judy Sheindlin, one of the most popular daytime TV personalities of all time, is ready for primetime.

Watch above for a preview of Sheindlin’s primetime special airing Tuesday (May 20) on CBS. The one-hour show promises to take look at Judy’s life from New York Family Court judge to the TV “Judge Judy” everyone knows and loves, which began in 1996 and has been the No. 1 courtroom program in the country for nearly 1,000 weeks.

There will also be new cases featured, where Sheindlin applies her brand of no-nonsense justice, and classic “Judyisms,” like “I’m speaking!”, “This is my playpen!” and “Baloney!”

“Judge Judy Primetime”
airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
