joeCBS Television Distribution has brought down the gavel on “Judge Joe Brown (pictured),” the second highest-rated court show in television syndication that stars the no-nonsense ajudicator Joe Brown, reports the Huffington Post.

Reportedly, the cancellation took place as a result of not being able to come to a happy medium over Brown’s $20-million annual salary, which CBS was looking to trim because of the show’s dip in ratings.

Even though all of the syndicated court shows have seen a decline in viewership, Brown’s half-hour daily program has maintained its No. 2 two spot behind the viewer favorite, “Judge Judy, ” whose No. 1 spot beats all of her competitors by a wide margin.

Watch an episode of “Judge Joe Brown” here:

Brown’s show first graced our small screens back in 1998. Prior to his television deal, the 65-year-old served as a criminal courts judge in Shelby County, Tenn. Brown began his career as a practicing attorney before he landed the role of a Memphis prosecutor, the very first African-American prosecutor in the city.

When Brown presided over the appeal of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s  convicted murderer, James Earl Ray, he garnered public attention.  Accusations of racial bias resulted in Brown being removed from the Ray case.

Even though he got booted from the famed case, Brown caught the attention of producers and distributors of the “Judge Judy” show, and not long after, his name became a fixture in homes across America for more than a decade.

The “Judge Joe Brown” show will continue to run in original and repeat episodes until September of this year. As far as the next steps for the suave and distinguished Brown, he has reportedly met with famed TV executive Byron Allen about holding on to his show, according to an unnamed source. As far as Brown obtaining a salary that even comes close to what he is making now, if he decides to cement a deal with Allen’s Entertainment Studios, forgettaboutit, speculates the source.
