Has anyone watched him?  He's the first openly gay TV judge, which in and of itself is a victory of sorts.  I really like him, though I find him a bit campy and possibly borderlines on the "stereotypical" gay male schtick a bit too much.  Just wondering what others think/thought if they have seen the program...

What network is he on?  I've never heard of him either, but then I don't watch anything other than the discovery channels, comedy central, and Free Speech TV.

He's syndicated, so it depends on your local listings.  Here he is on what's called "My TV".  He's on during the day.  Here's his website:

I saw him once.  I have to agree with L, I thought he was very campy and stereotypical.  In the case I watched, which involved a gay male band, he was commenting on their clothing (why did a gay band need a stylist), which made it hard to take him seriously as a judge.  Although I did like that after each case he explained the legal reasons for his decisions.  I just thought he could better use his position as a gay judge to dispel stereotypes, not to perpetuate them.
