Popular 'Logic' on TV Judge Shows

It seems daytime television has inspired yet another college class. However, the University of California's Arguing with Judge Judy: Popular 'Logic' on TV Judge Shows course isn't quite what you'd expect. This class identifies popular logical fallacies on shows like "Judge Judy" and "The People's Court" and discusses why these false strategies are so widespread. In other words, the course is concerned with the illogical arguments made by the shows' entertaining litigants.
