“Cristina’s Court,” Syndicated, Twentieth Television, (2006-2009)
In 2006, Cristina made her English-language television debut on Twentieth Television’s first-run syndicated and 2007-2008 Emmy Award winning court show “Cristina’s Court” (Outstanding Legal/Court Show). “Cristina's Court” won the first ever Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Legal/Court Show. In 2008-2009, “Cristina’s Court” won a second consecutive Emmy Award in the same category. In 2009-2010 the show won its third consecutive Emmy Award. In its debut year, “Cristina’s Court” became the second highest-rated new show in U.S. syndication. “Cristina’s Court” aired on the FOX Network, FOX’s MyNetworkTV and its affiliate stations. The show’s Emmy wins were the first ever for a FOX daytime show.
“Cristina’s Court” consisted of small claims cases but focuses on conflicts and legal arguments between celebrities, families, couples and other relationships in turmoil, including friendships, business partnerships and relationships between co-workers. Cristina brings a fresh way of connecting with people. Cristina is the ultimate crossover host, who while being a hip, professional, multicultural woman, always seeks to introduce traditional values into the lives of people young and old. Consequently, she appeals to young and old audiences everywhere.
With a passion for law, family and culture, Cristina was the first television judge ever to crossover from Spanish-language to English-language television. In contrast to her tough persona, Cristina doesn’t wear “rubber gloves” in her courtroom. She has the unique ability to connect with her litigants on a very warm and personal level by sharing her wisdom, background and moral beliefs with everyone who stands before her.
“La Corte de Familia” (Family Court), Telemundo Television Network/NBC (2000-2005)
Cristina is also known as the enormously popular host of the Spanish language television program “La Corte de Familia” (Family Court) which aired nationally and internationally on the Telemundo Television Network/NBC (2000-2005). Cristina was the first female Judge-Host to air on a nationally syndicated Spanish network series. The program appealed to viewers of all ages. This is the show that put Cristina on the courtroom television program map, airing in fifteen countries and ranking as the second highest rated daytime Spanish language program in the U.S.
“La Corte Del Pueblo” (People's Court), Los Angeles, Ca., KHWY Channel 22 (1999-2000)
Cristina made her television debut on the program “La Corte Del Pueblo” (People's Court), which aired locally in Los Angeles on KHWY Channel 22 (1999-2000). The successful show re-enacted general small claim matters and allowed, for the first time, cameras to enter the judicial arena and bring the drama of legal battles to the Spanish language viewer.
Cristina utilized “La Corte de Familia” and “La Corte del Pueblo” as vehicles to raise consciousness in the Latino community. The success of each show lied on the fact that each celebrated the strength of culture and the importance of family. It also reminded viewers, of all ages and ethnicity, not to forfeit their culture and the great lessons learned from our ancestors to make it in the United States. It is reliance on these lessons, which she believes, are key ingredients to become successful in life.
