"Judge," the higher rated of the two, starred "The Practice's" Kate Walsh as a "bad judge" who really isn't. The series pulled a 0.9 in the demo in its most recent airing, while "A to Z," co-starring Cristin Milioti (aka: the mother from CBS' "How I Met Your Mother"), pulled in a 0.7 rating, which is the lowest rating a primetime show reportedly can hit before it gets the axe.
