Judge Harold T. Stone presides over "Night Court", a court which deals with petty crimes which can be dealt with in a dime-a-dozen manner. Invariably, the cases appearing before the court are bizarre, but that's ok because Judge Stone is not your regular judge. He's assisted by a motley crew of clerks and District Attorneys who often create as much chaos as the criminals they bring in for trial. Written by

The cast was offered more money to return for a 10th season, but the show would be put on a syndicated station as opposed to NBC. The cast declined. See more »
The series often describes "unattractive" people (Bull most-often, but not exclusively) as looking "Cro-Magnon". This is incorrect. We -- modern folks -- are Cro-Magnon (homo sapiens sapiens). "Neandertahl" (homo sapiens neanderthalensis) would be the better term of offense. (See Wikipedia for a discussion.) See more »

"Night Court", one of the best sitcoms to ever come out of the '80s, is back in the air in the A&E channel. The wacky crew of the Night Court can always make me laugh out loud ever afternoon after a long, tiresome day of high school. The whole cast is terrific, especially by Harry Anderson (Harry), Marsha Warfield (Roz), and Richard Moll (Bull), but I say the guy who really brings down the house with his sleazy and smart-assed attitude is John Larroquette, or better known as Dan Fielding in the show. It's hilarious to think that he is so horny all the time, that most women would degrade him as something lower than dogs***! But some don't notice how Dan is a good, caring person at heart. You don't know what I mean, you say? Watch "Night Court" at the A&E station
