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 Murray Chapman <>

Did You Know?


The deaths of Selma Diamond and Florence Halop resulted in beliefs and urban legends about a curse on the parts. Some have even believed this was a reason as to why the much younger Marsha Warfield was cast as Roz. See more »


Harry Anderson's romantic affairs with subordinates, while central to the show, were inappropriate even for the 1980s setting of the series. They would have had to end or Harry would have been removed from his role as a judge. See more »

User Reviews

One of my favorite shows of all time, period
28 December 2000 | by mattkratzSee all my reviews

They don't make shows like this anymore, which is a real shame. This was my favorite tv show of the time period, bar none.

Harry Anderson gave perhaps the best role of his career as the manic Judge Harry, and was absolutely wonderful. Richard Moll, Markie Post, and John Larroquette also made the show memorable. If you loved sitcoms that delivered nonstop laughs and great characters, the one's for you. Incidentally, "The Practice" guest star Ray Abruzzo appeared on this show for a few years.

**** out of ****
