Night Court information

Night CourtAiring on NBC, Night Court ran from January 1984 until May 1992. The sitcom is set during the night shift sessions of a Manhattan court. Judge Harry Stone (Harry Anderson) presides over a crazy courtroom that is unorthodox at best.

Stories revolve around bizarre defendants and the regular court crew -– public defender Christine Sullivan (Markie Post), prosecutor Dan Fielding (John Laroquette), court clerk Macintosh “Mac” Robinson (Charles Robinson), and bailiffs Roz Russell (Marsha Warfield) and Nostradamus “Bull” Shannon (Richard Moll).

In season four, Judge Stone is bounced from the bench and Roz joins the group. The hi-jinks continue as Dan is loved into a coma, Christine takes a turn with the gavel, Bull authors a questionable childrens book and Mac seems to go into labor.

30 Rock: Watch the Complete Video of the Night Court TV Show Reunion

Night CourtThis season, the cast and crew of 30 Rock really hit the ground running. Oprah Winfrey made a rare TV appearance (outside of her own show) last week. Last night, Steve Martin and Jennifer Aniston (Friends) were the big guests -- or were they? How about the mini-Night Court reunion? Night Court follows the surreal courtroom of Judge Harry Stone who presides over a crazy NYC night court. Self-obsessed Assistant D.A. Dan Fielding (John Larroquette) represents the state while public defenders like Liz Williams (Paula Kelly), Billie Young (Ellen Foley), and, for most of the series, Christine Sullivan (Markie Post) take the side of the accused. "Mac" Robinson (Charles Robinson) is the long-suffering court clerk while bailiffs like "Bull" Shannon (Richard Moll), Selma Hacker (Selma Diamond), Florence Kleiner (Florence Halop), and Roz Russell (Marsha Warfield) try to keep courtroom visitors under control. The TV show debuted as an NBC midseason replacement on January 4, 1984. Though the series began as a run-of-the-mill sitcom, the tone evolved into one of bizarre and off-the-wall humor. Night Court was a top-rated show for most of its nine season run and said goodbye with a zany hour-long installment on May 31, 1992. In the episode, Harry considers different job offers and the other characters decide to make changes as well. In the end, Judge Stone decides to stay on the bench.
