Court Is Back in Session and Judge Harry T. Stone Is Presiding!

(Posted July 26, 2005 by Stephen Strong)

NEW YORK, July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Order in the court! TV Land pleads guilty as charged as the network launches the hilarious comedy Night Court with a 48-hour marathon beginning Saturday, August 13 at 6 a.m. (ET/PT). Starring Harry Anderson as Judge Harold T. Stone, this sitcom made its mark on television as one of the most memorable slapstick comedies of its era. Night Court will air in its regularly scheduled timeslot of 11:30 P.M. (encore at 2:30 AM) every night beginning Monday, August 15.

"Night Court's unconventional style and unforgettable courtroom antics will forever be imitated, but never duplicated," states Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land and Nick at Nite. "Its memorable cast of characters was a remarkable assembly of talent."

A staple in NBC's "Must-See TV" line-up of the ྌs, the series premiered on January 4, 1984. The show centers around a Manhattan Criminal Court, presided over by Judge Harold T. Stone, (Harry Anderson) a very unique magistrate with an unorthodox style. Unlike other judges, Harry's motley crew of clerks, District Attorneys, magic tricks and bad jokes tend to follow him to the bench. He is joined by Dan Fielding (John Larroquette), the prosecuting attorney with an amazing conviction record and a sex life to match; Bull Shannon (Richard Moll), the 6' 8", bald bailiff whose bark was worse than his bite, but not by much, Mac Robinson (Charles Robinson), the sensible court clerk and Selma Hacker (Selma Diamond), the short, elderly, raspy-voiced bailiff with a dry sense of humor. After the passing of Selma Diamond in real life, the show added the character of Roz Russell (Marsha Warfield) as the manipulative bailiff who never hesitated to express her opinion and public defendant Christine Sullivan (Markie Post) as Harry's on-again, off-again love interest.

The following is the schedule for the Night Court marathon (all times ET/PT):
