Night Court

The WORST episodes of Night Court

Every episode ever - ranked by fan votes!

Judge Harold T. Stone presides over Manhattan's Night Court, where all of the petty, silly, and dime-a-dozen crimes get sent to be tried. Invariably, the cases appearing before the court are bizarre, but that's OK because Harry Stone is not your typical judge. He's assisted by a motley crew of clerks, attorneys, and bailiffs who often create as much chaos as the criminals they bring in for trial.
