NBC's New Night Court Receives an Emmy Nomination
NBC's new Night Court premiered in January 2023, and it was a massive success. The series saw Melissa Rauch play Abby Stone, the daughter of iconic Night Court Judge Harry Stone (played by the late Harry Anderson). Abby is now taking over her dad's old night shift at the Manhattan Municipal Court, and hijinks ensue. Hijinks that include John Larroquette in his original role of Dan Fielding!
"Let me really be honest, I am 40 years older than when I began that part, so getting in his shoes was difficult because my feet are swollen," Larroquette told TV Insider about reprising the Dan Fielding character. "Luckily, I had Melissa to play against, and it fell into place easily."
What also fell into place several months later was an Emmy nomination as a reward for the Night Court cast and crew's excellent first run. Read, below, to find out more information:

And good news, people: Night Court Season 2 is coming soon! "It’s so rewarding to have audiences respond and return to a show in which they have such incredibly warm feelings, and, more broadly, it’s testament to how broadcast is still a huge driver of communal viewing,” Lisa Katz, NBC’s president of scripted content, said in a statement about the show's renewal. “A huge thank you to our studio partners, a wonderful cast, incredibly talented writers and producers, and a crew that has transformed a lower Manhattan courtroom into a true family.”
“The verdict is in and the ‘new-boot’ of Night Court is a hit! The series’ razor-sharp humor makes the show a weekly must-watch,” Channing Dungey, chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Television Group, said. “We’re overjoyed that court will remain in session and return with new cases for Season 2. We’re so grateful to our colleagues at NBC, to the richly talented creative team led by Melissa Rauch, Winston Rauch, Dan Rubin, and John Larroquette, and to the stellar ensemble cast.”
