Night Court is an American television situation comedy that aired on NBC from January 4, 1984 to May 31, 1992. The setting was the night shift of a Manhattan court, presided over by the young, unorthodox Judge Harold T. "Harry" Stone. It was created by comedy writer Reinhold Weege, who had previously worked on Barney Miller in the 1970s and early 1980s.
The People's Court is an American arbitration-based reality court show currently presided over by retired Florida State Circuit Court Judge Marilyn Milian. Milian, the show's longest-reigning arbiter, handles small claims disputes in a simulated courtroom set. The People's Court is the first court show to use binding arbitration, introducing the format into the genre in 1981. The system has been duplicated by most of the show's successors in the judicial genre. Moreover, The People's Court is the first popular, long-running reality in the judicial genre. It was preceded only by a few short-lived realities in the genre; these short-lived predecessors were only loosely related to judicial proceedings, except for one: Parole took footage from real-life courtrooms holding legal proceedings. Prior to The People's Court, the vast majority of TV courtroom shows used actors, and recreated or fictional cases. Among examples of these types of court shows include Famous Jury Trials and Your Witness. The People's Court has had two contrasting lives. The show's first life was presided over solely by former Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Joseph Wapner. His tenure lasted from the show's debut on September 14, 1981, until May 21, 1993, when the show was cancelled due to low ratings. This left the show with a total of 2,484 ½-hour episodes and 12 seasons. The show was taped in Los Angeles during its first life. After being cancelled, reruns aired until September 9, 1994.
Crown Court is an afternoon television courtroom drama produced by Granada Television for the ITV network that ran from 1972, when the Crown Court system replaced Assize courts and Quarter sessions in the legal system of England and Wales, to 1984. A court case in the crown court of the fictional town of Fulchester would typically be played out over three afternoons in half-hour episodes and the most frequent format was for the prosecution case to be presented in the first two episodes and the defence in the third, although there were some later, brief variations. Although those involved in the case were actors, the jury was made up of members of the general public from the immediate Granada Television franchise area taken from the electoral register and eligible for real jury service: it was this jury alone which decided the verdict. Indeed, production publicity of the time stated that, for many of the scripts, two endings were written and rehearsed to cope with the jury's independent decision which was delivered for the first time, as in a real court case, when the foreman was asked by the actor playing the judge, while the programme's recording progressed. However, the course of some cases would lead the jury being directed to return "not guilty" verdicts.

Night Court U.S.A. is a dramatized court show that aired weekly on KTLA in Los Angeles, California, beginning April 18, 1958. The TV Guide listing for the seminal session explained: "This half hour program makes use of both character actors and people off the street to portray those brought into night court." The show eventually switched to using scripted cases, and was extended to an hour. The subject matter of the cases was often whimsical. An example from season 2 was that of a drunk woman who passed out in a park. She claimed that she was merely bird watching. Most defendants entered a plea of guilty "but with an explanation" and then proceeded to throw themselves on the mercy of the court with the unfortunate circumstances leading to their crime. The judge was played by veteran actor Jay Jostyn.
Sex Court is a US adult-themed cable TV show that was produced by 'Playboy Magazine Productions that made its debut on Playboy TV in 1998. It starred Julie Strain, Alexandra Silk, an unknown man who played the Sex Court 'Bodyguard', Henry, and of course the people who wanted cases 'tried'. Usually, people would submit complaints like 'My wife's had an affair'. The cases would be 'tried' in front of 'Judge' Julie Strain, and sentences ranged from a man pouring hot, melted candlewax on his unfaithful voluptuous wife's breasts, a sexually-repressed woman having sex with a male audience member and another female 'defendant' being 'ravaged' by the Sex Court 'bodyguard' Henry. Sex Court: The Movie is a softcore erotica movie from 2001 based on Sex Court.
Kids Court is a children's television/nontraditional court show aired by Nickelodeon. First airing on September 10, 1988 and ending in 1989, it was hosted by actor Paul Provenza. It was created and executive produced by Alan Goodman, Albie Hecht, and Fred Seibert; produced by Chauncey Street Productions, a division of Fred/Alan, Inc., in New York. It claimed to utilize grievances made by children mailed to the studio -- each side of a grievance would be represented by a child in the audience, and at the end of their argument, children in the audience would cheer. The "Judge-o-meter", a cardboard rendering of an English judge with peak meters for "eyes", would measure the decibels of the screaming, cheering children, and the side that generated the most screaming and cheering would win the argument. The "Judge-o-meter" system would also be used to "sentence" the guilty party -- sentences would be suggested by children in the audience. The show also had two courtroom sketch artists during the course of the show, Nobi Nakanishi and Asha Canalos. During commercial breaks, the show would have quick quiz questions for children, about the legal system. Kids Court was part of Nickelodeon's "Cable in the Classroom" promotion.
Love Court was a MuchMusic Canadian TV series that aired in 2009. The series was hosted by recording artist Elise Estrada and was cancelled after 20 episodes due to poor ratings.
Moral Court is a nontraditional court show that is hosted by opinionated Larry Elder, and originally ran from 2000 to 2001. The program had the same concept as a legality court show however the cases were based on opinion based ethics and morality judged by Elder with the winner of the case leaving with a cash prize. The judge decides after hearing the case who is morally right and how much to award. If he finds one party to be merely wrong, he'll award a $500 cash prize. If he finds it to be a more serious moral problem, he terms it offensive, and awards a $1,000 cash prize. If he finds it to be extremely bad, he terms it outrageous, and awards the show's maximum judgment, a $2,000 cash prize. The judge could also dismiss the case if he finds both parties to be wrong. After every case on Moral Court, court reporter/interviewer Vivian Guzman would ask both parties a few questions and let them say their opinion on the outcome of the case. Out of all other court shows on television to this day, Moral Court was the only court show that dealt with ethics and morality rather than legality, hence why the parties were not referred to as the "Plaintiff" and "Defendant", but rather, the "Accuser" and the "Accused". The cases on the show would generally not be taken in a legal court. Moral Court received bad reviews and low ratings, resulting in the show not being renewed for a second season. The show was distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution and produced by Stu Billett Production Inc. The show was created by Stu Billett, who also co-created The People's Court.
