Night Court (TV)

This sitcom ran from 1984 until 1992 and followed the wacky hijinks of the night shift staff of a Manhattan court. There were a lot of cast changes over the years, but the unorthodox judge/amateur magician/Mel Tormé-ophile played by Harry Anderson; the narcissistic, sex-obsessed lawyer played by John Laroquette; and the childlike bear (or "Bull") of a bailiff played by Richard Moll remained for the entire eight-year run. We're guessing Desmond Fellows considers watching mid-afternoon reruns of a syndicated sitcom spending time amongst friends — perhaps he closely identifies with Larroquette's character, Dan Fielding. See, they even have the same initials.
