Justice with Judge Jeanine was a Fox News legal and current events program hosted by former district attorney and judge Jeanine Pirro.[1]

The show aired live on Saturdays at 9 pm Eastern Time. The show presents Pirro's legal insights on the news of the week leading up to the show, high-profile cases and other recent news, trends and issues within the scope of politics, crime, and justice. The show premiered on January 1, 2011.[2]

On March 9, 2019, Pirro was suspended amid heavy criticism after claiming U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar's hijab may be "antithetical to the Constitution".[3] The scheduled March 16, 2019, show was replaced with a rerun of a Scandalous episode in its time slot. The next day, President Donald Trump tweeted that Fox News should "bring back" Pirro's show.[4] The scheduled March 23, 2019, show was replaced with a special about the Mueller Report, hosted by Ed Henry. The show was reinstated on March 30, 2019.[5]

On January 12, 2022, it was announced that the series would end on January 22 as Pirro becomes a co-host of The Five.[6]

Some statements made by Jeanine on the show were the subject of the Dominion v. Fox News Network lawsuit.
