Jeanine Pirro Gets Fox News Show

Fox News will debut a new Saturday primetime program hosted by Jeanine Pirro, the network said Tuesday.

Pirro, the former Westchester County District Attorney turned syndicated court show host, is a Fox News legal analyst. The program, titled "Justice with Judge Jeanine," will premiere on January 8.

"Judge Pirro is one of the most respected judges and sought-after legal commentators," Fox News SVP of Programming, Bill Shine, said in a statement. "We're thrilled to bring her experience and expertise to Fox News' weekend lineup."

The show is expected to present Pirro's views on the week's news, high-profile court cases, and recent trends and issues in the criminal justice world.
