ABC has released the first look at “Judge Steve Harvey,” the forthcoming primetime court show with the legendary comedian and actor presiding over cases.

Steve must have a great agent because he has landed a show without the credentials of being a real judge.

Judge Steve Harvey” is slated to premiere on ABC on January 4, 2022 at 8 p.m. EST.

ABC describes the show as a “courtroom comedy series” where Steve will rule on real cases ranging from family disputes and sour friendships to actual small claims.

According to ABC, “Steve plays by his own rules, basing his courtroom on his own life experiences and some good old common sense.”

I wonder how Judge Judy, Judge Mathis, and Judge Joe Brown feel about this...

Fun Fact: Anyone can serve as a judge on television and their ruling is legally binding as long as both parties agree beforehand that whatever decision is determined on the show will stand.
