Justice With Judge Jeanine went quiet on Saturday night, reports the New York Times, with Fox News pulling Jeanine Pirro's 9pm show in favor of a re-run of Scandalous. The network had little to say on the matter—"We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters"—and didn't clarify whether the outspoken pundit had been canceled in the wake of her controversial comments on Minn. Rep. Ilhan Omar's hijab or was simply temporarily suspended. Pirro's show made it into newspaper television listings for Saturday night, notes Variety, though the network earlier this week condemned her comments. (More Jeanine Pirro stories.)
