Jerry Springer puts his law degree to work while the post-Thanksgiving week offers a first season fall finale and some musical holiday cheer with Mr. and Mrs. John Legend. Dispatches: Weekly TV news Move over Judge Judy. There’s another J on the bench. It may be time to say goodbye to “The Jerry Springer Show,” which stopped production in June, but it’s not the end for Jerry. The talk show host and former lawyer will put on the black robe and preside over small-claims cases in syndicated series “Judge Jerry,” set to premiere in fall 2019. A star-studded cast will bring “Modern Love” to the screen for Amazon. The eight-episode, half-hour anthology series based on the popular “New York Times” column is currently in production and will include Tina Fey, Anne Hathaway, Dev Patel, John Slattery and Catherine Keener. Starz has ordered two new dramas to series: “P-Valley” from Katori Hall and “Hightown” from Rebecca Cutter. “P-Valley,” based on Hall’s play, follows the characters who visit a Mississippi Delta strip club while crime drama “Hightown” explores the drug trade on Cape Cod. Contenders: Buzz worthy shows to watch this week “Manifest” wraps up its first season as siblings Ben (Josh Dallas) and Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) take a big risk to save their fellow missing passengers (Nov. 26, 10 p.m. ET, NBC). The freshman drama, which follows a group of people who land after a turbulent but routine flight and find out five years have passed, has posted solid ratings. Former Scientologist Leah Remini continues to explore the impact of the controversial organization in season three of the Emmy-winning docuseries, “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” (Nov. 27, 9 p.m. ET & PT, A&E). This season will feature eight episodes and four specials. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen want you to have a legendary Christmas with some of their famous friends. The couple’s holiday special, “A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy,” (Nov. 28, 10 p.m., NBC) features songs from the singer’s holiday album plus appearances by Awkwafina, Zach Galifianakis, Derek Hough, Kenan Thompson and Kim Kardashian West. Set in 2093, “Nightflyers,” based on George R.R. Martin’s novella of the same name, follows a team of scientists aboard the Nightflyer, the most advanced spaceship ever built (Dec. 2, 10 p.m. ET, Syfy). On an expedition to find other forms of life things go terribly wrong aboard the ship and the close-knit crew must survive the horror among them. Report Card: A look at ratings winners and losers Winners: Football, floats and canines were the winners on Thanksgiving, which is one of the biggest TV watching days of the year. “Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade” and “The National Dog Show” improved from last year’s numbers and drew millions more viewers while all three NFL games were up double digits from a year ago. Losers: Fox comedy REL continues its decline, with renewal unlikely, while “Lethal Weapon” is currently tied with “The Gifted” as the network’s lowest rated show.
