In 2012, with the assistance of author Pete Earley, Pirro wrote the novel Sly Fox based on her own experiences as a 25-year-old assistant district attorney in Westchester.

Judge Jeanine Pirro on The CW
On May 5, 2008, The CW Television Network announced that Pirro would host a weekday television show to be named Judge Jeanine Pirro, part of the network’s CW Daytime lineup, with two episodes airing daily. The show was distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television and was carried by default on all CW affiliate stations.
Judge Jeanine Pirro was cleared for a second season beginning in fall 2009. Unlike its first season, the second season, which began in the fall of 2009, was not exclusive to CW affiliates. In 2010 the show was nominated for Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program at the 37th Daytime Emmy Awards, and in 2011 it won that category at the 38th Daytime Emmy Awards. In September 2011 the show was cancelled due to low ratings.
Justice with Judge Jeanine on Fox News
Pirro is the host of Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine, which premiered in January 2011. The program airs on weekends and focuses on the big legal stories of the week. In 2014, Pirro claimed ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was “released by Obama in 2009”. However, Baghdadi was held in custody until 2004, when he was released under the Bush administration. In March 2020, she hosted the show from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She did not appear on air for the first 15 minutes citing “technical difficulties”, with Jackie Ibañez covering for her, and when Pirro finally appeared, she was in a dishevelled state, slurring her speech, causing widespread speculation that she was inebriated. After one commercial break, she was even seen putting aside a drink with a straw.
After the 2020 United States presidential election, Pirro was an outspoken proponent on her program of baseless allegations involving voting machine fraud that allegedly stole the election from Donald Trump. Hosts Lou Dobbs and Maria Bartiromo also promoted falsehoods on their programs. Smartmatic, a voting machine company that had been baselessly accused of conspiring with competitor Dominion Voting Systems to rig the election, sent Fox News a letter in December 2020 demanding retractions that “must be published on multiple occasions” so as to “match the attention and audience targeted with the original defamatory publications.” The three programs each ran the same video segment refuting the baseless allegations days later, though none of the three hosts personally issued retractions.
Pirro is the author of six books, two of which are crime novels. Her first book was 2003’s To Punish and Protect: A DA’s Fight Against a System That Coddles Criminals. It was followed in 2004 by To Punish and Protect: Against a System That Coddles Criminals. In 2012, Pirro’s first fiction book, Sly Fox: A Dani Fox Novel, was released as a crime and legal thriller, followed in 2014 by the second novel in the series, Clever Fox: A Dani Fox Novel.
Her book Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy (2018) is a look inside the Presidency of Donald Trump, as well as the politics surrounding the anti-Trump movement. Radicals, Resistance, and Revenge: The Left’s Plot to Remake America (2019) is described as “the latest chapter in the unfolding liberal attack on our most basic values.” Her book Don’t Lie to Me: and Stop Trying to Steal Our Freedom was published on September 23, 2020.
