Get ready for a little justice in your afternoons.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Nancy Grace is getting her own day time talk show, set to debut in Fall 2010.

'Swift Justice With Nancy Grace' will appear on 48 of the top 50 markets across the country, which isn't surprising, as her popularity has risen over the last few years, making her a household name. But what's odd about this show is that her format eschews the normal, hourlong format; instead, it will air as back-to-back half-hour episodes.

Grace will continue to host her legal show on HLN, which currently airs nightly at 8PM. But the question remains: Will she serve as a decent enough replacement for what we'll now dub the pending "Oprah-void?"Get ready for a little justice in your afternoons.

While her daytime slot will surely increase her exposure, Grace has made a name for herself not because she's sweet and nurturing to those who are going through trauma (don't believe us? watch this). In fact, it's quite the opposite. Grace's hardball, tough-as-nails approach tends to alienate some and attract others who enjoy tough love. That said, controversy has followed Grace over the last few years. Some say she embellished the story of her fiancée's murder in her book 'Objection!' In 2006, one of Grace's guest committed suicide a few weeks after an interview.

It's unknown who will be on the receiving end of Grace's "swift justice" or how justice and a talk show format work together. In the meantime, tell us: Will you be tuning in for an afternoon dose of 'Swift Justice'?
