Pirro did not mention the episode Saturday night, though she alluded to her absence in the final moments of the show by telling her viewers how much she appreciated their devotion to the show.

One guest was more direct. Rudy Giuliani, a former mayor of New York City who has been working as an attorney for President Donald Trump, told Pirro in one of the Saturday broadcast’s earlier segments that “we need your common-sense voice” and that “it’s an honor to be with you again.” Pirro thanked him for the comments, but made no mention of her time away from the show.
