  • Amw being cut by fox

    The FOX network wants to remove America's Most Wanted from the Saturday night lineup and just have four, two hour specials during the year. I feel this is a slap in the face to Law Enforcement and America. When I see how many fugitives have been captured because of AMW I think it is a shame for FOX to cut this program. If you LEO's agree with me please send FOX an email and give them a piece of your mind.

    Is it just AMW or is it also Cops?

    I find it funny when networks, especially FOX, cut "anchor" shows for new shows, thinking it's going to work out. Not realizing their viewership for those days/hours are for those particular shows, not because they like the network.

      Worse than that, their current plan is to show re-runs of syndicated programs in that time-slot. That makes a lot of sense.

        If I fired off an e-mail or a letter to everyone who ever, in any way, "slapped LE and America in the face," I'd have carpel tunnel within a week, or two.

        Just my .02 but after all, in the final analysis, FOX is a business for profit. When it's not turning a huge profit any longer, it's probably time to re-assess, re-invent, or re-package the product...or let someone else take over the brand. There are soooooo many networks on cable who could, if they wanted to, pick it up and still get the word out as AMW has done. Should we have raised this same issue when NBC put Unsolved Mysteries out to pasture?

        AMW has done great things and has had a great run. Maybe, just maybe, they're getting tired and slowing down on their own. Maybe they're savoring their successes and deciding to "declare victory and move on" rather than fizzle out. I just heard Jerry Lewis is going to finally step down. Was AMW supposed to go on like the the labor day telethon for another two decades? May God bless John Walsh for what he's done and give him comfort, a sense of personal satisfaction and some emotional relief for the reasons he got involved in the first place.

        Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

          Exactly HOW is this a 'slap in the face' to law enforcement?

          The last time I checked, FOX (and every other media outlet) is a business FOR PROFIT.....if the show no longer fits that bill, then they are going to remove it and go with something else that makes more $$$$$$.

          I never watched AMW anyway.....or Cops for that matter, except when they had LASD on for the one season.

              Exactly, I feel bad for his families loss, but John Walsh is still a d-bag

                you ever see the AMW COPS episode? think it was in Jacksonville Florida. Walsh is riding with some poor bastard and they hook up a guy for, i dont know, jaywalking. Walsh goes up to the bad guy, whos handcuffed, points his finger at him and says, "Youre in big trouble now buddy". Like thats the hardest thing anyone has ever said to another person...

                I just sat there like, this guy truly is an idiot.

                  AMW did some good despite Walsh and it was one of the better shows out there compared to now.

                    Those were good. When dude blasted himself w/ that .357 during an arrest, I about shat myself.

                      I wouldn't be surprised if the DOJ subsidizes AMW under the guise of governmental interest.

                        I can't stand John 'Sensationalize' Bunnell, so I only watched maybe two episodes of AMW.

                        Disregard, I have my hosts mixed up.

                            Meh...I'm surprised it's made it this long. I honestly had no idea it was even still on. I won't miss it.

                              Then CourtTV will want subsidies. Then COPS will want subsidies. Then the first 48 will want subsidies. Then Speeders will want subsidies. Then CSI will want subsidies. ....dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!
