    Default Fox Cancels America's Most Wanted

    http://news.gather.com/viewArticle.a...81474979338192

    Just heard this, shocked the hell out of me that they would cancel something of this magnitude for any reason.

    Fox Cancels 'America's Most Wanted' As Series, John Walsh Is Shopping It Around

    By NELLIE ANDREEVA

    America's Most Wanted, the longest-running program in the history of Fox, will no longer air as a regular series. Fox has canceled the show after 23 years. AMW will keep presence on the network next season via four quarterly two-hour specials. During a conference call this morning, Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly said that "economically, it didn't make sense" to continue the show, which had not made money for a while. Additionally, "for business reasons we want to have a place for repeats," he said. Fox has been the only network to run a schedule of all-original series, with the other Big 3 nets airing encores on Saturday. AMW is produced by Fox TV Stations, and Reilly said the show's host and producer John Walsh is in talks with other divisions of News Corp about ways to continue it elsewhere. So far, AMW has led to the capture of 1,151 fugitives.

    Business is business. If it becomes too expensive to do you stop doing it.

    If Walsh is "shopping" it elsewhere we may see a version of it in the future...maybe not.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    They need to re-do it with a reality show format and concentrate on the Jerry Springer aspects. THen it will rule forever!

    It is unfortunate that it's cancelled. I don't watch it anymore, but the show has done a lot of good over the years

    I'm with you on this one Sarge. I have only watched sporadically over the past 5 years or so, but nobody can argue the immense amount of good that has been done as a result of these stories being televised.

    For years, AMW exposed people and brought them into the spotlight that normally may not have been known about by a lot of people. Without that exposure, you can't help but think that not only will less of these scumbags get caught, but the ones that do get caught will cost considerably more in resources.
