America's Most Wanted

Cancelled
On Air: 
Network: Lifetime
 

The show's purpose is to assist law enforcement in the apprehension of fugitives wanted for various crimes including murder, white collar crime, terrorism, and many more.

America's Most Wanted is the longest-running TV series in the history of the FOX network, with its first episode airing in 1988. The show has helped capture over 1000 fugitives and recover over 50 missing persons.

One of the shows that is credited for bringing reality television to mainstream, the idea for it came from other reality crime shows in the 60s and 80s. The show was canceled for a month and a half in the fall of 1996 but returned after protests from the public and law enforcement.

The show often profiles criminals who are currently on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. The toll-free-hotline number to report any tips on any case featured on the show is 1-800-CRIME-TV (1-800-274-6388).

I agree with most of the comments here. As stated by others the great thing about this show is it raised awareness, help catch lots of criminals. And as somebody else stated even if it ran ounce a month that would be better then nothing. I felt a whole lot safer when this show was running. Who wouldn't want to know if the criminal that moved in next door was in fact a criminal.

I hate that this show is off the air. Especially considering all the crap that's on TV. Please Fox or someone, put it back on the air. Even once a month would be better than nothing.

It's a damn shame to see this show cancelled TWICE. I consider this show to be an important news program that raises awareness of not only criminals, but also missing adults and children. Even the website is going to pot. I wish that Fox, HLN, or someone would somehow take this show back.

Everyone who loved AMW should tell Mr. Walsh he sould get his own tv station, I'm sure all the fans will help him pay for it with small donations. Just think every fan sends $100 am month, that would be Millions every month Thank about it Robert Greene
