File this under ‘Booooo!!!’
After 23 years on the air, Fox has decided to cancel the one and only America’s Most Wanted, replacing it with reruns. The show has profiled – and led to the capture of – hundreds and hundreds of criminals and fugitives since 1988 (as of Monday, the count stood at 1,151 according the official AMW website).
While the regular Saturday night time slot will be filled by reruns of dramas aired earlier in the week, Fox executive are assuring the TV viewing public that there will be four, 2-hour America’s Most Wanted specials next season.
