Why the hell am I finding this out from Conan O'Brien?

"America's Most Wanted" canceled after 23 years on the air


    (CBS/AP) NEW YORK - After 23 years on the air, "America's Most Wanted," the Saturday night show that has profiled criminals on the lam since 1988, has been canned.

    Fox announced the cancellation Monday and will be replacing the show on the network's regular schedule with reruns.

    Fox said it would do four, two-hour "America's Most Wanted" specials next season, but it will no longer be a regular fixture on the network schedule.


One of my biggest memories of AMW was that they were WAY ahead of the Osama Bin Laden curve before he was ever a blip on anyone else's radar. I think they profiled him way back in '98.

Yes, let's get THIS show off the air! Gotta make time for more TMZ!

Yes it was... and it was a huge campaign, spearheaded by law enforcement, victims advocates groups, pretty much everyone but the criminals.

I don't see how they can cancel it, it's like cancelling the evening news... it's a permanent fixture, and unless John Walsh decided that it was over, I don't think it should end..

It isn't like it costs anything to produce. It is John Walsh and police footage.
