    America's Most Wanted Cancelled After 23 Years

    America's Most Wanted has been cancelled on Fox after 23 years of busting the bad guys. Aside from the LE ass-kissing which went a little too far in recent years I liked the show. I thought John Walsh did the show straight from his heart instead of because of the money.
    The show seemed well done and its Saturday night time slot a natural for the old-geezer-at home-with-the-doors-bolted-and-gun-on-the-coffee-table set confirming his opinion about the diminishing state of society, but I guess I've been one of them since the late '80's, sans the gun and the door bolt. Will you miss the show? Do you think it went downhill? It did seem to overuse the "hero" term.

    I guess since they just killed America's Most Wanted, there was no more need for the show to continue its run.

    America's Most Wanted should be gone forever, I'm glad for that, because it helped to stop only the poor criminals and sent them to court, but it refused to hunt down the biggest criminal of America : ''George W. Bush'' who has killed 2 millions innocents women and children in Middle East. Everybody know Bush is a most murder man in this 21 century still free in America, then what it has served America's most wanted continue to exist ? even if all of criminals of America were been arrested thanks to America's most wanted, but it is not worth with an only murder Bush be arreted.

    Holy sh*t clavie, your becoming quite the revolutionary these days..
    I think its safe to say that yes bush has commited crimes of war, but he's a puppet who acted in the best interest of his country, and their gun toting/n.r.a supporting/republican citizens.. Its not like he gave the green light to knock down the towers and cause a war on terror..In his eyes all this was real..
    He spent so much time on his ranch, that he probably never even doubted a thing..?
    Americas most wanted was a tv show.. Not some vigilante group targeting crooked politicians..Why would they even mention bush?
    all in all.. They did actually help catch many wanted criminals.. The undertones of the show meant to put its public in a constant state of fear is the only way to sell tv nowadays in america..It wasnt intentional.

    Couldn't have said it better myself, he's probably sitting at his ranch right now sipping a beer with Bin Laden who has packed away his costume and is waiting for his next assignment.

    After all those year and all those programs, they only caught 1151 criminals. That seems very low considering that they were aired internationally.

    Well at least the show captured some bad fuckers like Bambi in Thunder Bay, amongst others. Considering most shows are total chewing gum for the brain at least this one did some good.
