For 23 years, AMERICA'S MOST WANTED was a fixture on the network although the program wasn't a money maker for FOX . It was mainly pleas for sheriffs and other law enforcement officials that kept the show on the air. Now FOX has decided to cancel regular weekly episodes of the true life crime show hosted by John Walsh, and replace it with other programming such as NASCAR racing and sports. But, AMERICA'S MOST WANTED will air a few specials once in a while to satisfy fans of the show and law enforcement officials who will regret the end of the regular series.
Strangely, AMERICA's MOST WANTED was always a favorite among many in jails in prisons as well, many of the prisoners deeply disgusted with the crimes that some commit as any other citizens might be.
