America's Most Wanted

Show Summary

America's Most Wanted is not only the longest-running TV series in the history of the FOX network but the eighth-longest running prime time network show ever and credited for bringing reality television to mainstream. The idea for the show came from other reality crime shows in the 60s and 80s. By the summer of 1987, FOX executive Stephen Chao and Executive Producer Michael Linder had the idea for America's Most Wanted. It premiered on February 7, 1988 and within four days of the first broadcast convicted killer David James Roberts was captured. The show was canceled for a month and a half in the fall of 1996 but returned after protests from the public, law enforcement, government officials and low ratings for the shows replacing America's Most Wanted.

Now in it's 22nd season, America's Most Wanted has captured 1057 fugitives and recovered 59 missing persons. 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).

    The host is a good public speaker. Also, this is one of those shows that keeps me on my toes because IT IS REAL. There are criminals that exist and it's to keep us citizens safer. There is a lot of action and emotion in these episodes. I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in criminal justice.
  • This info needs to be past onto John Walsh if at all possible.This very disturbing video that involves an 18 year old male luring a 14 year old girl to a hotel.moreless

    Gradually talking her into sex and eventually ends up beating her to death,but first smothering her by placing a pillow over her face while he finishes his sex act with her.

    The movie link is at www.movieforumz.com and the title of the movie is called Amateur Porn Star Killer (2007),there are a total of 4 links for this video. The disturbing images in the middle and the end are so real that makes me believe this is the real deal.You may have to view each movie listed on each page,but it is there.It was said he wasn't caught yet so I hope some one finds him.moreless
