Americaís Most Wanted: America Fights Back - Season 22
Premieres: Saturday, September 6, 2008 at 9:00 p.m.
Creator(s): Lance Heflin (Executive Producer)
Starring: John Walsh (host)
Much like COPS, Americaís Most Wanted has been around forever. The series profiles various wanted in the hopes that viewers will keep an eye out for these dangerous people. The series has lead to the capture of over 1000 criminals. Also, 43 missing children have been reunited with their families.
In the 22ndí season premiere, the episode will feature eight prisoners who escaped from prison in southern New Mexico last August. While four men were caught, the other four are still at large, including one convicted murderer.
I have to say, itís pretty impressive that a TV series (especially one as long-running as this one) continues to have an impact on the pursuit of lawbreakers. Especially considering some of the captured criminals were on the FBIís Most Wanted list. Itís been years since Iíve actually watched the show but I expect that the series continues to draw in steady ratings, considering how long itís been on the air.
