Being a police officer is a dangerous job. Filming them sadly is too. A cameraman for Cops was shot during a confrontation between authorities and an armed robbery suspect on Tuesday night, and tragically, the cameraman died from his injuries.
Back in March, we came up with a list of shows you may not have realized were still on the air. Cops was at the top of our list. The cop-focused unscripted series dates back to the 80s, long before the reality TV genre blew up. Cops has stood the test of time, outliving numerous other shows at FOX, but its run on the network has come to an end, truly marking the end of an era - but not the end of the series. Spike TV has swooped in to rescue the show.
Often times, if a TV series is fortunate, it will air, gain extraordinary popularity, which eventually fizzles and the show airs a couple of lower-rated seasons before it's inevitably cancelled. It may live on through reruns, Netflix or in the hearts and minds of nostalgic pop culture lovers. And then there are the shows that just keep going and going (and going.) At one point in time, everyone was talking about Jerry Springer or that funny home video show with the guy from Full House.
Fox released their Fall 2011 Primetime TV schedule, which includes the Emmy Awards, the return of Glee, Raising Hope, and Fringe, and the series premieres of Terra Nova, X Factor, and New Girl. Changes to the schedule for returning shows appear to be minimal.
Weíre at the midway point of August and while that might mean the countdown to cooler weather and the return to school or work has already begun for some, it also means weíre just a few weeks away from the start of the new TV season. Up ahead is the primetime schedule for the Fall 2010 season.
Fox released their Fall 2010 TV lineup, as well as some exciting news about Glee that fans will definitely want to know about! Read on for the schedule, which introduces some new series to the network.
I remember when Cops first premiered on FOX. It was unlike anything else on television. Ratings still steady after more than two decades, FOX has renewed the show for an impressive 23rd season
Fox posted their fall primetime premiere dates today. The line-up starts with September 12 premieres for Cops and Americaís Most Wanted and closes out with a late premiere for Wanda Sykesí new late night show.
While 2010 seems a bit far off right now, itís not too soon for the networks to start planning for midseason. Fox posted their 2010 midseason schedule, which of course, includes American Idol and 24, as well as a few new shows, including Past Life, Human Target and Sons of Tucson.
Today Fox announced their upcoming lineups and itís good news (officially) for Dollhouse! The series will return to Friday nights this fall. Also set to make its return in the fall is So You Think You Can Dance.
COPS has been around forever. Some would even consider it to be the original reality show. I was vaguely aware that it was still on the air but I think the last time I watched it was some time back in the Ď90ís. I donít have anything against the series personally and I do hold the various law enforcement agencies featured in this show in high regard.
When it comes to Foxís fall schedule, Iím not sure what Iím more excited about. On one hand, theyíve got some new shows coming out this fall, including the new J.J. Abrams series, Fringe, and on the other hand, there are quite a few returning series that Iím looking forward to, including House, Bones and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Between their fall schedule, which includes the new J.J. Abrams series, Fringe and their midseason line-up, which not only includes the return of 24 (oh, Jack Bauer, how weíve missed you!) but also the new Joss Whedon series, Dollhouse, the futureís looking bright for Fox.
