Which TV Show Was Just Canceled — For the Third Time — After 25 Years?
America's Most Wanted is no longer wanted by Lifetime.
According to TV Guide Magazine, the cable network is done with AMW, after airing 44 episodes and 36 captures. The final episode aired October 12, and only averaged 807,000 viewers.
America's Most Wanted started in 1988 on FOX and reportedly helped law enforcement capture 1,202 fugitives around the world.
The show looks like it's ending after 25 seasons, but we've been here before. As TV Guide notes, the show was canceled twice before by FOX — in 2011 and briefly in 1996. So who knows, maybe it will be revived again on a different network.
