I was shocked that Lifetime cancelled America’s Most Wanted after 25 years. When it moved from Fox two years ago, it had poor ratings with under a million viewers.
America’s Most Wanted was hosted by John Walsh, the father of Adam Walsh, the 6-year-old boy who was abducted from the Sears at the Hollywood Mall in 1981. The show has helped lead to the capture of more than 1,100 fugitives in the United States and 30 other countries.
I think America’s Most Wanted has a good chance of being picked up by another network, such as truTV, which also features some crime shows. It might not only feature a new host, but it could also help boost ratings.
