    This article is very slanted and biased, but I can't disagree with this:

    I've seen a lot of examples of things that officers should be fired for, if not arrested and charged.

    900/48=18 and 3/4 days of continuous cops without a repeat episode.

    Perhaps they ought to create a continuous COPS channels and license it for continuous viewing in the correctional institutions.

    Correction: According to http://epguides.com/Cops/, there are 884 episodes of COPS. Thats still 18.41 days of continuous COPS.

    Thought they already had a Cops channel, called G4.

    Wonder if we can blame Cops for starting this whole cheap to produce reality TV crap, never realized it started in '89. I can't really think of anything earlier but then again I was 8 when it started and didn't even get all of the now big 4, let alone cable.

    Primetime show for Fox, and probably some of the lowest production costs of any show on a major network. Staggering how much money they made off that, ad rates are based on viewership, not production costs, afterall.

    An American Family, from 1973, was really the first reality show in the sense we know it today.
