It's not the first time it was cancelled. It was cancelled back in the 90s, they brought it back after law enforcement complained.

It will be back somewhere. I can't imagine that it has very high costs and that the public will just let it go.

I am speechless, so fox has decided to cut off the fugitive poster for the world.

Hey guys at Fox, move it first to watch the audience participation move.

Or HLN. They've given up on news and are just running gossip and tabloid stuff now with a few TRU-TV rejects on the weekends.

It's only being cancelled "as a series". They will still have specials on FOX.

I thought I remembered that! AMW was one of my favorite shows for a number of years and am sad to see it go. With a strong enough push again from law enforcement and John Walsh, Fox might reconsider their decision.

Yep,
This has all happened before. Hopefully history will repeat itself. This show has become the post office wanted poster for viewers. It is like cancelling the evening news.

"America's Most Wanted was also cancelled in 1996 but was put back on the air after governors and law-enforcement from 37 states expressed their outrage."

Well John was very graceful in his ending tonight. No sad words and no finality to the show. Allows for Fox to pick the ball back up again without any egg on their face. Very professional of him.

I guess they'll be able to keep the studio set up then in the Crime Museum then.

It is too real for tru tv. What were the ratings? I am guessing bad but might not have had much cost at all.

I was thinking production costs wouldn't be that high, mostly in doing the recreations. But reruns don't work for it, and I don't know what Walsh was paid. I always figured it wasn't about the money considering his history. But it was losing money at Fox.
