For the past two decades, escaped criminals and wanted fugitives have dreaded the moment 'America's Most Wanted' host John Walsh might target them. But now they'll have to face an even higher authority: the President of the United States.

Yes, according to The Hollywood Reporter, President Barack Obama himself will be making an unusual guest appearance on 'America's Most Wanted' as part of the show's efforts to mark their 1,000th episode. The series, which debuted in 1988, is credited with helping corral over 1,100 fugitives from justice as well as the rescue of 43 missing children.For the past two decades, escaped criminals and wanted fugitives have dreaded the moment 'America's Most Wanted' host John Walsh might target them.

Yes, according to The Hollywood Reporter, President Barack Obama himself will be making an unusual guest appearance on 'America's Most Wanted' as part of the show's efforts to mark their 1,000th episode. The series, which debuted in 1988, is credited with helping corral over 1,100 fugitives from justice as well as the rescue of 43 missing children.

Those efforts will be lauded by the President this Saturday, when the show's landmark special is set to air at 9PM ET on Fox. In addition to discussing the impact of the series, President Obama will also detail his administration's efforts to crack down on crime in all of its many forms.

Those forms, of course, are all too well known to Walsh, who has acted as the show's host since its inception. In 1981, his son Adam was abducted and killed, leading Walsh to become a dedicated activist against crime. Now his efforts will be recognized on the largest stage possible.

Here's a sneak peek at the 1,000th episode:
