'America's Most Wanted' Moves to Lifetime

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 7th 2011 6:05AM
John WalshFans of 'America's Most Wanted' can rest easy. Host John Walsh has come through on his promise to find a new home for the weekly series after it was cancelled by Fox back in May. Later this year the veteran law-enforcement show will launch its 25th season on ... Lifetime.

It sounds like an odd pairing, but the two may not be as mismatched as first appears. Earlier this summer, Lifetime President and General Manager Nancy Dubuc spoke of the network's new push to embrace the contemporary woman.

And, according to Deadline, although the series seems very macho and guy-oriented on the surface, if you dig a little deeper you find that it's actually female-skewing because of its "wish-fulfillment element that justice will be served."

In a statement announcing the move, Dubuc said "'America's Most Wanted' is a seminal program that provides a very valuable service to both viewers and law enforcement agencies. For more than two decades John Walsh has been leading the fight against crime and it's an honor to partner with him on bringing back this important show."

'Regis and Kelly' Help Take Down a Criminal

Regis and Kelly helped John Walsh bring down a wanted killer.
Sometimes morning TV can be more than perky weather girls and middle-aged anchors with over-sized coffee mugs.

One of the U.S. Marshal's most wanted criminals is now in custody thanks to the unlikely partnership of Regis Philbin, Kelly Ripa and John Walsh.

Just a week after being added to the U.S. Marshals 15 Most Wanted list and one day before his case was to be profiled nationally on FOX's 'America's Most Wanted,' former state corrections officer Albert James Turner, Jr. is now in custody.

Walsh visited 'Live with Regis and Kelly' Friday morning to discuss the 1,000th episode of the long-running true crime show and his interview with President Obama. He previewed the upcoming cases Friday morning, and the right person was watching.

As a U.S. Marshal's press release states, "a viewer tip led to Turner's arrest this morning at a mall in Concord, N.C. He was taken into custody without incident."

President Obama Sits Down for Interview on 'America's Most Wanted's' 1,000th Episode

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 5th 2010 6:02PM
Few very shows have had the distinction of saying they made it to the 1,000 episode threshold. Even fewer can say they got to sit down with a sitting president. Now 'America's Most Wanted' has both.

The show's creator and host John Walsh scored a visit with President Barack Obama at the White House. Here's a sneak preview. You can watch the full interview when it airs at 9 p.m. Eastern Saturday on Fox.

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.
