I'm not surprised with this.


It was only a matter of time. 

I say good riddance.

Never got the appeal to begin with.

Should have been cancelled ages ago.

I remember it only from way way back when it was a new show and Fox had a lot of comedy shows like Tracy Ullman, Gary Shandling, In Living Color and Married With Children I would watch. Sometimes I just wanted to hear the reggae theme music and would flip off to find something else after that. It definitely has been a major warper of real reality for many people I think, another is that so-called reality show The Apprentice (with the money money money theme) where Donald Trump was a fantasy hands-on business genius. Right now I see 'reality' next to a title and I react rather badly (besides wondering who watches all this junk with people over-reacting to new counter tops and whatever else like 'feeling' something in a dark room). Many countries have their own versions of COPS, I ran across one on a German channel recently, and there are variations still going with border guards. Like all the programs on sharks they kept getting ratings for a low cost, but maybe this flagship one finally going away will be a turning point?

There is a podcast Running From the Cops by Dan Taberski... same guy who
did Missing Richard Simmons.

It was a for all intents and purposes a propaganda show for the police. The
police departments that did the show had full creative and editorial control
over the show.

Even if you hate the show COPS ( I Preferred America's Most Wanted over
COPS) the podcast is great. Gets into the legality of the show, racial profiling
the fact that often they didn't get releases to use people's images for the show
or promising reduced sentences if they did sign releases.

Never cared for COPS, but did recently start getting into Live PD on A&E. 
I thought it was actually pretty good PR for police agencies, showing different types of calls besides the total trainwrecks that COPS liked to show (from my rare viewings). And in an age where bodycamsfor cops are being called for, seemed more relevant than ever.
Now, Chase from Paw Patrol? Never really cared for him.

Why anyone would want to be on the show was always beyond me.
