When most people think about reality TV series that have been around
for awhile, shows like Survivor, Big Brother and Amazing Race spring to
mind. However, there is another reality series that has been around
for much longer and is still running.
It’s hard to believe but Cops actually premiered on FOX way back in 1989. Now in its 20th season, Cops will be airing its special 700th episode tonight. Not only is Cops one of the longest running reality series but it is also one of the longest-running primetime entertainment programs period.
The series deserves credit for helping to launch the real life reality genre with its video vÃƒritÃƒ style. Cops cameras have filmed in over 140 U.S. cities and captured over 2,000 arrests.
Cops 700th episode special edition airs on Saturday, November 10 from 8:00PM to 8:30 PM ET/PT on FOX.
