    I posted this question a couple weeks back and the response was great. So, without further adieu...

    I have chosen over 200 television series and placed them in a tournament to see which is the cream that rises to the top.

    The criteria: There is no concrete set of criteria but the shows included are primarily weeknight, prime-time shows that don't include talk shows or mini-series. At least 150 episodes is the standard but not the rule.

    And here is the first battle:

    America's Most Wanted

    vs.

    COPS

    vs.

    Unsolved Mysteries

    I was always a bigger fan of Unsolved Mysteries personally, but Cops is always nice for a good laugh now and then. Of the three America's Most Wanted had the most substance, and did more to help society than the other two. Really, all three have their perks, but if you are asking which one I'd rather watch, I'd say Unsolved Mysteries.

    Cops. It's just plain more interesting than the other two. I do have a thing for watching actual busts on film rather that just stories of weird crimes (e.g. Unsolved Mysteries). It's a little more exciting watching an actual person at the exact moment they get arrested, IMO. And some of those people they show on Cops are just plain ****ing thrown off in the head!

    P.S. - AMW is dead. Plus, I'm pretty sure no one ever really looks for the guys they show anyways. Maybe Dawg the Bounty Hunter, but that's it.

    P.P.S. - That P.S. was my attempt at humor. I understand some things I say aren't as funny as I thought they'd be, but, hey, you win some and you lose some.

    I don't really like any of them, but I give AMW and UM more credit because they actually help catch criminals.
