For those of us who back the blue, this is great news!  Cops is an iconic show that’s been on over half of my life.  I remember being shocked at some the disrespect shown to the officers in certain occasions. I liked seeing law enforcement in action and am glad that the over reaction by the progressive left and cancel culture last year is beginning to be reversed.

Watcha’ gonna do? Libs upset that TV show ‘Cops’ is back thanks to Fox Nation


After its year-long hiatus, “Cops” is returning to Fox this fall.

Fox News Media will air the 33rd season of the “documentary reality legal program” on Fox Nation , Fox News’  streaming platform, on October 1st. As part of the return debut, four episodes will be included in the initial release, with additional episodes scheduled for every Friday night.

The long-running favorite was taken off the air by Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV) in 2020, in the wake of the death of George Floyd by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. “Cops” was not the only casualty of the national mood of the moment, with A&E’s “Live PD” also getting yanked from the air. Critics also complained that the show glorified police violence and unfairly portrayed racial minorities.

Among those who hated the show was Deirdre Fishel, director of “Women in Blue,” about women serving on the Minneapolis police force. Fishel called the legacy of Cops “toxic” during an interview with Yahoo Entertainment and said “it showcased a very aggressive approach. To have some young kid watching Cops  and think, ‘Wow, that’s what being a police officer is,’ means you’ll get someone who is attracted to policing because of those interactions.”

Fox Nation president Jason Klarman issued a statement regarding the decision to bring back the long-time crowd-pleaser:


“Cops is one of the most iconic brands on television with an incredibly passionate fan base. We wanted to show our appreciation to all first responders by combining the launch with a free one-year subscription to give back in a small way to those who place their lives on the line every day to keep us safe.”

The popular show has been around since March of 1989 when it originally aired on then-young Fox TV network. It has received four primetime Emmy nominations and earned the American Television Award for best Reality-Based Program in 1993. Fox canceled the show in 2012 after Color of Change agitated in the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death, but it was picked up by what was then Spike TV and continued until caving once again to anti-police sentiment in 2020.

The announcement caused some of the expected hysterics from the left on Twitter:

The Los Angeles Times devoted an entire podcast to discussing the “cruel” 32 seasons of “Cops” and why it was “banished,” and primed its readers to ready the pitchforks in a reminder to get angry for “blowback:”

Others, however, were hoping for a return of other yanked police reality shows like “Live PD.”

The show primarily focuses on city police but has also featured state and federal agencies, along with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, as well as the United States Marshals Service.

As part of the promotion for the returning show, Fox is also offering one free year of Fox Nation service to active first responders such as police, EMS, or firefighters. In addition, Fox has pledged $5 for each new subscription between Monday and September 20th to Answer the Call, an organization dedicated to the financial support of New York City firefighters killed while performing their duties.

I love that this show is back.  What I am not pleased about is that Duck Dynasty is back also.

Me too! I didn’t know that.  I’m not a fan of reality show TV but that was one (Duck Dynasty) I could watch.

That show is to reality like McD's is to 4 star dining.  The father was real, but the kids were yuppies from FL who dressed up as if it were a year long Halloween party.  Dad is a vocal homophobic and putting him back on the air is disgusting.
