‘Cops’ Finds New Home on Spike TV

Cabler will keep 'Cops' in its Saturday 8 p.m. timeslot

The bad boys are heading to Spike.

Television’s longest running series “Cops” is moving from Fox to Spike TV with new episodes this September. Fox cancelled the program, and the 25th season of the law enforcement reality show will end its run on the broadcast net this month before beginning its 26th season on Spike in the fall.

Program will stick with its long-standing timeslot of Saturday night at 8 p.m. as it transitions to cable.

“’Cops’ is a remarkable series that has been able to sustain strong ratings well into its third decade, a monumental achievement in television,” said Kevin Kay, prexy of Spike. “As we continue to grow and expand our audience, new episodes of ‘Cops’” with its loyal audience of Adults 18-49, is the perfect addition to our primetime lineup on Saturday nights.”

Series creator John Langley adde: “After 25 seasons with Fox, we are delighted to find our new home with the Spike family where we previously aired ‘Undercover Stings.’ And we are doubly pleased that our Cops timeslot remains Saturday nights for our fans.”
“Cops” debuted in March 1989 and has since aired over 900 episodes. Show is produced by Langley Prods.
