Report: Fox Kicking ‘Cops’ to the Curb In Favor of Sports Programming, But Not Cancelling It
Vulture reports that 28 out of the next 32 Saturdays in primetime, Fox will program a variety of sports (baseball, UFC, NASCAR & college football) leaving only four weeks available for Cops between April 14 and December 8.
The report notes Fox insists it isn’t cancelling the show and that it has only reduced its order. No specifics were given on the reduction, though Fox says it isn’t dramatically reducing the order. About the only thing that’s clear is there will be few new episodes of Cops on the air for a while and that Fox has no plans to air the show on any night but Saturdays.
