Cops helped establish a network in Fox, it helped create a new genre in reality TV, and is one of the longest running shows still airing. Despite all this, and some decent ratings, Fox thought it time to end the show for good just after finishing its 25th season this past Sunday. However don't worry if you're a fan of watching police officers arrest men without shirts. Spike TV, a subsidiary of Viacom, will pick up season 26th which will air later this year and comes to Spike with some of Cops back library of episodes.
This was already a long time coming for Cops after America's Most Wanted, a longtime time slot companion of Cops, was cancelled the show stood out in the Sunday time slot. Maybe the show can see a bit more life on Spike before finally kicking the bucket for sure.
