Hours of Crime TV Every Week

In addition to COPS and America's Most Wanted airing all the time, it seems that American television viewers have an insatiable desire for the TV crime/cop/detective series.

Previously, I've discussed how it was interesting that cop TV succeeds, where as cop stories in film seem to typically be failures.

And looking at the 2010 Fall Line-up you can't help but notice an interest in this type of story.

You see every network trying to tap into the genre. You see long standing series surviving, and spinning off, and you see networks trying to find another spot for "more of the same" to make the 2010 calendar.

It's not my favorite genre, but with the number of options out there, it apparently is a lot of people's.
