3/11/1989 Cops premieres

March 11, 1989.  Cops on Fox is one of the longest-running shows in TV history, and an early example of reality television.  My favorite moment was in an episode in New Orleans when a shoplifting suspect, leaving the store to find the police and a camera crew waiting for him, gave the Nazi salute.  A disgusted officer asked: "Did your mother have any children who lived?"


  1. Remember when "X-Files" did their version of "Cops?"

  2. I did not see that but i remember an episode of My Name Is Earl in which an entire episode of Cops consisted of stuff done by regulars on the show. Hilarious.
