30 seasons. The show has been on for 30 seasons and nearly 30 years (28).

I could barely stand it for 30 minutes. (Which is the length of an episode.)

What was the appeal of this show? Did you watch it? It is arguably the most successful reality TV show of all time. And deserves the term "reality" quite a bit more than many others of the genre.

Here's the Wikipedia article:

I didn't know it was still on either. I always liked Cops. It was never a show that I would seek out but it was usually entertaining enough when nothing else was on. I think in today's world of on demand viewing such shows are shunted off to the sidelines and not as interesting as they used to be.
