Dan Abrams and Tom Morris Jr of Live PD A&E TV Show

Live PD has become one of the most popular cable shows on TV. This Friday night “cop show” guides viewers through the night, giving insight to what audiences see in real time (via a mix of dash cams, fixed rig and handheld cameras), bouncing minute-by-minute between the featured police departments and offering an inside look at each live incident (source). The hosts of this show are Dan Abrams and Tom Morris, Jr.

The popularity of this show is very similar to America’s Most Wanted that was hosted by John Walsh years ago. It is a little bit different, but America is always interested in a good police chase of figuring out how to find the bad guy.

To find out more about Dan Abrams you can follow his Twitter here. Now that Mr. Abrams has worked for ABC for several years but his popularity is growing now that he is hosting Live PD on A&E.

In 1993 Tom Morris, Jr joined America’s Most Wanted as a segment producer and three years later made his on-air debut as a reporter, profiling — and ultimately helping capture — criminals. In addition to his America’s Most Wanted duties, Morris has appeared on numerous shows, including CNN Showbiz Tonight, Fox & Friends and Entertainment Tonight, and he has contributed his opinions as a versatile host on XM Satellite Radio’s popular series, The Capital Hill Blues (source).

Is this show as good as America’s Most Wanted? Is it better?

New episodes begin on Friday, July 7th, 2017 and it looks as if fans will get to see the best of the show throughout the summer.

This is Sept. 8, 2017. We’ve been watching reruns now for quite some time on A&E. When will you start showing new programs? So far each Friday and Saturday we see all reruns.

Hi Dan and Tom. I have a comment that you probably will not like. While I understand that every job is open to male and female, I absolutely find that this particular job of a police officer is best suited for a man. Sorry ladies. I’ve been watching the shows and find that the men can handle the suspects so much better than the women. I don’t see the woman doing to much. It looks to me like even if a woman pulls over a car, that not far behind is a man to help. As a woman myself, if… Read more »

I have noticed that when officers approach a car on a traffic stop they always touch the left or right rear corner of the vehicle before approaching the door, what is the purpose of this action.

Tom Morris- you need to be corrected! On a show last year- a lady was dragging her feet with a woman Officer from Utah- I think. She claimed her dog was diabetic & you said “dogs can’t get diabetes!” Oh yes they can & just like in humans it can be deadly. What prompted me to comment tonight 1/4/19, a man called the police saying his girlfriend hit him. The police were professional but YOU WERE NOT! I get it- he’s a big guy, half drunk, saying his girlfriend whipped him. As the show was going into commercial, you made… Read more »
