The First 48 TV Show

 The First 48 TV Show is a reality program on the A & E channel.  This is currently my second favorite show on television, besides Seinfeld of course.  The First 48 is a REAL version of those fictional CSI shows.  The name of the show is derived from the saying, "if detectives don't receive a lead within the first 48 hours, the likelihood of solving the murder is cut in half." 

This show is actually quite graphic in regards to showing the actual bodies of victims, etc.  The real time interviews with witnesses, family, potential killers, is truly riveting.  It literally keeps me on the edge of my seat.  The program airs at all hours of the day, the schedule can be found at this link here.  

Other reality crime shows that are also awesome include Cold Case Files and Forensic Files, which both happen to air on A&E.  48 Hour Mystery, which airs on CBS on Saturday nights at 10p.m., is more of a dramatic/story telling program on missing persons, mysterious deaths, etc. If you're interested in crime scene and mystery programs, you can't do wrong with any of the four I mentioned.
