a few months. But he bombed and struggled in comedy

job. After six years, Fallon left to pursue a film

7-8pm -- CITY CONFIDENTIAL® - Boise, ID: Last Dance.
The center of Idaho's potato empire, there's nothing
bland about this Northwestern town. Spud money has
given Boise a sprinkling of big-city sophistication
and a dollop of crime. Like in 1995, when Boise got

7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - The Wells Fargo Heist 
On the surface it looked like the perfect crime, the
daring daylight heist of an armored van carrying over
half a million dollars in cash. AMERICAN JUSTICE: THE
WELLS FARGO HEIST recalls that the van went missing at
a crowded Phoenix-area mall the Monday after
Thanksgiving 1994. When police finally located it, the
driver had been shot dead and the money was long gone.
With no eyewitnesses, fingerprints or DNA evidence,
police would have to rely on their own cunning to
solve the crime. Eventually three suspects emerged –
two bounty hunters and an ex-cop: Timothy Ring, James
Greenham and Bill Ferguson. The men were intimately
familiar with police investigations and not easy to
catch. With the help of the FBI, police began a
24-hour surveillance. The suspects’ phones were tapped
and their every move watched. Soon an elaborate
cat-and-mouse game ensued, with investigators
patiently waiting for the three men to falter.
AMERICAN JUSTICE: THE WELLS FARGO HEIST reports that
police finally made an arrest and discovered a duffel
bag containing over $271,000 in cash in the garage of
Timothy Ring. Ring claimed the money came from the
government and that he was an international bounty
hunter on the FBI payroll. The show includes the

it or not, but the real target of her anger is the
boys' irresponsible father. Luigi, a friend of the
family, arrives to give an estimate on fixing the pool
and, in the process, unwittingly insults Victoria for
her recent weight gain. Another argument breaks out
between Victoria and Frankie due to his use of the ATV
on the street near the Gotti home, but a much more
serious altercation occurs between Carmine and his
mother. Carmine wants to attend a two day prom
after-party, but Victoria won’t let him go. She
eventually breaks down in tears and expresses her wish
that her father were still alive to discipline the
kids as only a man could. The kids throw a surprise
