I love watching the show but would hate to be the subject of an episode. It would be so embarrassing. I always watch it while wondering if the victim knew they were going to end up on a TV show and have their whole life summarized in one episode, trivializing it.
Do you ever worry you might end up on 48 Hour Mysteries?

The OP also worries about what to do if he wins the lottery and if he gets elected King of England.

I just want to be sure I get a good title, like "Hunk Homicide."

It's almost always about some spouse killing another spouse. Obviously they've found a successful format. But why the viewer's obsession with this subject? Is it their deepest, darkest fear? Then why be married at all?

Last night's episode, with the two friends convicted of killing one's husband, was pretty lame, and I don't just mean the prosecutor's case.

I used to work for someone whose wife had him murdered. He was featured in 48 Hours, Prime Time Live and 20/20. They also did a Lifetime movie about it too. Strangely enough they actually didn't tell any of his secrets/ faults or they barely glanced over them. They just came down hard on the wife and her boyfriend who were crazy.

Most of the time the victim is dead. No need to die of embarrassment. It works out quite well for them.

It would be much more interesting if the odd person were actually acquitted.

Which case R8? He's dead. He won't mind if you tell.

It's such a lame show. It takes a case that can be summed up in one paragraph and stretches it out to a full hour with innumerable commercials. In fact, the show itself seems to be something that pops up a few times during an hour of commercials.

I'd only be embarrassed because CBS would repeat the episode 4,783 times.
Other than that, I'm dead ... what do I care ?

What r13 said. They cut to a commercial then repeat most of what they already said. After five minutes of new material they cut to another commercial.

I don't worry about it, no.
Then again I have no weapons in the house and I'm not white trash either at heart or in practice.

It appears SOMEBODY wasn't happy with R16. Could that somebody be a MURDERER? Weeeeee'll find out! After 17 commercials.
Well, we're back. Remember R16? Said he wasn't white trash. Didn't keep any weapons in the house. Could that lack of weapons have been a .... fatal flaw? Stay tuned right here because when we return from these commercial breaks, we're going to repeat everything we've already said ....

I'm a real freak so it would make for good TV. I'm guessing one of my tricks that I do s&m shit with may have murdered me and dumped the body somewhere on the outskirts of the city. Everyone would talk about how I fucked or sucked them. Love it!

Dateline with the increasingly creepy-headef Keith Morrison is worse.

Dateline is the campiest, with Keith Morrison's overwrought narration

Actually, I am just one eruption away from my own episode of Snapped for killing that fake foreign-born girl clown. Their will be video and Ryan Seacrest will be covered in blood splatter from the 'nicks'.

You've just described House Hunters.
