It's a game of cops vs. crooks! Each week on this reality competition, a team of two (brothers, in the premiere) hides a briefcase holding $100,000, and two actual detectives work to crack the location. After 48 hours, possessor takes all! Run offers vicarious cat-and-mouse thrills, but knowing it's make-believe -- especially the "interrogation" -- robs some of the tension. (ABC, 9 P.M.)
