The Fox Broadcasting Company, commonly referred to as the Fox network or simply Fox, is an American commercial broadcasting television network owned by the Fox Corporation.[1] Though it was officially launched on October 9, 1986,[2] Fox began its official primetime setup on April 5, 1987, with the series Married... with Children and The Tracey Ullman Show airing that night.[3][4]

As of October 2012, Fox maintains 19.5-hours of programming per week. The animated comedy series The Simpsons is one of Fox's most popular shows,[3] becoming the network's first series to rank among the top 30-highest-rated shows of a television season after its original debut,[5] and is the longest running sitcom, as well as animated series, of all time, contributing to the channel's success.[2] According to Lanford Beard of Entertainment Weekly, "The Simpsons turned Fox from the little network that could into the little network that could not be ignored."[2] The science fiction television series The X-Files also contributed to the network's success, which led to two spin-offs Millennium and The Lone Gunmen.[6][7] Fox began airing in high-definition on September 12, 2004, with a series of National Football League (NFL) American football games. Fox had a programming block for children titled Fox Kids, which ran from September 8, 1990 to September 7, 2002.[8]

Unlike the "three larger networks", which aired primetime programming from 8 to 11 p.m. (EST) Mondays to Saturdays and 7 to 11 p.m. (EST) Sundays, Fox has traditionally avoided programming in the 10 p.m. (EST) time interval, leaving that hour to affiliates to program locally.[9] On April 21, 2012, Fox celebrated its 25th-anniversary, with a two-hour television special featuring people related to Fox and its shows. It presented Fox's programs 24, American Idol, Cops, Family Guy, Married... with Children, The Simpsons, and The X-Files, among other programs.[2] The network's adult cartoons are listed under the Animation Domination banner, which is a Sunday night programming block.[10][11] Fox is a full member of the North American Broadcasters Association (NABA) and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB).[12][13]
