FOX

Fox, or FOX, refers to one of the four major networks, with the other three being ABC, NBC, and CBS. FOX rose to prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s on the backs of two key sitcoms — Married with Children and The Simpsons. The network has since expanded its coverage to include professional sports, including the National Football League (NFL), as well as many more original series. The current slate of shows popular on FOX include Sleepy Hollow, Bones, and Empire. When referred to as FOX, the main network is the likely connotation, but Fox Broadcasting owns a variety of other stations, including FOXSports and FOX News. The company was founded in 1985 by Rupert Murdoch and Barry Diller.
