Fox (styled as FOX, as though the letters stood for something, even the X) is America's #1 television station. Run on the tyranny model by Australian billionaire Rupert Murdoch, it consists primarily of crude adult live-action/animated sitcoms, conservative-slanted news amidst a sea of liberal news, medical dramas, cooking and dancing shows, and a litany of cancelled programs.

edit Programming

Fox is notorious for cancelling many of its own shows, due to executives purposefully pre-empting their own shows in favor of mindless sports said shows being so meteorically popular that they spontaneously combust into cancellation before they even air. The manic cancellations tend to lower the audience somewhat, to which Fox's recommendation is, "Just buy the DVD box set. In fact, you better buy three or four, just to be safe."

Fox is known for its "edgy" television, which is much more HARD-HITTING and EXPLOSIVE than any other television network. In fact, its slogan has been recently changed to "Go Fox yourself", from "Fair and balanced". This results in damaged Nielsen boxes, which distort Big Brother's ability to report accurate ratings. Thus, shows receive negative ratings at their peak in popularity. Fox has no plans to fix this, as its HARDCORE EDGE allows it to dominate television year after year (and when it doesn't, it can always show Independence Day).

edit Controversy and political slant

Back in the day, social conservatives and the religious right hated Murdoch for his (at first) "sleazy" television programs on primetime slots in the early days of Fox. In the mid-1990s, Murdoch got to meet one concerned Michigan housewife, who wrote to Fox that she hated Married...with Children and The Simpsons for being too vulgar and sexually explicit.

Shortly after this meeting, Fox set up their own right-wing news channel, Fox News, and the housewife and the whole right-wing changed their minds about Murdoch and his television network niche. Indeed, if it weren't for Fox network's sleaziness, you wouldn't have Fox News to fairly-and-balancedly cater to the same people who once jeered at Murdoch's media enterprise.

For those without comedic tastes, the "questionable parody" of this website called Wikipedia have an article about Fox (TV network).

In 1994, Fox created FX (pronounced: Fox-Two), an even edgier network that allows the word "shit" and mild nudity; it can't get much edgier than that. In 2013, Fox launched a clone of FX, imaginatively branded "FXX", mostly known for airing all-day Simpsons marathons.
