TV viewers have helped make FOX a ratings superstar. FOX Broadcasting operates the #2 broadcast television network in the US (behind CBS ). It has more than 200 affiliate stations, including 17 company-owned TV outlets, that reach 99% of all US television households. The network offers prime time shows along with its longstanding Sunday night lineup of comedy animation programs The Simpsons , Family Guy , The Cleveland Show , and American Dad . Launched with only six stations in 1986, FOX is a major subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch's Twenty-First Century Fox (formerly News Corporation).
