By the late 2000s, thanks to the success of ''Series/AmericanIdol'', Fox was running neck-and-neck with a now-resurgent CBS for first place in the ratings, eliminating any doubt as to its position on American television. The network is often stereotyped (rightfully or wrongly) for being [[TheFireflyEffect overly trigger-happy]] [[ScrewedByTheNetwork in terms of cancelling shows]], which has been mocked by ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' (itself a victim of this), [[http://www.reallifecomics.com/archive/080226.html among others]]. This was especially {{egregious}} due to some of the shows gaining cult followings long after their cancellation, namely ''Family Guy'', fellow animated sitcom ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', space western ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', and mockumentary-sitcom ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment.'' (The four shows were all eventually revived by FOX themselves, Creator/ComedyCentral, the movie ''Film/{{Serenity}}'', and Creator/{{Netflix}}, respectively.)

(TwentiethCenturyFox had also owned 50% of an early fourth television network attempt, [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTA_Film_Network NTA Film Network]]. Its flagship, New Jersey-based WNTA, later became NET affiliate WNDT, which later became Creator/{{PBS}} affiliate WNET. Its Los Angeles affiliate KTTV became one of Fox's O&Os at its founding in 1986, and is still so as of 2017.)
