Creator: FX
FX (short for Fox Extended) is the cable branch of the FOX network. Although its operations are totally separate from Fox, it shares that network's aptitude for experimentation and is regarded as a network on par with HBO and Showtime, consistently producing critically-acclaimed series with major crossover appeal.

FX took pride in its early adoption of the internet to interact with viewers, but spent the 1990s running old movies and television shows. Its first foray into original scripted programming was The Shield in 2002, which turned out to be a critical and commercial hit, winning a number of Emmys, Golden Globes, and other awards.

FX is notable for being led by executives who are actual television lovers, who give notes that can actually make the show better. It is also famous for mostly producing comedies and dramas that revolve around anti-heroes. This became such a prominent theme that then-network president Kevin Reilly once turned down a new show because it featured yet another anti-hero,note  although they appear to have given up that fight.

FX's comedy shows moved to their own channel called FXX.
