The Fox Broadcasting Company (usually referred to as FOX) is a real-world television channel that launched in 1986 by 20th Century Fox and News Corporation. The show was the home of the former Tracey Ullman Show, the show that hosted the first The Simpsons shorts. FOX quickly became one of the most popular network television channels. In 1989, FOX gave The Simpsons a prime-time timeslot. The channel was not included in the Disney acquisition of 20th Century Fox in 2019, as the Federal Communications Commission prohibits a company from owning multiple of the big four network channels, which includes National Broadcasting Company (NBC), American Broadcasting Company (ABC), Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), and FOX, with Disney owning ABC.

In The Simpsons, Fox is characterized as being a horrible channel with varying levels of success between episodes. At one point Rupert Murdoch doubled as Marge's hair stylist. Characters who speak about Fox often look revolted while doing so, such as Krusty when he went to the channel to get his Barmitvah on air and every other channel turned him down. During that same meeting they talked about what viewers want nowadays, listing several terrible ideas as good and naming several show themes that are popular and bad. In the show, the family watches TV on this network in a few episodes. Moe Szyslak isn't allowed to show it in his bar anymore after getting fired from American Idol. It is also revealed that Fox does not care if its employees made money as long as the company itself made money[1].
