Funny thing is that FX, the FOX cable channel has some of the best programming around. It's current hit is "The Americans" about KGB spies during the 1980s in America. Also "Justified" which I know has some fans here. "American Horror Story", "Louis CK", "Sons of Anarchy", "Legit" are more of my favorites. I read an interview back in the 1990s with Rupert in Esquire magazine where he said all he was concerned about was the TV shows are profitable. He keeps hands off FOX and FX and apparently too hands on the news properties. Stu once said that FOX was the easiest to work for. Apparently not so many MBAs trying their hand at seasoning the TV series soup as with the other networks.
