The FOX Broadcasting Company is a TV network which began in 1986. The Jim Henson Company produced a number of shows for FOX, including Dog City and The Animal Show, and daily reruns of Muppet Babies. CinderElmo was also originally broadcast on this network.
Additionally, Farscape was originally planned to be shown on FOX (where it was going to be titled Space Chase), and in 2002, FOX made a deal with Henson to air an all-new Muppet show, which never reached fruition.
The Muppets have also appeared on (and been referenced on) FOX News, the company's cable news channel.
