Once upon a time, or should I say, a long time ago in a TV era far far away, Fox used to be my favorite network. It was edgy, funny, and daring, with the only sitcoms I managed to watch regularly ("The Simpsons" and "Married With Children," and later, "Malcolm in the Middle"), and of course "The X-Files," which I stuck with to the bitter end. When the new century rolled around, it got even better, with my perhaps all-time favorite show ever, "24", and then "Prison Break." I also liked some of the new reality TV shows, such as "American Idol," and who can forget the genius of "Joe Millionaire"???
So it was kind of a shock to look at TV By the Numbers' assessment of this season's shows on Fox and to realize that I don't watch a single show on that network(!). I did watch "Fringe" up to the end of last season and earlier this season, but TV shows on Friday got moved around and somehow I ended up with a three-way conflict on Friday night with only a dual-tuner on my TiVo, and "Fringe" was left out. Last week's episode got recorded, and I tried watching it, but I've missed too much for it to make sense. (Not that things ever really made sense with "Fringe.")
The TV world changes, and I'd say that ABC is now my favorite network for scripted shows, with "Once Upon a Time" being my current favorite, and "Scandal" pretty high too.
