Here's your "feel old" moment of the day - the FOX network launched in the fall of 1986 with Joan Rivers' late night talk show. Brodcasting & Cable has an in-depth about the history of the "fourth network" that has of late been finishing #1 with the 18-49 set:

Awesome read, thanks for the hookup. I had always read in other articles about Fox that the network launched in 1988 with Married With Children & America's Most Wanted, but I forgot all about Joan Rivers.

Bah... No "Beans Baxter," No Peace!
Just kidding...
I can remember a Fox-less universe as a teenager, and as it's morphed into a broadcasting force, it's provided me with some of my favorite TV memories. Who'd a thunk it?
Although I can't believe it's been twenty years...

I remember it more because the local affiliate launched with a contest that allowed local viewers to choose what syndicated shows it would air. It was the usual suspects: I Love Lucy, Star Trek, Andy Griffith. The station also was the only one in the area showing Star Trek: TNG and Arsenio Hall when they started.

Otherwise, I remember the network's Werewolf and Duet.

"There's a sale in the school store on wet wipes"

Funniest moment EVER (to me at least) on that show.

Thank you I come here daily to feel old...actually, this sort of scary, I have a tape from my local affiliate, that means the tape has to be over 20 years old, switch over back in 1986 that had a guy saying you can pick us on rabbit ears, antenna, on August 11, 1986 or September. That's when my UHF station from TV-23 WVAH to Fox 11 WVAH.

Not much changed during the day but yeah I remember some the early stuff. Some stuff that is still on today. Wow.
