Twentieth Century Fox Television, Inc. (also spelled 20th Century Fox Television) is the television production division of the Fox movie studio, a subsidiary of the Fox Entertainment Group, part of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation. Twentieth Television (also spelled 20th Television) is a separate distribution arm overseen by News Corp.'s Fox Television Stations Group, although it uses a variant of the studio logo. [1]

20th Century Fox Television was founded in 1949 as other studios were branching out into television production as well. At that time, the company was known as TCF Television Productions, Inc. until 1955. TCFTV folded the operations of TV production companies they've acquired: Metromedia Producers Corporation in 1986, New World Entertainment in 1997, and MTM Enterprises in 1998, and is the current distributor for most of the shows originally produced by the two companies.

Since 1986, TCFTV has served as the Fox television network's unofficial production arm (with Fox Television Studios being viewed as the network's official television production division), producing the bulk of series airing on the network, including The Simpsons. Twentieth Television produced the first two series that aired on Fox's sister network, MyNetworkTV: Desire and Fashion House.

From 1993 to 1994, the 20th Television logo was used to represent 20th Century Fox Television, though as stated, these were separate entities.
