Maybe it was funny to you, but I wasn't impressed with Dads at all.

Not snagging Conan when they had the chance. Especially in 2001 and that debacle with him and Jay wouldn't have happened to begin with.

Turning down both Glee actress Melissa Benoist and her Glee character Marley Rose from Glee sitcom too quick.

Not careful on removing both The Mindy Project actress Zoe Jarman and her The Mindy Project Betsy Putch character from The Mindy Project cast lineup carelessly.

In hindsight, maybe Conan O'Brien should've gone to Fox when he had the chance. On The Tonight Show, Conan pretty much had to compromise his offbeat, absurdist style of comedy to appeal to a decidedly more "middle American" audience (who don't want anything too edgy or offensive). Perhaps, Conan was reluctant to leave NBC (people seem to forget or overlook that Conan pressed the issue about getting the Tonight Show job since he was getting offers from Fox) at that time because didn't want to leave behind all that he had built up on the show as far as bits, cast & crew and otherwise.

At the time it seemed like Fox should've gone for it but in hindsight it probably would've bombed like Chevy Chase and The Magic Hour. I think Conan opposite Jay and Dave wouldn't have fared well, even with the 34-35 minute head start. Conan would still have to pivot his style to cast a broader net in the earlier time-slot.

The way I see it, I believe that third time is the charm. Fox would have had a more established late night star in Conan. Look at CBS they failed with Merv Griffin and Pat Sajak and they finally struck gold with David Leterrman because he was well-established.

Since it's debut in 1987 FOX has always been number one in TV and when it debuted in 1987 FOX was going to prove that they could be a successful network in TV by having outstanding shows and an impressive audience in the TV world. But it was sitcoms that made FOX a huge success in ratings thanks to Married With Children and if it weren't for Married With Children FOX wouldn't be successful today with sitcoms that appealed to a huge audience. Now one of the biggest mistakes in FOX history was cancelling the sitcom Top Of The Heap in the 90's because when it debuted in 1992 Top Of The Heap was destined to be a hit given the promotion it recieved by FOX and by putting it after Married With Children in the 1992 FOX sitcom lineup was a smart idea but even though it was a cool sitcom Top Of The Heap was cancelled after so many episodes but it marked the debut sitcom of actor Matt LeBlanc. Another mistake that FOX had a habit of doing that they still do today is they would give comedians/comediennes their very own sitcoms then cancel them as we saw what FOX did with the sitcom Pauly which starred comedian Pauly Shore who was coming off the success of his recent movie at the time Son In Law but even though Pauly was a fun sitcom FOX cancelled it in 1993 and you don't hear much about Pauly Shore much anymore. Another comedian that suffered the same fate by FOX was Christopher Titus when he had the sitcom Titus and it was gonna be a hit but it also was canceled. Also besides sitcoms FOX went in a entirely different direction by adding reality shows and morning shows and FOX had a morning hit on their hands with the debut of the morning show FOX After Breakfast but even though it was a success FOX After Breakfast got cancelled in the 90's. But the biggest mistake FOX made was have the reality show Temptation Island and I don't know why it was a successful show that lasted two seasons "Season 1 and 2" and spun off a special called Temptation Island The Wedding and based on the show's success it made Mark L. Walberg a superstar for FOX and then he went on to do Antiques Roadshow for PBS and The Moment Of Truth also on FOX. Another thing FOX did when they got into the game show world was cancel Greed The Series because it seemed to be a huge hit but then it was cancelled for no reason and Greed was a cool game show that got huge ratings for FOX. Another game show FOX cancelled for no reason was a game show named The Richlist that was a remake of a British game show that only had one episode shown. But as for sitcoms FOX really got hurt when the sitcom Arrested Development was cancelled and FOX pulled the plug on the upcoming season for no reason but at least Arrested Development jumpstarted the career of Jason Bateman who became successful in the movies Identity Thief Horrible Bosses and Zootopia. But if it wasn't for The Tracey Ullman Show and The Simpsons FOX is still the king of sitcoms and other shows. But I wish FOX could have more sitcoms that are hits just like Roc Martin Parker Lewis Can't Lose and Malcolm In The Middle and that would make FOX successful again

The Fox Network debuted in 1986. The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers was Fox's first show, and Fox had few hits during its first years on the air. In fact, network executives had even openly talked to the press about pulling the plug on the network as late as 1990.
