Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron helped launch FX on June 1, 1994 -- when it was originally stylized as "fX" -- as a host on the cable network's Breakfast Time. (Future The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan also worked on Breakfast Time.) Wikipedia notes that FX, which launched as Fox's cable sister network, offered one of the first forays into large-scale interactive TV with its use of the "fX Apartment," which would be used to introduce reruns of classic TV shows. "The 'f' in the channel's name and logo was rendered in lower-case to portray a type of relaxed friendliness; the stylized 'X' represented the channel's roots: the crossing searchlights of the 20th Century Fox logo," according to Wikipedia. In 2002, FX reinvented itself as a destination for daring and high-end TV shows with the debut of The Shield. To honor FX's 25th anniversary, TVLine is counting down the Top 25 shows in FX history.
