Did you watch these Fox shows?

During the month of April 1987, the Fox Television Network launched in prime time with three Sunday series: "Married . . . With Children," "21 Jump Street" and "The Tracey Ullman Show." From that humble if memorable beginning 25 years ago to this: An anniversary special Sunday night celebrating a quarter-century of taste-busting, rule-squashing TV rabble-rousing that upended an industry and gave the world some pretty darned good shows (and yes, some pretty awful ones, too).
