Fox’s Animation Domination block is now a thing of the past, with live-action comedies like Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Mulaney moving to Sunday nights. It’s almost hard to believe that it’s only been six years or so since the last time the animated line-up was broken up with real people, seeing as how this schedule has for years shown more cartoons than Saturday mornings. With this relatively big change kicking into high gear this weekend with Mulaney’s premiere, we decided to look back at some of Fox’s most memorable Sunday night series of the past, when The Cleveland Show was just a glint in Seth MacFarlane’s eye.

”Married
Married With Children
Love and marriage never looked as trashy and godawfully amusing than they did when Al (Ed O'Neill) and Peg Bundy (Katey Sagal) were the ones laying in bed next to each other. This long-lasting sitcom was Fox's first huge hit, introducing TV audiences to the concept of "The family that pretty much hates being around each other stays together." With dumb-as-bricks kids Kelly (Christina Applegate) and Bud (David Faustino), the Bundys were a family that didn't celebrate blue-collar life as much as they made it seem like the worst thing in the world, which was quite a different vibe from all the affluent families surrounding them on TV. Though Married With Children doesn't feel nearly as fresh now as it did when it debuted in 1987, neither does the world. Steve Rhoades!
