20th Century Fox Television is the television production division of 20th Century Fox Film Corporation, and a production arm of the Fox Broadcasting Company (both are subsidiaries of the Fox Entertainment Group, in turn part of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation). 20th Television is a separate distribution arm overseen by News Corporation's Fox Television Stations Group, although it uses a variant of the film studio logo.

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. 20CFT 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 these companies.

Since 1986, 20CFT 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 television series airing on the television network. 20CFT produced the first two series that aired on Fox's sister network, MyNetworkTV: Desire and Fashion House.

From August 1992 to April 1995, the 20th Television logo was used to represent 20th Century Fox Television, though as stated, these were separate entities.

Notable shows produced by 20CFT include Glee, Bones, Family Guy, 24, Modern Family, American Dad!, Futurama and most notably The Simpsons.
