Fox’s fair game

Network glams out at TV Critics Assn. party

HOLLYWOOD — Maintaining its rep as the network with the most elaborate TV Critics Assn. parties, Fox rented out Santa Monica Pier’s Pacific Park last Monday for its turn on the summer press tour.

Setting gave critics, execs and Fox series stars a chance to try their hand at Skee-Ball or experience a trampoline jump in between photo ops and in-terviews. Munching on park fare — including tri-tip sandwiches and pizza — were Fox Entertainment chairman Peter Liguori and new Fox Entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly. Also in the house: “Back to You” star Patricia Heaton; “24” leader Kiefer Sutherland; “Family Guy” exec producer Seth MacFarlane; Primetime Emmys producer Ken Ehrlich; and TV Academy topper Dick Askin.
