Fox pulls new episodes of 'Family Guy' and 'American Dad' after shooting

Posted on

FOX has decided to pull new episodes of Family Guy and American Dad, which were scheduled to air Sunday, in light of yesterday’s tragic shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

It is understood that the network decided not to air the episodes, titled “Jesus, Mary and Joseph!” and “Minstrel Krampus,” to avoid running potentially sensitive content.

Yesterday, Syfy made a similar move when it pulled a new episode of Haven that featured fictitious high school violence.

The episodes of Family Guy and American Dad will be replaced by repeats of “Grumpy Old Man” and “Wheels & The Legman and The Case of Grandpa’s Key,” respectively, according to The Futon Critic.
