Fox Pulls Family Guy and American Dad Episodes in Wake of Shooting
In the aftermath of Friday's Connecticut school shooting, Fox has decided to pull new episodes of Family Guy and American Dad on Sunday.
Fox did not explain the specific reason for pulling Family Guy's "Jesus, Mary and Joseph!" and American Dad's "Minstrel Krampus" beyond the desire to avoid any sensitive content in light of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The network has also pulled the 7 p.m. Cleveland Show repeat of "Die Semi-Hard" in favor of "Menace II Secret Society."
Following the repeat, Cleveland Show will air a new episode as scheduled. The Simpsons and Bob's Burgers will also broadcast as planned.
