Fox has pulled a March episode of Family Guy after a mash-up of clips made the series look like it was portraying a bombing at the Boston Marathon.
In the clip, which has nearly 140,000 views on YouTube, a scene from the March 17 episode, "Turban Cowboy," depicts Peter Griffin accidentally blowing up a bridge while using a terrorist's cell phone. However, the clip places that scene directly after an unrelated one, in which Bob Costas asks Peter Griffin how he won the Boston Marathon.
The Masters boosted CBS to a win Sunday.
The dramatic final round, which saw Adam Scott defeat Angel Cabrera in a two-hole sudden-death playoff, delayed CBS' prime-time lineup by 57 minutes, but lifted every show for an average of 12.4 million viewers and a 2.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic for the night. (Preliminary numbers are not available for The Mentalist, which aired after 11 p.m. ET.)
