Abstract: Fox has substituted one original episode of Family Guy for another on Sunday, the debut of its new fall season lineup that night, because the episode scheduled to air contained a “couple” references to a hurricane. “Out of sensitivity to what happened, we’re moving it back a couple weeks,” a Fox spokesman told B&C.

EDIT: Before the complaints.

Hooray for stupid censorship. I guess we can't mention anything with hurricanes anymore. Remember, its the Miami Storms and the Carolina Inclement Weathers from now on. :-t


i think thats very respectful of fox

Yeah, a tad ridiculous. If it mocks the victims of Katrina, then that's tasteless and the episode shouldn't be aired during primetime on Fox. But if it just randomly mentions a hurricane, then there's no reason it shouldn't be played tonight if it was scheduled that way, and this mess isn't going to be over in two weeks anyway.

I agree, sometimes this type of thing gets ridiculous

This was my thought too, but apparently that made me some sort of inhumane monster over at the FBC. Its not like it can mention Katrina, as the episode was done like 3-4 months ago probably. If not longer ago.

Its not like Family Guy holds back with any other references. Tongiht when Stewie played Marco Polo with Helen Keller. How is that not offensive? And really, who cares about a cartoon show anyway?

Yeah, I talked with 34 about this tonight. I think we're trying to be a little too PC these days with everything. They were not doing this on purpose, and if people want to connect it with Katrina, then it seems to me that they are just looking for an excuse to make a big circus out of it.

I also stated this (and I hope I don't create a firestorm, but I think it's basically the same situation on a different scale): How is it that a show like "All In the Family" can still be on Cable TV with all the racial slurs that are used on it during every show? People laughed WITH this show 30 years ago...I just don't see how TV Land or whoever else shows it can get away with it these days.

If it were actually a show on the network TV lineup right now, whatever station that showed it would immediately be sued/berated by almost every minority group in the USA. It's pretty danged insensitive to those groups. :-o
