Fox announced that it will not air a crossover programming block it had planned for this Sunday because of the real-life tragedies caused by tornadoes in the South, TheFutonCritic.com reported.
The May sweeps stunt was to feature a hurricane that impacted "Family Guy," "The Cleveland Show" and "American Dad," sweeping through Quahog, Stoolbend and Langley Falls with comic implications. However, Fox decided that the current devastation in the U.S. South makes these programs inappropriate at this time.
The hurricane crossover episodes of the shows are likely to be rescheduled for next season. Meanwhile, the network will air repeats of the three shows this Sunday, along with a previously announced original episode of “The Simpsons.”
