As "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarland predicted at Comic-Con, Fox Broadcasting has declined to air an episode of the show next season that deals with abortion. Fox released this statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed:

"Fox will not air the ‘Partial Terms of Endearment’ episode of ‘Family Guy,’ but we fully support the producers’ right to make the episode and distribute it in whatever way they want."

MacFarland said it might go out as part of a DVD package.

In other Fox Broadcasting news, the network has tweaked its Fall premiere dates, moving up "Glee" and "So You Think You Can Dance," and moving back "Til Death" and "Brothers," the Live Feed reports (including a chart with the new dates).
