Fox has rescheduled the original animated episode of "Family Guy" that was pulled in the wake of last week’s Connecticut school shooting, reports Deadline.com.

The "Family Guy" episode will air this coming Sunday, after the network pulled it in favor of a repeat, as previously reported. While the episode doesn’t contain violence, it makes fun of religion in way that was considered inappropriate in the wake of the tragedy, the story says.

There’s no new airdate yet for the pulled "American Dad" episode, which does include gun violence, the story adds.

The Syfy drama "Haven," meanwhile, likely won’t air its pulled episode until mid-January because it depicts violence, according to the piece.

  1. But airing an episode that “makes fun of religion” two days before a holiday sacred to Christians is just fine with Fox otherwise.
    Got it.
