On Sunday, Fox's "Animation Domination" was supposed to be a crossover event, with a hurricane sweeping through Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show. But in wake of the deadly storms that ripped through the South this week, Fox decided to pull the episodes from the schedule. Repeats of the shows will air in their place, with the crossover event shifted to next season.

"In light of the recent storms that have affected the nation, Fox has decided to postpone the crossover episodes that were originally scheduled to air this Sunday," the network said in a statement. Seth McFarlane and his team had written the episodes over a year ago, but they agreed to hold them after consulting with Fox.

McFarlane is known for weaving controversial plotlines into his shows, but in this case he was willing to keep from stirring the pot.
