Animation took a break from its normal schedule of Domination this week, out of respect to those lost in the Sandy Hook tragedy.

New episodes of both Family Guy and American Dad were pulled and replaced with reruns.

Fox gave no explanation for why they were pulling the episodes. The Family Guy ep "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph" reportedly tells a more ridiculous version of the nativity story.

The sensitive nature of the American Dad episode mght be a little more obvious- "Minstrel Krampus" is about a demon that punishes naughty children at Christmastime.

The scheduled rerun of The Cleveland Show, an episode titled "Die Semi-Hard" was also pulled from the schedule, this time due to specific scenes of gun violence.

    This is absolutely ridiculous, I don't see Criminal Minds pulling any episodes and they're pretty violent. Hell, look at the Fast and Furious 'mission' our government ran. Guess it's ok to kill everyone but kids.

    Big boot. Duh these shows are geared for teens
