Fox pulls new 'Bones' episode in light of Virginia Tech massacre
UPI News Service, 04/17/2007
Fox network pulled Wednesday's new episode of "Bones," saying its story was not suitable after the massacre of Virginia Tech students in Blacksburg, Va.
The network said the "Bones" episode, which centers on the discovery of human remains on a college campus, would be inappropriate, E! News said Tuesday.
"Out of sensitivity to the victims and families touched by this senseless tragedy, we felt the change was appropriate," a Fox spokesperson said.
Fox will air a previous episode instead. "Bones," starring Emily Deschanel David Boreanaz, is the network's fourth-most watched scripted series after "House," "24" and "Prison Break."
