"My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss" is headed for the Fox scrap heap to be replaced by back-to-back repeats of "Family Guy," starting Jan. 16.

The network says new episodes of the animated cult favorite will debut on Fox later this year.

"Boss" now joins the likes of "Playing It Straight" and "Forever Eden" on the discard pile of Fox series whose low ratings -- in the case of "Boss," barely more than 4 million viewers per week -- led to their early cancellation, Zap2it.com said.
