In the aftermath of Newtown, Conn.'s elementary school shooting, Syfy is pulling a Haven episode that was originally scheduled to air Friday that centered on a string of murders that took place at a high school.
Syfy issued a statement to The Hollywood Reporter regarding the decision: "Tonight's scheduled 10 p.m. episode of Haven contained scenes of fictitious violence in a high school. In light of today's tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, we have decided not to air it. At this time, no decision has been made as to when the episode will air."
Instead, the cable network will air a repeat of Eureka, the animated holiday episode "Do You See What I See," in Haven's usual 10 p.m. slot Friday. Haven's third season finale is scheduled to air next week.
President Barack Obama addressed the nation earlier in the day following the Newtown shooting, which took the lives of dozens of victims. "We're going to have to get together and take meaningful action," the president said. “As a country we have been through this too many times."
Definitely understandable and a good choice.
