The article reports that the television stations owned by Tribune Broadcasting Co. have outbid its rival Fox Television Stations Inc. for the rerun of the animated comedy program "Family Guy." The bid by Tribune came as a big surprise to the U.S. television industry because it has been selling off its other television stations and made great efforts in reorganizing its corporate structure. Tribune has declined to reveal the financial terms of the bid.
