CBS has pulled the controversial first episode of its new drama The Agency because of a reference to Saudi terrorist Osama Bin Laden.

The network announced it will replace the pilot of episode of the CIA-based series with a different episode when the show debuts on Sept. 27. The pilot episode came under heavy scrutiny last week after the terrorist attacks because it includes a reference to Osama Bin Laden as the mastermind of a phony bomb threat in London.

CBS executives were not saying when or if the pilot episode will air. - Joe Schlosser
