The news for the Heene family from Fort Collins, Colorado, does not seem to be getting much better.  Since the incident with their son, Falcon, a.k.a balloon boy, and the fact that he was not in their homemade balloon that floated around Colorado for two hours last Thursday, the family has faced a lot of criticism and may even face criminal charges. And tonight, Lifetime television network, which is re-airing the ABC episodes of “Wife Swap,” has decided to pull the Heene family’s episode that was set to air on October 29.  The network also says that it “does not have any plans to air it in the near future.”
