Turning off the TV...or not?

I've pretty much let Kurt watch the TV shows he likes. he doesn't watch too much TV and usually goes down in the basement to watch his shows. Yesterday he was watching the Family Guy and after about 15 minutes I made him turn it off. I admit, I think its usually a funny show, but yesterday's was just gross and I realized its not a show for kids. he went to watch it downstairs and I told him "No, you aren't watching it at all." he didn't get mad - he just started reading a book.
Two other shows he likes to watch are Seinfeld and 24. I'm on the fence about Seinfeld (I hate sitcoms so I've only seen about 3 episodes). I do NOT want him to watch 24...but I've never watched it. I guess there is a special on Sunday and then the series starts up again. Does anyone watch it? Would you let a 13 year old boy watch it?
So, is it wrong to not let him watch shows he's previously been allowed to watch?? I'm not trying to punish him or anything, I just think those shows are not appropriate. I guess I wasn't really paying attention before and besides, a lot of the stuff used to go ver his head. It probably doesn't anymore, but I don't think he needs to sit and laugh at a show that is making jokes about abortions (I'm pro choice, but come one...tasteless!) and the creepy old man in Family Guy is not funny at all.
Am I wrong about this? Is he just going to hate me?
