Looks like Billy Ray Cyrus is retrenching a bit on the PR front, canceling Wednesday's scheduled 'Good Morning America' and 'The View' interviews in the wake of poor response to a recent magazine interview.

As we reported recently, that GQ interview found Cyrus, father of teenage TV and music mega-star Miley Cyrus, expressing some regret over the attention his daughter's fame has brought into his family: "I should have said, ‘Enough is enough -- it’s getting dangerous and somebody’s going to get hurt.'"

That seems to make some sense, right? Well, according to CMT, it ticked off people inside his camp, causing Cyrus to tell PEOPLE that his comments were unintentionally "explosive." It seems maybe there's some arguments in his household as well, as he goes on to say, "It's very important to me to work on mending my family right now."

So apparently the canceled interviews are an attempt to let this story burn out a bit. But you won't have to wait very long to see another Cyrus on the air, as daughter Miley hosts the venerable 'Saturday Night Live' on March 5.
