Microsoft has yanked its sponsorship of Fox’s upcoming Seth MacFarlane comedy/variety special.  Our only question is: Has Microsoft ever watched Family Guy?  What did they expect?

But that was before Microsoft execs attended the special’s taping on Oct. 16. The special included MacFarlane and Alex Borstein – the voice of "Family Guy" matriarch Lois – pitching Windows 7.  For most of the special, however, MacFarlane and Borstein made typical "Family Guy" style jokes, including riffs on deaf people, the Holocaust, feminine hygiene and incest.

Maybe Jerry Seinfeld is looking good again?
