Seth MacFarlane has proven too racy for Microsoft, Variety reports.
The company pulled its sponsorship from Fox’s Nov. 8 MacFarlane and Alex Borstein variety show, "Family Guy Presents: Seth and Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show," after attending the taping and finding the content not to its liking.
Sponsorship of the show– which was to have run commercial-free with Microsoft Windows 7 marketing messages built in–was part of a bigger Microsoft marketing deal with News Corp.
The special included typical “Family Guy”-type jokes, Variety said, such as “riffs on deaf people, the Holocaust, feminine hygiene and incest.”
Fox will air the show with another yet-to-be-named sponsor.
