Microsoft, 'Family Guy' Creators Come to Their Senses

This week, though, we were relieved to learn that Microsoft has backed off the whole "Family Guy" idea given that some of the show's jokes are, uh, a tad unconventional.

Really, Microsoft, you really didn't know? Or was this all just some sort of weird publicity stunt for both parties?
