Your pop culture cheat sheet

Here's what's happening in the world of entertainment today:

Microsoft is pulling its ads from the upcoming "Family Guy Presents: Seth and Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show" special on Fox, according to Variety. Execs from the company were offended by some of the jokes at a taping for the show, which reportedly poked fun at deaf people and the Holocaust, among other things.

Speaking of advertising, Advertising Age reports that "Grey's Anatomy" has the most expensive ad prices for a scripted show, while "FlashForward" is the priciest new program. Among comedies, "Two and a Half Men" will cost you the most.

"Blue Collar" comedian Ron White has been a fixture on Comedy Central and The Hollywood Repoter says that the network has cut a new deal with him for an animated series called "Hounds," starring White's voice in the title role.

New music out today: the long-awaited "This Is It" soundtrack album (the Michael Jackson documentary is out in theaters tonight), Train's "Save Me, San Francisco," "Full Circle" by Creed and Rod Stewart's "Soulbook."

On DVD today: animated hit "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs," horror flick "Orphan," Woody Allen's "Whatever Works," "Nothing Like the Holidays," full-length movie "Battlestar Galactica: The Plan," six-part documentary "Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer's Cut)" and "The Prisoner: The Complete Series."

    A drunk, one joke comedian doing voice overs for an animated series.

    Well, we have another one joke comedian proving that most of us aren't smarter than a fifth grader... "You might be a redneck if.... You don't know what two pick up trucks plus two pick up trucks equals".
