“Sherlock Holmes” to Sponsor “Family Guy” Special

Replacement sponsor found after Microsoft backed out



    “Sherlock Holmes” to Sponsor “Family Guy”  Special
    "Family Guy" has a new sponsor.

    It’s true Watson -- Sherlock Holmes will take on “Family Guy’s” case.

    Warner Bros. is set to air a sneak peak from its upcoming detective film “Sherlock Holmes” during a special half-hour episode of “Family Guy” on Sunday, The Associated Press reported.

    Last week, Microsoft bailed as sole-sponsor for Fox’s "Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show."

    After reportedly finding out the episode would include Holocaust and incest jokes, the software behemoth said they feared “Family Guy’s” off-color humor might clash with its Windows branding.

    "Sherlock Holmes," starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, will debut in theaters in December.
