    Executors of Michael Jackson's estate are demanding that the Discovery Channel cancel plans for a show that dramatically reenacts Jackson's autopsy. Cheap and disgusting, right? The advertisement for the show features Jackson on a gurney, covered by a sheet, with only his signature gloved hand peeping out.  Tacky.

    John Branca and John McClain fired off an angry letter Wednesday to Discovery Communications calling the planned show in shockingly bad taste and insensitive to the feelings of Jackson's family.

    The letter accused Discovery of trying to dupe the public into believing the show has medical value when it really is just sensationalistic.

    Do you think Discovery should pull the show? Or more importantly: Will they pull the show?
