Seth MacFarlane

I'll NEVER Host

Rest easy, prudes ... and Kardashian family ... 'cause "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane says there's "no way" he'll return to the Academy Awards as a host.

MacFarlane's hosting performance has been the subject of some major media scrutiny ... by people who take the awards WAAYYY too seriously ... yet, ratings for the show were reportedly UP this year.

Still, when Seth was asked on Twitter if he would ever return as the host ... he tweeted back, "No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though."

Oh, and in case you forgot the joke he made about the K-Squad ... here's what he said while talking about Ben Affleck in "Argo":

"First time I saw him with all that dark facial hair, I thought 'My god, the Kardashians have finally made the jump to film.'"

C'mon ... that's funny stuff.

They knew his kind of humor and he delivered it. Anyone talking trash or mad about it, talk to the people that brought him on. He was great.

He had a retro look. Very charming and funny. Heard Neil Patrick Harris batted around. Save us from that. A guy who goes home to his husband?

Poor guy got stuck with the WORST Oscars ever! He got stuck with a bunch of old queens trying to make it into the Tony Awards. Musicals? Really? We want to hear jokes about all those rich f***ers who are sooo busy patting themselves on the back. We want drunken fools and fashion malfunctions not singing!!! Except for the Boob song.
