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.

He was great, people are way too critical of the Oscar Host. I love the fact that he doesn't give a s*it about offending porn stars and musicians who beat their girlfriends!

He was better than the last 4 previous hosts.People need to get the iron rods out of their humorless as*es and lighten the heck up. The Harvey Weinstein slam was even better than the Kardashian dig.

The fact that this azzwipe has somehow become famous shows how far the bar for success has dropped. Neither he nor his creepy cartoons are remotely funny. Hey seth, suck a fart out of my azz.

The show was lame. He had some good ones but not great. He is one very talented guy, but he was out of his comfort zone and had to keep it nice.


He was used to boost the ratings for the 18-49 all important money demographic.


If the Oscars want a boost that would be funny as hell is to have Seth McFarland, Matt Stone and Trey Parker host.


I saw him on SNL and he nailed it. Never knew just how talented he is and quite a voice. Bruno Mars was also very good on SNL.


Like he said if you don't know me just ask your kids. This is not going to bother him in the least.

Ratings were up because we all had our TVs on hoping this was going to be good. The whole thing was far too long and half the time I was embarrassed for him.

To be honest, I only tuned in for Seth. I don't watch award ceremonies, but when I do, it's usually for the host.

Although I don't watch his cartoons, he's great on comedy central roasts and anywhere he appears really. In a field which very few are good, he's a comedic genius.

Seth had to say it before everyone else did. I thought he was a horrible host. I love my comedy stuffed with vulgarity, dirty jokes and offensive trash just as much as the next guy, but Seth MacFarlane should stick to cartoons. The funniest part of the show was when he appeared onstage as Ted..
