Seth MacFarlane Comments on His Future -- or Lack of One -- Hosting the Oscars THR

Following up on Sunday’s high-profile gig as host of the Academy Awards, Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter and indicated that he won't make himself available for a second try at the job, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.

In response to a question from one of his followers about hosting the show again, he wrote, "No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though."

MacFarlane's hosting was controversial, with one criticism coming from the Anti-Defamation League. The group on Monday criticized MacFarlane’s "Ted"-themed segment, claiming it perpetuated anti-Semitic stereotypes, the story notes.

Despite the criticisms, the show saw a 19% increase in viewership among adults 18 to 49.
