Perhaps it comes as no surprise, but after ho-hum broadcasts featuring Billy Crystal (2012) and James Franco and Anne Hathaway (2011), Sunday’s Oscar ceremony hosted by Seth MacFarlane scored its biggest TV audience in three years.

But after a night of jokes that poked fun at Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Brown and Rihanna, “boobs,” Jews in Hollywood, Oscar’s biggest losers and his own hosting legacy, the potty-mouthed brain behind TV’s Family Guy says he won’t be back as Oscar host.

In an exchange with a fan on Twitter early Tuesday, MacFarlane said “no way” when asked whether he’d do another go-round.

 

Personally, I loved MacFarlane’s jabs. They injected some venom into Hollywood’s phoniest night.

You can take a look at some of MacFarlane’s best moments from this year’s Oscars and sound off on who you hope hosts the show next year.

    I thought he did a perfect job and did exactly wahat was expected of him. If people thought he was offensive, have they forgotten Ricky Gervais?

    Seth MacFarlane ROCKED. He was hysterically funny. Americans are just not intelligent enough to understand the underlying humour.
    Unless it’s pie in the face slapstick comedy, they just don’t get it.
    MacFarlane sings, dances you name it. I think he brought a touch of class to the Academy Awards. Let’s get him back again next year !!!! Ahahahahah !

    I’d like to see John Cleese host the Oscars. I’m sure you’ll get a lot more than dead parrots and SPAM.

    Maybe if Seth won’t do it he could talk Brian and Stewie into it. I’d totally watch!
