MacFarlane Passes On Hosting Next Year’s Oscars

He may have had his detractors and he may have helped raise the ratings for this year’s Academy Awards telecast, but Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane stated today on Twitter that he would not be back to host next year’s Oscars.

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise really. In addition to overseeing his TV animation empire, FOX has just picked up the live action sitcom Dads which he is executive producing. He also is shooting the western comedy A Million Ways To Die In The West which he will follow up with the sequel to last summer’s hit comedy Ted.

The search now begins for show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron to find a replacement.
