Viewers prefer Tina and Amy to Oscars’ ‘boring’ host Seth MacFarlane

Well, those are some big heels to fill. The Academy Awards show hadn’t begun yet tonight, but viewers were already clamoring for SNL duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who hosted the Golden Globes. William Shatner said what everyone is apparently thinking.

Off to a rocky start:

Just sprinkle a few Sarah Palin-bashing jokes into the mix and you’ll be as good as liberal gold, Seth.


Correction: This post has been updated to reflect the correct spelling of Mr. MacFarlane’s name. We apologize for the error.

    Seth is doing a good job, That is saying as a Family Guy fan.

      I’ve never seen Family Guy and I know nothing about Seth McFarlane, but so far I think he’s fabulous. I especially like the musical numbers, great respect for the past.

    That sounds like what people have said about the “Oscars” every year for the past 20+ years.

    He is AWFUL… a song and dance man? UGH

  • John (it true me am)

    As someone who has seen every episode of his several animated series, I say this with no anti-Seth bias.

    Seth McFarlane is a jackass. Every appearance he makes is just self absorbed and cringe inducing. He lives to hear himself do a straight musical number, even when the audience is there for him to tell some sort of joke.

    A few years ago as a time filler FOX aired some horrible live action Seth McFarlane-Alex Borstein live action variety show hour as part of their Sunday lineup that was just the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life.
