This will either be very very good or very very bad.

I can see that this is obviously a move to get the kidz to watch.....but I suspect a lot of people (especially outside of North America) will be going "Who?" and not bothering to tune in.

The Oscars hosts have been spotty over the past couple of years and I'm not surprised to see they're still trying to find the right fit. They're obviously looking to attract a younger audience and IMHO, this is definitely a better move than the Anne Hathaway/James Franco debacle.

Seth MacFarlane is crazy talented and is pretty funny. I think this could work.

I'm far from being a fan of Family Guy. That said, I think his type of random referential humor that takes away from actual plot and plays on pop culture nostalgia will work really well in the award show format.

I didn't like him when he hosted Saturday Night Live. Overall, he wasn't all that amusing, and he wore out his welcome with some racially insensitive remarks.

:yawn:

It might be more fun if it's just his voice doing Stewie and Brian:

TED was a pretty big hit internationally so they will probably attach that to Seth to promote the event.

I'm gonna be honest and say that I am ridiculously, over-the-top excited about this. I think Seth's an absolutely fantastic choice.

I couldn't agree more. Love him!

I knew of Seth McFarlane but hadn't watched his shows before seeing him host SNL. He's really talented at voices but I can tell he mostly does voice work because his teleprompter reading was realllllllly obvious, and his pacing for a live show wasn't good. For these reasons, I think this is a poor choice.

Oh, I hadn't thought of that. He's super good at improvisation; he's shown that over and over. I hope they don't force him to stick to a lame script when off-script would be so, so much better.

Gosh, I hope not. Kids really should not be watching "Family Guy". (Although I know they do.)

(Unless by "kidz" you mean people in their early 20's.)
