New Oscar Host Seth MacFarlane Will Be Forced to Dress Nice, Be Charismatic, and Sing

Family Guy guy Seth MacFarlane has just been hired to host the 2013 Oscars. The awards will air on ABC in February. Good thing the Academy has so much time between now and the ceremony because they'll need it to teach Seth MacFarlane how to smile good, stop dressing like a slob, and most challenging of all, transform him into an old-timey song and dance man.

    Despite Splitsider's objections and disapproval, I actually find Seth MacFarlane to be hilarious and the right choice for this

      I don't object or disapprove! He seems like a smart choice.

      I was so burnt out on him and his endless shows, but I have to admit, he won me over with SNL. The guy does have talent.

    I wonder how much his stint on SNL influenced this.

      A lot, according to Deadline, they say SNL was essentially a tryout.

    Single biggest reason I won't be able to watch, something about Seth live is horribly grating to my nerves.
