seth macfarlane returning to host oscars Seth MacFarlane reportedly asked to host the Oscars againSeth MacFarlane got mixed reviews as the host for the 2013 Academy Awards — though our Zap2it poll says he was the best of the past five years. Would you want him back next year?

According to Just Jared, sources say the “Family Guy” creator has been asked to host again.

“After defending his performance, the producers reached out to Seth and invited him back to host the show again. He’s not sure if he’s going to do it, but he has to decide within the next couple of weeks,” says a source.

The producers in question are Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, who were asked back as producers for the 2014 telecast, the Academy announced earlier this week. Perhaps they want to stick with MacFarlane, whose Oscars telecast ratings were up about 18% in adults 18-49.

MacFarlane previously said there’s “no way” he’d host the Oscars again — but do you think the producers will convince him otherwise?

Do you want them to?
