Will Seth MacFarlane host the Oscars again?

MacOn Sunday night, Seth MacFarlane polarized America. Either people thought he knocked it out of the park as the Oscar's host, or they thought he was one of the worst hosts in the events history (which is the camp I would put myself in).

So, would he do it again?

"No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though," he tweeted this morning to one of his followers who wondered if he was going to get back on the Oscar horse.

Ratings rose during this year's telecast, with 40 million viewers and an increase of 19 percent in the 18-49 year old demographic.

Two Hollywood Reporter personalities talked about his hosting, with each having different viewpoints.

"I've always gotten a kick out of MacFarlane's equal-opportunity offensive humor and like Family Guy and Ted a lot, but last night he was like an all-star who struck out a lot and batted .167 in his first World Series," said Todd McCarthy. "Notice how, during the second half of the show, he did virtually nothing but routinely introduce the next presenters. And from now on, I will like him less because of his John Wilkes Booth joke, which someone should have nixed ahead of time."

His colleague, Tim Goodman, felt otherwise.

"MacFarlane was relatively tame if you know anything at all about his canon, and he was respectful through and through. As a guy who can actually sing and has recorded a successful album (fueling more jealousy and backlash from his detractors), his pick was more spot-on than anyone gave the Academy credit for. But they did get lucky. He didn't give up, like Franco. He took the job extremely seriously and put himself out there. Ultimately, he excelled at balance," he wrote. 

What camp are you in? Should he host again?
