He did a great job on SNL and it will be nice to have someone completely different.

Wow. Flush that show down the toilet.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I loved him on SNL. I think he'll be great.

His SNL gig was a perfect episode. I say that as somebody who can't really stomach "Family Guy".

Feh. I can't stand what I've been able to sit through of McFarlane's pre-adolescent cheap laughs, and his inane antics while hosting SNL (that pathetic monologue where he had Kermit the frog make jokes about how NYC is full of Jews) were an embarassment. This is a really bad choice, a really bad choice, a barefaced bid for ratings.

It is such a great choice. They will definitely get that younger demographic they are always striving for.

So where we stand on this issue as of right now is that some people like it and some people don't. Did I miss anything?

If they want ratings then he just needs to make a entrance shirtless. He is delicious. ( and I understand he has belly button trail... immmmmm)

He is cute, though. Vile, unfunny, untalented and wildly overrated, the Rob Marshall of American TV comedy, but cute. I'd hate-f*ck him.

Maybe it's just a difference of opinion. It does happen round here.

I was hoping for Daniel Tosh. I guess McFarland is close enough.

I just feel like this show will be nothing but montages and film references done by his cartoon characters or perhaps even Ted. MacFarlane became the face of a network's entire night- despite being on the same network and night of one of the most influential shows (never mind cartoons) ever. He's talented for sure but his ubiquity and overexposure turn a lot of people off.

I still wish the Muppets could host the Oscars. If I want people making puns and jokes of all the nominees and categories, it would be infinitely improved by being made of felt.

Otherwise, get me Tina Fey or even Robert Downey Jr. hosting. Somebody with a lot of self-deprecation and dry wit.

Of course, it could just be you.

Steve Carrell and Tina Fey should host together.

"Steve Carrell and Tina Fey should host together."

Now that I'd happily watch.

I say bring back James "I don't want to be here" Franco and Anne "I want to be here too much" Hathaway.
