Twitter rejects Seth McFarlane
Seth McFarlane hosted the 2013 Academy Awards, and we weren't sure how it was going to shake out. Well, the evening isn't even over yet, and the verict seems to be in. Suffice to say that, if Tweeters have their way, McFarlane will not be invited back.
Tweets dissing Seth McFarlane are swarming in faster than I can hope to curate them. Hey, there's inherent risk in hosting the show that's forever in Billy Crystal's shadow. Give it up, though: Seth McFarlane is a better singer than you expected.

No, Seth McFarlane, we don't think that bulet-in-Lincoln's-head jokes are funny. Sorry. Can you go away?

HA! RT@nomchompsky: Say what you want, but Seth McFarlane's amusing the hell out of the coveted "people who are Seth McFarlane" demographic.

Is anyone surprised that Seth McFarlane is absolutely horrible and sexist?

Wow Seth McFarlane and these Oscars are really bad. He is painfully unfunny

They need to let the Oscar winners finish speaking instead of having Seth McFarlane make terrible jokes.

More Austrians. More singing. More dancing. Please, for the love of dog, no more Seth McFarlane. #Oscar

And now, the minority report:
Gotta say I'm genuinely enjoying Seth McFarlane so far.

Dear World: Pipe down, Seth McFarlane is doing EXACTLY what you thought he would. Not every Family Guy joke was hilarious either.

I put this together during the tribute to musical films. There. I admitted it.
