[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7029:]]Ratings were up for this year's Oscars, and with that we get news that Seth MacFarlane has been asked to return next year.
MacFarlane hosted the Oscars this year getting mixed reactions, but it seems the Academy was pleased with the performance as the actor/comedian has been invited back along with the show's two producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
JustJared has been told through sources that Seth MacFarlane has been asked to return as a host, even though back in February he said "no way" to returning, but reportedly is thinking about it.
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.
This past February's Oscars was the most watched entertainment show in the past 3 years bringing in over 40 million viewers and was the second most watched since 2005.
So we see why the Academy wants Seth MacFarlane back for 2014.
