I thought MacFarlane was great, as noted above, but the reviews of him seem to be more negative than not. Not Franco or letterman level bad but not overly positive. I'm surprised
Oh, many columnists think he's juvenile, or at least they say that's what it is. Most of them tend to feed off of gossip and newsfeed buzz, so it's not like they have a leg to stand on there. USA Today said he was self indulgent, which is funny, because the reason many people watch the Oscars is to see what the host is going to do to entertain everyone. You can't really count on what they say, since they get eyes on their page when they're critical. People like to slice and dissect someone into ribbons, even if they laughed the whole night.
So I just enjoyed the show and ignore them.
