Comedian Seth MacFarlane said yesterday that he would not host the star-studded Academy Awards ceremony again, after TV critics panned Sunday's show.


MacFarlane's response came after TV critics slammed the telecast, condemning his vulgar jokes, adding that he was too boring and dull.


While some critics lashed out at MacFarlane's hosting, others placed more blame on the overall song-and-dance-heavy show, produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, which ran for 3 1/2 hours.
