    "No way," he tweeted early Tuesday at a fan who asked if he would return. "Lotta fun to have done it, though." Hours later, he said the Oscars is "basically the Kobayashi Maru test." (In Star Trek lingo, the Kobayashi Maru test is a notoriously difficult training exercise given to Starfleet Academy students on the command track.)
    Although MacFarlane received some scathing reviews, this year's Oscars were up 19 percent from last year. Now the question is who should host next year's show? Shatner? Tina Fey and Amy Poehler? James Franco and Anne Hathaway? (Kidding!)
    Sound off with your suggestions below! Are you disappointed that MacFarlane won't be back for another try?
