    Is Seth MacFarlane the Right Kind of Risky for Oscar?

    In an unexpected move, Academy Award show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have tapped the animation emperor to host the Feb. 24 telecast. While recent choices have been widely panned, are MacFarlane's wide-ranging live experience -- and unabashed naughtiness -- just what the show needs?

    Surprise: Seth MacFarlane Selected To Host The Oscars

    Wow, we didn't expect this. After a brief flirtation with Jimmy Fallon, the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences seem to have found the sweet spot with a presenter who will skew to younger crowds, while keeping ABC happy in getting someone who isn't a direct rival to their late...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Ice Age: Continental Drift' Provides Box Office's Last Gasp Before 'The Dark Knight Rises'

    And lo, there was an 'Ice Age' franchise. “Ice Age: Continental Drift” looks like it will continue the winning tradition of animation studio Blue Sky’s crown jewel, opening at a decent $46 million. Despite the fact that the lead characters of this franchise should be extinct by now, this past-due se...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Ted' & 'Magic Mike' Smash Expectations, Dominate Box Office

    Rareified air.

    Review: Seth MacFarlane's Foul-Mouthed & Hilarious 'Ted' Can't Hide Its Narrative Problems

    The comedic formula practiced, developed and recycled by animation creator Seth MacFarlane on his collection of wildly popular animated shows (“Family Guy,” “American Dad!” and “The Cleveland Show”), is to tell a fairly standard, often hackneyed, sitcom-worthy story, embellish it with omg! "taboo" p...

    New Images Of Mark Wahlberg & Mila Kunis In Seth MacFarlane's 'Ted'

    Can Seth MacFarlane weave the same kind of comedic and money-making magic on the big screen as he has on the small screen? Whether or not you like his brand of comedy which fits somewhere between "The Simpsons" and "South Park" in sensibility, it's undeniable that he's be...

    TV Dial: 'The Office' Cast Might Get A Reboot; Donald Glover To Play Tracy Jordan On '30 Rock'; David Tennant Joins 'Spies Of Warsaw' & More

    Let's fave it, "The Office" hasn't been the same since Steve Carell left the show and frankly, it was already on the decline during his last season. James Spader was kind of wasted as the new David Wallace (of sorts) and Ed Helms' position as the new office manager was constantly undermined by tepid...

    Watch: Seth MacFarlane Goes Hard R In First Trailer For 'Ted' With Mark Wahlberg & Mila Kunis

    Here's the thing about Seth MacFarlane...when "Family Guy" first came on the air, it was a breath of fresh air, an irreverant, rude and very hilarious animated show that took "The Simpsons" template and pushed the envelope even further. And then he didn't really know what...

    Seth MacFarlane To Reboot 'The Flintstones,' Because Life Is A Long, Cruel Series Of Disappointments

    Yabba Dabba Don't"The Flintstones" is a genuine pop culture icon. Sure, it may have been a riff on "The Honeymooners," thankfully stripped of the overtones of domestic violence, but it was also a truly affectionate, witty look at suburban American life, set in a beautifully designed neanderthal worl...
