Los Angeles: Having garnered a mixed reaction to his performance as the Oscars host this year, comic Seth MacFarlane has said he won`t take up the daunting task again.

The `Ted` helmer who tackled the prestigious duty last Sunday, February 24 would say "no way" if he`s offered the job again, reported Aceshowbiz.

"No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though," the 39-year-old `Family Guy` creator tweeted when a fan asked, "Would you host the #Oscars again if asked?"

MacFarlane`s Oscars hosting stint was not free from criticism. Some TV critics slammed him for making risky jokes about female nudity, zingers, gays and Jews.

In the opening sketch, MacFarlane poked fun at himself by letting `Star Trek` actor William Shatner blast him for being "the worst Oscar host ever."

The latest group of people who criticized MacFarlane were a handful of top female lawmakers in the California Legislature, who said that the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences "struck a new low in its treatment of women" by hiring the Kent-born actor as the host.
