"After defending his performance, the producers reached out to Seth
and invited him back to host the show again. He's not sure if he's going to do it, but he has to decide within the next couple of weeks."
The Family Guy creator has previously said that he wouldn't host the Oscars again, but perhaps he may be changing his tune.
While some critics chastised Seth MacFarlane's performance at the 85th Annual Academy Awards, the ratings were up significantly from last year's Academy Awards, with 40.3 million viewers tuning into the telecast.
The Academy Awards episode 62.1, "The 86th Annual Academy Awards" stars Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto, Emma Watson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kristen Bell, Amy Adams.
