MacFarlane’s Oscar spot is Billy Crystal lite

I have said before and I will repeat it here, I think Seth MacFarlane will do OK hosting the Oscars.
But you have to be too young to remember the Billy Crystal epoch to not find this incredibly lame. Played. What have you. Will he have his “Ted/Family Guy” edge? Or will they neuter him for a big international audience?

I was hoping for an American Ricky Gervais.
This reminds me that I wasn’t crazy about the one-joke “Ted,” and “Family Guy” appears to be an acquired taste for those love their their laughs low, obvious and broad. Bad sign? I hope not.
