Goddamnit, Seth MacFarlane: Stop Making Me Like You. It's Pissing Me Off

You know, I was happy guy, content to loathe Seth MacFarlane for the rest of my life, to lump him in with the Max Tuckers of the word and throw a tire around them and set it alight. Have I watched a lot of "The Family Guy" or "American Dad"? No, not really. I've seen bits and blobs of it, and they seemed like shows trying way too hard to get a rise out of people. But that hasn't stopped me from judging MacFarlane harshly. I mean: LOOK AT HIM. Ninety-nine of out of 100 times, that's the kind of face that belongs to someone that I'm going to strongly dislike.

But then Ted came along, and you have no idea, people, how much I looked forward to shredding that film like a sock puppet made of used panties in a pit bull's mouth. But hell if the damn movie didn't provoke laughter. And not just the nods of appreciation, but full-on get-up-get-down-roll-around-the-floor-and-piss-myself laughter. MADDENING.

But I was still OK writing it off, because look at what Seth MacFarlane represents! Douchefuckery! I've got it in my mind that he's a date-rape comedian, and I can't let it go. Is it backed by any real evidence? Well, now. But come on: LOOK AT HIM. When Khaleesi starting dating him, my first thought was not that Seth MacFarlane might be a good dude, after all, but that Khaleesi might have ingested some chemicals with that horse heart. Oh, Khaleesi. How could you?

But you know what? He was charming, and cutting, and self-effacing in handing out Oscar nominations yesterday with Emma Stone, and I actually had the thought -- fleeting as it was -- that MacFarlane might be a great Oscar host. And now he's released his first slew of Oscar promos, and none of them makes me want to cause malicious harm to him. In fact, they are OK! I mean, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are going to blow him out of the water as Golden Globes hosts this weekend, but I think MacFarlane may actually make watching the Oscars totally and completely tolerable this year. And that thought is seriously pissing me off.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
