Jezebel editor-in-chief Jessica Coen quipped that she couldn't stand the faces he made:
I really can't wait for 2.5 hours of watching Seth MacFarlane make his post-joke smugface over and over and over again.— Jessica Coen (@jessicacoen) January 10, 2013
The Atlantic's Entertainment section has some thoughts on his tone:
And a lot of people were completely unamused by a joke he made about Hitler
In fairness, MacFarlane did have a fair number of defenders as well
On a related note, MacFarlane himself had this to say late last night ...
... Which sparked perhaps the newsiest Twitter-related part of him hosting: Emma Stone sending out a rare tweet.
Just a heads up, @stonenobrien, I'm a cranky bastard at 5 a.m.— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) January 10, 2013
@sethmacfarlane Me too. Oh boy.— Emma Stone (@stonenobrien) January 10, 2013
