The search for the next Oscars host starts ... now!
Seth MacFarlane, who hosted this year's ceremony, tweeted on Monday that he will not be returning for a second shot next year.
Another May weekend, another deluge of season finales — though none are likely to blow the mind with as much daring, panache and imaginative fervor as BBC America's gloriously inventive Doctor Who (Saturday, 8/7c), which signs off until next time-travel with one of its trippiest yet emotionally powerful episodes to date. Steven Moffat's typically clever script, brimming with colorful incident and characters grandly heroic or villainous, finds a nifty way to salute the 50-year history of Doctors as we learn more about the impossibly irrepressible companion Clara (the smashing Jenna-Louise Coleman), first seen in a cosmic haze — "I don't know where I am ... Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once" — with only one constant to guide her: "I have to save the Doctor." That same impulse prompts lizard lady Vastra, her wife Jenny and the stalwart Strax to summon Clara to a psychic conference call, interrupted by the menacing "Whisper Men" (reminiscent of the ghoulish Gentlemen from Buffy's classic "Hush" episode).
All together now: Jeah! Ryan Lochte will be back on your TV screens Sunday — sometimes in a Speedo, sometimes not — with his E! reality show What Would Ryan Lochte Do? (10/9c).
The eight-episode series follows the 11-time Olympic medalist as he searches for his one true love ("Maybe there's something wrong with me," he says in one episode), parties with his friends, hangs out with his family, attempts to launch a fashion line, competes in swimming meets and trains for the 2016 Rio Olympics in his home base of...
Fox has pulled a March episode of Family Guy after a mash-up of clips made the series look like it was portraying a bombing at the Boston Marathon.
In the clip, which has nearly 140,000 views on YouTube, a scene from the March 17 episode, "Turban Cowboy," depicts Peter Griffin accidentally blowing up a bridge while using a terrorist's cell phone. However, the clip places that scene directly after an unrelated one, in which Bob Costas asks Peter Griffin how he won the Boston Marathon.

Jimmy Fallon, Michelle Obama
This week, the Oscars happened! Host Seth MacFarlane's opening monologue, which featured the musical number "We Saw Your Boobs," sent lots of people into a tizzy, and Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence gave a backstage press conference that charmed the masses. First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and taught everyone the nuances of "mom dancing," and a basketball cheerleader sunk a you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it shot from half court. Check out those clips and more in this week's Top Videos:

After Seth MacFarlane's mediocre turn as Oscars host on Sunday — and his subsequent refusal to do it again — many suggested Golden Globes co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take on the gig next year.

Seth MacFarlane and William Shatner
So what did I really think?
Yes, I was the byline on the faux Oscars review William Shatner showed to host Seth MacFarlane in the opening number on Sunday's telecast ("Seth MacFarlane Worst Oscar Host Ever").
I didn't know it was coming. I was watching the show at home with my wife. Staring at the byline, it took a few seconds to absorb that it was being seen by an audience of one billion viewers — a nice jump over the 12.8 million people who see each issue of TV Guide Magazine. After my name appeared a second time, every electronic device in our apartment was ringing, buzzing, pinging or vibrating...
