Seth MacFarlane predicts next year's Oscar hosts

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey to host Oscars?

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Seth MacFarlane is sure this will be his only time hosting the Oscars and he already has an idea who his replacements will be.

MacFarlane says it's "very likely" that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will get the job.

They got raves for hosting the Golden Globes. MacFarlane says preparing to host the Oscars is hard work.

He says he doesn't like "working 150 hours a week."

He's continuing to voice the characters in "Family Guy" and "American Dad" while preparing for the Oscars.

He says it's "very vocally taxing" because there's a lot of screaming and yelling. He admits he's "a little exhausted."
