After hosting the 85th Annual Academy Awards, Seth MacFarlane drew his fair share of fans and critics.
But the Family Guy creator won't return to the stage to host next year's show, he revealed in a series of Tweets on Monday.
"Traumatized critics exhale: I'm unable to do the Oscars again. Tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep," he wrote.

Meryl Streep received universal acclaim and an Oscar – her third – for her portrayal of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher in the 2011 biopic The Iron Lady. PEOPLE's critic raved at the time that Streep's turn was more "channeling" than impersonation.
On Monday, after the news broke that Thatcher had died at 87 following a stroke, the actress was quick to point out that, in reality, Thatcher was a complex woman she barely knew – and a woman with a complicated legacy.
"Margaret Thatcher was a pioneer, willingly or unwillingly, for the role of women in politics," Streep said in a statement. "It is hard to imagine a part of our current history that has not been affected by measures she put forward in the U.K. at the end of the 20th century. Her hard-nosed fiscal measures took a toll on the poor, and her hands-off approach to financial regulation led to great wealth for others. There is an argument that her steadfast, almost emotional loyalty to the pound sterling has helped the U.K. weather the storms of European monetary uncertainty."

Clearly, the country has become enamored with this year's Best Actress winner, Jennifer Lawrence. And if Bradley Cooper wasn't charmed by her already, now he has plenty to love about her.
"I feel like all I've been doing lately is setting him up," Lawrence, 22, told MTV of her Silver Linings Playbook costar.
But interest in the actor (PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive in 2012) is so great that the actress has had to strategize.
"I was like, 'You know what? I'm going to save time, I'm going to get you a booklet of pictures of my friends and you just go through and pick them out,' " she joked. "Because this is getting exhausting for me."
