Seth MacFarlane is too busy to host the Oscars in 2014. The multitalented comedian says on Twitter that he ‘‘tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep.’’ MacFarlane, the creator of “Family Guy,” said in his tweet Monday that Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are among the best in the business. Zadan and Meron produced this year’s Oscar show, which earned higher ratings among coveted younger viewers, and will be returning for the 2014 telecast. MacFarlane earned mixed reviews for his outing as Oscars host in February, with some finding his material sexist and anti-Semitic.
