So, how does it feel to have your name dropped before a billion people?

Surprising, says TV Guide business editor Stephen Battaglio, who was part of the lively opening exchange between Oscar host Seth MacFarlane and intruder from the future William Shatner.

In a spoof (and a screen grab), the Star Trek captain showed the Family Guy guy what would be his upcoming review from Battaglio.

"I didn't know it was coming," Battaglio writes on TV Guide's website. "I was watching the show at home with my wife. Staring at the byline, it took a few seconds to absorb."



And once it did, he says, "every electronic device in our apartment was ringing, buzzing, pinging or vibrating."
