RYAN SEACREST talked about the possibility of American Idol returning on "Live with Kelly and Ryan" yesterday. He claimed that he hadn't heard anything about "Idol" coming to ABC until a few days ago, which is a little hard to believe . . . since it's his old show, and it's his new network, and it's very convenient timing.
Yes, this is yet ANOTHER potential job for Ryan, who's almost at the point where he'll have to find a way to SIMULTANEOUSLY work at two jobs at once. You know, since there are only 24 hours in a day. Kelly Ripa was VERY excited about Ryan's latest side hustle, which is kind of interesting since she lost her last host to a side gig last year.
Today, ABC has officially picked up the rights to the singing competition for next season.
