Ryan Seacrest Getting Dumped By American Idol?!

| Filed under: American IdolRyan Seacrest

ryan seacrest out for american idol

Who else out there wants to break up with Ryan Seacrest??

After his relationship with Julianne Hough came to an end just recently, his even longer relationship with American Idol might be headed down the same, sad path!

Someone buy the man some Ben & Jerry's!

Although he’s been the host for a bajillion seasons, his time might be coming to an end as Idol is struggling with ratings like Lindsay Lohan struggles with…everything.

And even though Ryan has become somewhat the face of Idol, his days on top might be numbered in order to freshen things up - again - as a source revealed:

“Producers and TV executives are very concerned about how much lower the show can actually fall. This is bad news. Very bad news … When you are getting beat by Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal in the demo, changes have to be made … One suggestion is going back to square one and finding two industry insider judges, like Simon [Cowell] and Randy [Jackson] were during season one, plus, a Paula Abdul type – someone in the industry past his or her prime. This way they can turn the judges into stars rather than the other way around. Another radical idea is going back to how the show began and finding a young host that isn’t yet a household name. It would save the show a lot of money.”

Holy shake up!!

Considering the high-paid judges haven’t boosted ratings, we’re not surprised to hear they might dump them, but Ryan?!

What would he do without Idol??

Oh wait…we’re sure he’ll be fine!

    I'll try watching it when he leaves. Hopefully he won't have to go out with "Girlfriends" anymore.

    Wtf does Lohan have to do with this story? You sound like a Republican that has to throw Obama in every news story

    If a show's reaching the possible end of its natural life, you could hardly blame Seacrest for the sputter. Just for some of the current big bucks outlay. They could try the no name version. Who knows.

  4. 4

    just get rid of the entire show and everyone associated with it.

  5. 5

    Three to four judges, Ryan, and a bunch of kids singing the same songs. All the other shows do the same thing so to answer your question, people are just tired of singing competitions.

  6. 6

    Nikki and Mariah make no sense to me

  7. 7

    This show should END for good.

    Why the fuck did you have to throw in that little sly comment using Lindsay Lohans name again….. FUCKING pathetic. Write some real stories, and if you are writing about a story you tard make sure you STAY ON TOPIC and dont let that little small mind of yours start dreaming and thinking about lindsay lohan like the little bitch you are being. If i was Lindsay Lohans dad id track ya down and knock your head around a few times. SORRY FOR GOING OFF TOPIC ha ha ha……………

    Don't think he's the problem it's the judges it just got boring without Simon

  10. Ky says – reply to this


    Idol needs to end. Come on now! Firing Ryan???

  11. shanghai says – reply to this


    Think Ryan is an asset and a constant but maybe he should think of leaving the sinking ship before it goes down.

  12. Britstarz says – reply to this


    This story is completely fabricated as the producer already said publicly that everyone is replaceable EXCEPT Seacrest. I read the article on YOUR website. It's the judges that are the problem. I love Nikki's music but she is the hands down worst judge on any of these shows. When she talks she sounds really unintelligent.

  13. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    He belongs on OUT T.V. ……

  14. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    To bring up the ratings, they should show Gyneth Paltrow attempting to take a sh*t after eating her dinner of lettuce leaves and carrot shavings ………..

  15. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    Maybe they should have Pervez Hilton as a Judge ! He would be real good …………….'blah !!!!!!'

  16. MAMANELLE5 says – reply to this


    They need to rid themselves of that Nicki person. She's a clown!!!!

  17. Zazza Black says – reply to this


    I agree with you! Nikki and Mariah are useless, inarticulate twits! Ryan's not to blame.

  18. Okie says – reply to this


    Ryan is the ONLY good part of the show. The judges are mean and suck. I quit watching it because of them. If Ryan goes so does the show….RIP Idol

  19. ladydi says – reply to this


    I'll never understand his popularity. Granted, he can be witty but he is so not cute and there is something about his personality that just grates on my nerves. He's why I stopped watching American Idol.

  20. Lynda says – reply to this


    Get rid of him. He is the main reason I won't watch Idol. The reason? One word: Kardashians.

  21. Dara says – reply to this


    I don't think the problem is with Seacrest. Honestly, I can't stand Nikki Manaj…she is nasty and rude, and not even funny. I stopped watching cause I just couldn't take one more minute of her stroking her disgusting hair. Also, it is clear that Mariah and Nikki do not get along. Kieth is okay and Randy is the DAWG. The show was great, even with Tyler and Lopez. Ryan is one of the best in the business and does an amazing job. Unfortunately, I don't think they got it right this season wit the judges…..it may be time to hang it up AI…but, not because of Seacrest…….

  22. Marlene Emmett says – reply to this


    I hope that Ryan won't leave Idol~AND I hope that he & Julianne will get back together
    They were a cute couple, and she grounded Ryan.

    The only person I really want GONE IS Nikki Minag!!!!
    Bring back Steven Tyler or bring in Nichole Sherzinger?

  23. Marisa says – reply to this


    Ryan is not the problem with idol. Look at what happened with the kid Charlie Ryan is the only host could have handled a sticky situation with class. However if idol execs are that stupid to get rid of Ryan I have a feeling Simon is ready to sign Ryan to host X Factor. They were already discussing a guest hosting gig.

    Re: Marlene Emmett – bitch swerve

  25. Nada Collata says – reply to this


    Seacrest is the reason why I REFUSE to watch Idol (or anything else that he hosts), so I would be delighted if he left.

  26. lamammadellamamma says – reply to this


    I have been a fan of Idol since the first season. Ryan Seacrest needs to stay in my opinion. He has great communication skills and usually saves the day when the judges get stuck and fumble around trying to find words. Seacrest is good with the contestants, shows some emathy. Keith Urban is great as was Steven Tyler and they had good chemistry with Randy Jackson. The current panel has no chemistry. Keith and Randy are carrying the show with Ryan. Keith is very strong I and would like to see him stay but am guessing that with his busy career he will elect to move on. I would like to see Ryan, Randy, Steven Tyler or Keith Urban, and one female winner from past Idol seasons. Only three judges. Steven Tyler has excellent communication skills. He livened things up a bit and was very good at drawing the best from the contestants.

    BRING BACK BRIAN DUNKLEMAN! Anyone remember him from Season 1 when he co-hosted with Seacrest!

    The show should end. It's had a good run, but it's just time.

    [re=6368323]Re: Okie[/re I totally agree with you……………if Ryan goes, so goes the show. He is a real professional, keeps things moving. I think he is spectacular, but I may be prejudiced since I am from Atlanta as well.

  31. Krysta says – reply to this


    Where in the hell in those quotes does it state that they'd consider getting rid of Ryan? Perez you need to learn to read the facts and do research before spouting out this crap! I thought you were getting better at this? BTW Nigel made it abundantly clear he would not get rid of Ryan. The show would end before they let Ryan go. Who else can handle the contestants with such ease and comfort? You put a complete stranger in the hosting job and they will get eaten alive! Ratings will drop to single digits and bye bye show. In other words, Ryan IS the American Idol!

  32. michael harrison says – reply to this


    dump nicki menaj - keith urban is great but nicki comes off as an oversexed slut looking to bang the contestant male or female i don't feel she has the expertise to judge singers who are more takented than her - i like mariah but Randy Dawg why don't you start talking like someone your age you are knowlegable but grow up - maybe changing Days or Time slots or do encores -Ryan has been around awhile and i'm sure the 65 mil he is earning will soften the blow some the smartest move though was Keith Urban

  33. Janice says – reply to this


    Ryan is the only good thing left of the original show. Keith is the best part of what is now the new set up. Mariah is better than I had expected, but not specific enough. Randy is what he always was a boring guy with no real talent with the English language. Jimmy Iovine is a useless piece there.
    If Ryan goes. It is all over but the funeral.

  34. Eilee says – reply to this


    Lose ryan seacrest; He thins the show is about him and not the contestant

  35. allan says – reply to this


    Re: Eilee – screw you he is a gentle person and he cares a lot of the contestants

  36. Giliana says – reply to this


    I think Idol is over and done with. It hasn't been the same since the original judges changed. It is, IMO, the worst of the reality singing shows. The Voice has taken its place. I think Seascrest is a good host, but same old becomes boring, after such a long time.

  37. Janice says – reply to this


    There is no way they will get rid of him, he is the star of the show in my book, although I do love simon and randy,,mariah and keith too! If he does leave it's b/c he wants to! Thanks
