American Idol is still in hot demand!

As we've reported, the possibility of a reboot of the classic singing competition has been discussed between networks like NBC and FOX – and now we're hearing ABC has entered the bidding war!

According to TMZ, the network contacted Fremantle (the company that produces AI) last week to place an offer to buy the hit show in hopes of a March 2018 premiere.

This is especially interesting considering ABC knew Ryan Seacrest would be joining Kelly Ripa in New York… and now they're also wanting him to come back to finding the Kelly Clarksons of the world!

Seacrest… back IN?!

Since Fremantle says it's a "no go" for production to move to NYC, we really don't know how Ryan would be able to do both the talk show and the reality show. But who knows — it's Ryan.

Word is Fremantle is going back to negotiations with Core, the co-owner of American Idol, to figure out next steps.

Would U like to see AI come back to the small screen?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Ryan Seacrest Tapped As Kelly Ripa's New Live! Cohost!

kelly ripa picks ryan seacrest live cohost

UPDATE 5/1/2017 9:10 A.M. EST: It's official! Ryan was announced as Kelly's new cohost during the show this morning!



We should've seen this casting coming.

As you may've heard, Kelly Ripa is slated to introduce her new Live! cohost today (May 1). And while the pint-sized TV personality has yet to confirm the news herself, CNN reports that her new partner in crime is none other than Ryan Seacrest. Yup, the hosting King is heading to New York in order to fill the big shoes Michael Strahan left behind.

In case you forgot, last year Strahan announced he would be leaving the morning show so that he could take on a full time position at Good Morning America. Nonetheless, Miz Ripa was in no rush to find Michael's replacement as she had a slew of A-list guest cohosts for about a year — including Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Patrick Harris, Dwyane Wade, and others. We mean, Seacrest was even tapped several times to sit by Ripa's side while she searched for the right copilot. Well, it looks like the hunt is finally over. Phew!

Thankfully, Ryan has plenty of hosting experience on his resume as he hosted American Idol for years, has his own radio show (On Air with Ryan Seacrest), AND is the face of New Year's Rockin' Eve. In fact, we're kind of surprised that he has time to take on Live!. LOLz!

Regardless, we couldn't be happier for Ryan and Kelly on their new professional partnership. Squeeee!

Drama Brews! Apparently Michael Strahan's Special 'Treatment' On GMA Is Pissing Off His Cohosts!

Michael Strahan can't seem to escape that daytime drama!

The former athlete notoriously blindsided Kelly Ripa last year by quitting Live! for a full time job on Good Morning America — and it looks like tensions may have followed him to his new time slot.

Sources are claiming that Strahan has been getting special treatment since joining the ABC morning show, and his fellow GMA anchors are sick of it!

According to Page Six, producers have been giving the affable anchor extra opportunities, while the veteran cohosts are left in the dust. An insider said:

"They roll out the carpet for [Strahan] while seasoned talent is treated like dirt. He's been given a lot of opportunity, flexibility, when the others who have been working there longer don't get that kind of treatment."

Some of this treatment could be Strahan signing a special deal that allows him to continue analyzing football at Fox NFL Sunday and to host ABC's $100,000 Pyramid.

But Strahan's additional GMA assignments are leaning on other anchors' territories — namely pop anchor Lara Spencer, who "feels like her role has been minimized with Strahan." The source added:
