ryan seacrest might still do american idol

Is this even possible??

As we previously reported, American Idol is eyeing a comeback on ABC, rather than on its former network FOX. Obviously, many people can't imagine the singing competition returning to the small screen without the show's longtime host, Ryan Seacrest. The only the problem is, Mr. Seacrest lives in NYC now because of his new Live! gig with Kelly Ripa.

And while it seems impossible for the 42-year-old to sign onto ANOTHER job, it's said ABC has reached out to the production company behind AI and asked if the reality show could be based in NYC this time around. Huh.

Shit is getting deep on Live!

Kelly Ripa didn't hold back on Wednesday when she asked her new cohost Ryan Seacrest if he's ever popped the question to a significant other before.

The 42-year-old, who is currently linked to model Shayna Terese Taylor, responded by saying that he once was super close to getting engaged, but didn't go through with it:

"I did get close and I didn't do it and it was the right move. But I love the idea — and I know you're going to ask me — of marriage because my parents have been married for 47 years, and so I have this thing — and you've been married 21."

As you know, Kelly recently entered the second DECADE of marriage with husband Mark Consuelos. So amazing!

But for Ryan, he says he's hopeful that it will happen for him one day. Meanwhile, his ex Julianne Hough is preparing to tie the knot to hockey player Brooks Laich. Poor guy.

ABC Has Entered The Bidding War For American Idol!

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!
