The more things change, the more they stay the same!
TMZ is reporting this morning that American Idol is headed to ABC with Ryan Seacrest as the likely host, a confirmation of speculation the entire TV world has been making for the better part of a week now!
Apparently, with ABC getting the full deal to re-boot the show — which could air beginning early next year — they wanted Seacrest to host the whole thing, and the show’s owners were completely on board to have the very familiar TV host join up!
The final announcement should come next week at upfronts, according to reports.
Of course, with Seacrest’s new Live! gig, that means he’ll have to do two round-trip, coast-to-coast flights in two days every week to film the show’s episodes in Hollywood and then hoof it back to NYC for his day time gig.
What a life!
