There’s no one quite like Ryan Seacrest, which is precisely why FOX is trying so hard to keep him as the host of ‘American Idol.’ Seacrest’s $45 million contract is up for renewal, but it’s possible that he won’t be returning to run the hit singing competition.
An American tradition is back this weekend. The New Year's Eve Ball Drop in Times Square has been happening for over a century.
Since its first drop in 1908, the ball has has several makeovers. The latest, in honor of its 100th anniversary, debuted in 2008. But when most Americans think about the New Year's Ball Drop, they also think of Dick Clark.
For months, NBC has been denying reports that Matt Lauer will leave its morning talk fest "Today." But rumors have persisted, and "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest is said to be the first choice of some Peacock executives as a replacement.
However, there are two major roadblocks.
Ryan Seacrest is apparently the most powerful man in reality television.
So says The Hollywood Reporter, who ranked the 'American Idol' and radio host number one on its fourth annual Reality Power List.
Seacrest, who is poised to make over $55 million this year, according to PopEater, ironically dethroned former 'Idol' judge Simon Cowell, who dropped to number six on this year's list.
The countdown for the Oscars has begun. The big question of course is, what movie should win best picture? My pick is still 'The King's Speech' with Colin Firth. It's a great movie and Colin Firth is one of my favorites.
I am so glad that Hollywood Week is starting on American Idol. Usually, I enjoy the auditions, but this season it felt long and tedious to me. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez put so many undeserving contestants through at the start of the auditions, that I began to get frustrated.
