Would you watch American Idol without Ryan Seacrest? I saw today that Ryan's deal with American Idol is almost up and that he probably will not get that same $15M a year he has been getting the past three years. They will want him to take a pay cut to stay on the show and I think they should tell him $5M a year or we will get someone in here and pay them $1M a year and they will be thrilled. Maybe it is because he is on the radio here every morning, and on E! News, but I feel like I am overwhelmed with Ryan Seacrest and whether or not I watch American Idol has nothing to do with him but rather if I am willing to make the commitment for longer than the audition rounds and spend week after week investing my time into the contestants and the show. Ryan does not play a part in that for me. I am still unsure if he would be good on Today which is where it is rumored he is heading. Right now I am leaning towards he is not a good fit. He would have been good in that Larry King slot and he is great at radio and obviously has found the golden touch when it comes to dealing with porn stars and their families for his reality shows. What do you think? Do you need Ryan on AI?
