ABC Makes Bid For ‘American Idol’
It all makes sense: “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest is now the co-host of ABC’s “Live with Kelly and Ryan” – so why not move the show that made him famous to the alphabet network?
TMZ reported on Tuesday that ABC has made an offer for the one-time most popular show on American television which was canceled last year. ABC wants Ryan Seacrest to host the show and move it to New York City where “Live” is based.
NBC and FOX are also interested in “American Idol” but talks have been stalled.
Fremantle and CORE better make up their minds if they want “American Idol” back on the air. If there is still interest, the time to do this is now. If they wait longer, fans will have completely forgotten about this show already.
