Ryan Seacrest Set to Renew ‘American Idol’ Contract, but NBCU and E! Future Uncertain

18 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ryan Seacrest is nearing a renewal of his contract with Fox's “American Idol,” individuals with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap. He's also looking to expand his role with Clear Channel Communications, while his role at NBCUniversal will probably decrease. Despite reports that state otherwise, Seacrest will sign a deal for two more years with the singing competition, despite its flagging ratings. A host of the competition since its 2002 debut, the contract renewal would take Seacrest through Season 15. Representatives for producers 19 Entertainment and Fox had no comment on the negotiations.

Ryan Seacrest Nears Deal To Continue On ‘American Idol’, Likely To Stay In NBCU Fold

22 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Ryan Seacrest will split his allegiances on May 1 when Fox‘s American Idol, which he hosts, airs against NBC‘s iHeartRadio Music Awards, which his company produces with Clear Channel. The programs involve all three of Seacrest’s major employers: Fox, where he has been making $15 million a year hosting Idol; NBCUniversal, where he has a wide-ranging deal spanning Today, the Olympics and E!; and Clear Channel, where he has his radio show and has been involved in the iHeartRadio franchise as host and producer. Two of the three deals — the Fox and NBCU ones — are coming up in the next few weeks, while the Clear Channel radio pact has another year on it. It seems neither Fox nor NBC has objections to Seacrest promoting programs that compete against each other as both companies are looking to extend their relationship with him. Seacrest is near a deal with Fox to continue on Idol, »

Ryan Seacrest Nears New 'American Idol' Deal, In Talks for Bigger Clear Channel Role

18 April 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Ryan Seacrest is zeroing in on his next chapter. Hollywood's hardest working multihyphenate is said to be considering some significant changes to a portfolio that reportedly earns him $61 million annually. While gigs including American Idol and his morning radio show are likely to continue, sources familiar with his ongoing discussions suggest others, such as E! red carpet duty, will come to an end. As part of that strategic reshuffling, he's expected to expand his role with Clear Channel and continue to amp up his presence in the start-up community.   The most lucrative part of Seacrest's portfolio is likely to

'American Idol' Recap: Dexter Roberts Sent Home, Kevin Bacon Steps In For Ryan Seacrest

17 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

American Idol’s results show Thursday started off with a surprise twist – The Following star Kevin Bacon stepping into Ryan Seacrest’s hosting shoes to kick off the night.

American Idol Recap

After Bacon passed the torch back to Seacrest, the top seven finalists were shown chatting about their performances and shared what they’d most like to do with a brand new Ford Mustang. Then, finally, the show got around to hearing Randy Jackson’s personal recap of Wednesday night.

Jackson, basically parroting the judges, mentioned Dexter Robert’s desperate need to make the songs he chooses his own. The former judge had similar advice for Cj Harris and wondered if Jess Meuse – who was harshly critiqued by the judges Wednesday – had done enough onstage to get America’s votes. Alex Preston, Sam Woolf, Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene, according to Jackson, would likely all be safe.

Stress is expected on elimination nights at American Idol, and this Thursday was no exception. After judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. gave rave reviews to most of the Top 7 during Wednesday night's performance show, it was anyone's guess who would be sent home from the Fox reality singing competition this week. The tension in the studio was palpable, as host Ryan Seacrest began to reveal which contestants had been voted into the Top 6. Warning: Spoiler ahead!Eventually, only Jessica Meuse, and Dexter Roberts were left in jeopardy of being sent home by America's votes, with Roberts »

American Idol 2014 Eliminated Dexter Roberts Tonight,April 17th

17 April 2014 6:59 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Tonight's elimination episode, kicked off with host, Ryan Seacrest,acting legend Kevin Bacon, and the judges, waisting a lot of time with some "behind the scenes" footage of the final contestants and some other stuff that made me zone out. Luckily, Fox has given them only 30 minutes to wrap things up,so it wasn't long before they had to look at the recap footage of Jena Irene,Alex Preston,and Dexter Roberts, so Ryan could tell us that Dexter had indeed landed in the bottom 2 this week for vote-getting. After a break, they looked at recap footage for Caleb Johnson,Cj Harris,Sam Woolf, and Jessica Meuse. Then Ryan revealed that all them were safe except for Jessica, so she joined Dexter on the bottom 2 stools. Finally, after the last break, Ryan revealed that Jessica was safe, which of course, meant that Dexter Roberts was next on America's hit list tonight. »

17 April 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

And the cuts just keep on coming! Before we get into that, does any one else think that it was beyond random that Kevin Bacon opened tonight's live results show of American Idol? We love Bacon, and we know that he's the star of Fox's The Following, (which we love!) but we would have never guessed that surprise appearance in a million years. But hey, we ain't mad at it. We love bacon in any form we can get. Anyways back to the competition: The top seven sang their hearts out this week, but as usual, American was tasked with kicking one of our finalists out of the running for season 13's crown. So who were in the bottom two this week? Host Ryan Seacrest revealed it the two singers with »

'American Idol' Recap: Kevin Bacon Surprises on Results Night

17 April 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The top seven finalists of American Idol left their fates in each other's hands with a theme of "competitor's picks," but one contestant fell short of his goal and ran out of luck on his journey. Thursday night's half-hour segment kicked off with yet another left-field celebrity cameo, as actor Kevin Bacon filled in for Ryan Seacrest with the show's opener. His appearance gave the remaining singers of Season 13 an unexpected perk: They can now link themselves to Bacon in the infamous six degrees of separation game.

Keith Urban Talks American Idol's Fierce Competition: "It's The Hunger Games"—Watch Now!

17 April 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

One is a competition designed to find the next singing sensation. The other is a ruthless battle of survival. However, if you're talking with American Idol judge Keith Urban, he believes these two events are exactly the same. The country star recently sat with host Ryan Seacrest in an exclusive behind-the-scenes interview for E! News, and Urban revealed that the competition is really starting to heat up between the remaining Idol contestants. "There's friendliness, but you've got the rivalry too. Let's not deny it, it is The Hunger Games," the judge revealed. As the group of Idol hopefuls gets smaller and smaller, Keith spilled that "based on consistency" he knows exactly which three »

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 13 - Top 7 Results

17 April 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Once again, it's like this: Assuming Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson and Alex "New Hampshire's Own" Preston are safe on Thursday (April 17) night's "American Idol," I don't much care who goes home or who's in the Bottom 3.  There are the three people I care about and the cannon fodder. The big question: How is "American Idol" planning on killing the 30 minutes tonight? For the second straight week, Fox hasn't bothered to announce a guest performer, which either means that the producers decided they were happily able to fill the half-hour without a musical number, or they're having trouble booking guests. I have no evidence to confirm the latter. So... Who knows? On to the recap! 9:00 p.m. Et. Forget what I said about no guests, because... Kevin Bacon! He's introducing the show and trying to remind us that he has a TV show. A TV show on Fox! A TV »

17 April 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

I was still waiting for the big hurrah," Lovato told Ryan Seacrest in a behind-the-scenes interview for E! News. But there was one contestant who stood out above the rest for Lovato: Jena Irene. "She's really good. She's a star for sure," Lovato said. Lovato »
