'Idol' Without Ryan Seacrest

Crazy Enough to Work?

Ryan Seacrest is a wanted man at "Today" and "American Idol" -- but since he probably can't do both, we're wondering ... could 'Idol' could survive without ole frosty tips? Some people think so ... but you gotta hear who they'd put in his place!

Plus, hat policy in Congress?? Believe it or not some of your elected reps are actually wasting time on this! And tattooing your lover's name on your body -- romantic or stupid? Put us down for ... stupid.

Of course Nigel will expect boy toy favors from Ryan. Nigel should donate tat $ to charity.
Ryan is nothing more than a stain on AI!

NO, I wouldn't watch American Idol, with or without Seacrest. Seacrest sucks, but so does American Idol.

Ryan Seacrest is replaceable. It's time for him to see the other side of the mountain.

J-lo's presence is the main reason I have no interest in watching AI, although I think Ryan is replaceable too. Maybe the ratings were higher for AI, but X-factor was SO much better. It'll be interesting to see how this year goes in terms of ratings for both shows.

Ryan Seacrest is awful. AI would be better without him.

Since I never wasted my time watching the show with him on it, I doubt I'll watch it if and when he leaves.

Well, since you asked....I don't normally watch American Idol...at least not in recent years. If/when I do, whether Seacrest is there or not hardly matters. The show is about the talent AND the judges. Who announces each set, the guests or commercial breaks hardly matters.
