Kelly Ripa And American Idol Wasn't The Reason ABC Hired Ryan Seacrest

Aware that they will be fighting for guests, the former American Idol host has cooked up a plan to beat Kelly and reign supreme in the 9 AM time slot.

But Kelly wasn't prepared to give up without a fight and vowed to do whatever she could to make it possible for her co-host to work on both their show and the talent contest. I had said at the end of the series 'Goodbye for now, ' hoping somewhere it would come back and it was rumoured to be going back to other networks. We haven't gotten that far. He is moving to NY for the new role, while Idol has always been shot in Los Angeles.

In a new report from Variety, the publication reveals that ABC executives and producers at FremantleMedia and Core Media Group, who own the rights to Idol, have reached a deal to bring back the series.

So I think it take a lot of the burden off of her, because she's been doing this alone for the past year. "I had no idea it was being talked about coming here". "So what I do know is, apparently it's unofficial but very close to being said it will be here". We try to create shows. ABC entered exclusive negotiations with producers Friday evening, fending off a last-second bid by Fox, which canceled the show amid declining ratings previous year. Since then the show has become a staple of reality singing competitions by producing stars such as Carrie Underwood, Adam Lambert and David Cook. The first show will air live that day and the second will be recorded to air Tuesday, June 6.

ABC is expected to announce the return of American Idol this month at its upfront presentation in NY, reported by Variety.
