Rumors have been swirling that American Idol host, E! red carpet host, radio show host and television producer Ryan Seacrest may be replacing Regis Philbin on LIVE. Now the Globe has a front page spread shouting from the rooftops that Seacrest, who has filled in for Regis on multiple occasions, is close to becoming Philbin's successor.
According to The Globe:
“Ryan would be the perfect successor to Regis. He’s subbed several times for Larry King on his CNN talk show, he has his own syndicated morning radio gig, hosts the biggest show on TV, and does special events and red carpet coverage for E! Entertainment Network.”
“The whole focus now is on Ryan to take over,” a show source reveals to the Globe. “They’ll have to think really big bucks to get him to sign on the dotted line.”
Personally, if Seacrest were to take over at LIVE it would be the last time I watched the show so I thought, why not put it up as a poll?
Would you quit watching LIVE if Seacrest succeeded Regis?
