Rumor has it that Ryan Seacrest is a serious contender for Matt Lauer’s “Today” show seat if Lauer decides to vacate it. Am I the only one or does that seem ridiculous? Ryan Seacrest is adorable as an “American Idol” host, or on E interviewing celebrities, but he doesn’t seem like a newsman to me.
Ok, my husband would say that “Today” is not news, but I completely disagree. More people care about the kind of news reported on “Today” than on the financial news shows that my husband is glued to. I think Lauer should be replaced by somebody a little more newsy than Seacrest. More Anderson Cooper-esque perhaps.
Anyway, I have a perfect solution: Ryan Seacrest could replace Regis be the co-host on “Live with Kelly”. Doesn’t that seem to be a better fit?
One more thing… why does Lauer want to leave? Is he tired of waking up so early? He is so good at his job. I would hate to see him leave. Losing Regis this year was enough of a shock to my morning routine. Please stay put for a while Matt Lauer. A long while.
