Ryan Seacrest is rumored to have turned down American Idol 2017

Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest are heading to Niagara Falls, Ontario next month and you have a chance to see them live!

The insider went on to explain: "ABC are going to WAR with NBC over guest bookings.One of the main reasons he got the job was because his connections can destroy Megyn".

Ripa responded by imploring him, "Yes you can!" and assuring him that she would lighten his "Live" prep responsibilities for episodes following "Idol" shoots. I like it a lot.

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.

"Whatever you want. You're my work wife!" "No, I don't know about that part yet", the E! We got Ryan and GF Shayna in NYC Saturday night and he certainly didn't shut down the possibility of hosting the show again.

'This was news to me last week. "I had said at the end of the series, "Goodbye for now" - hoping somewhere it would come back". "So what I do know is, apparently it's unofficial but very close to being said it will be here".

However, he went on to add that with his busy work schedule at Live and with his radio show, he might not be able to resume the hosting gig that made him a megastar, which was not what Ripa wanted to hear at all. "I say yes and bow to you", he said to her, laughing.

Ripa then eagerly jumped up and down in her chair and told her 42-year-old co-host, "Yes you can!"

"I know! You came and auditioned with the original judges and I'll never forget that", Seacrest noted with a laugh. "I don't know if I can host it". I understand it's hard doing double duty - you've got the radio show, you've got this. You've got the radio show, you've got this, but your nights are free. you can do this.

"On the days where it is the day after, you won't even have to think".
