Former 'Idol' Co-Host Reacts to Ryan Seacrest's Joke

“But it was a joke, and whether it was mean-spirited or not is irrelevant. A joke’s a joke; you can either take it or you can’t,” Brian told TV.com.
“The timing doesn’t surprise me,” Brian added. “Dancing with the Stars has replaced Idol as the number one show for, what, the last two weeks?”
