Ryan Seacrest's Oscars Red Carpet Coverage Will Be Delayed Amid Allegations

Ryan Seacrest‘s coverage of the Oscars for E! News is set to be aired with a delay.

According to THR, the network wants to prevent the airing of any potential backlash against Ryan amid sexual misconduct claims.

The reported 30-second delay of the live broadcast would allow E! to filter any potential awkward moments.

Meanwhile, E! says things will be “business as usual” on the red carpet.

“As always, we tape multiple sources of content simultaneously to deliver the best possible show, and there are often brief delays between interviews,” an E! spokesperson told THR.

Earlier, #MeToo founder Tarana Burke spoke out about Ryan‘s appearance at the Oscars and didn’t agree with E!‘s choice.

    Wow, come on. Either Ryan is tough enough to do the red carpet, or not. Don’t baby him with a 30-second delay.

    they’re trying to cover their asses on either people refusing to stop and be interviewed by him (hence the comment on how there are ‘delays’) OR someone dragging him for being there(hence the delay). E! doesn’t give a crap about RS, they just want to ensure they’re covered.

    What a bunch of bullshit. I hope Ryan’s left standing there with his mic and no one stops to talk to him.

  • Reilly

    Anybody else in this situation would be taken off until things are sorted. The fact they are still using him speaks volumes.

  • Amber

    They should’ve let another correspondent handle the interviews. The network acts as if it can’t function without Ryan Seacrest. He’s not a compelling interviewer in the first place, and I do believe he’s guilty of sexual harassment. I’m glad I stopped watching E! years ago. After the Catt Sadler revelation, and now this fiasco, I am fully convinced that network is trash.
