Kelly Ripa Tells Ryan Seacrest He Has to Host 'Idol' Reboot

Now that the American Idol reboot is set to land at ABC, the chances of Ryan Seacrest returning as host seem even greater as he is already working for the network!

Ryan just started his gig as the co-host of Live! with Kelly and Ryan and Kelly Ripa is already campaigning for him to return to Idol.

“I think this has to happen,” Kelly said on Monday morning (May 8). “I went into seclusion when American Idol was canceled. Are you going to host it? Please tell me yes.”

“Whatever you want. You’re my work wife! I say yes and bow to you,” Ryan responded. “No, I don’t know about that part yet. We haven’t gotten that far. 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.”

“I have to tell you, typically I only save prayers for world peace or people who are very sick and stuff like that, but I am gonna start a prayer circle. I was, like, your original fan,” Kelly jokingly added. “I know that you’re busy in the mornings, I get it. I understand its hard doing double duty — you’ve got the radio show, you’ve got this. But your nights are free you don’t have that much to do. You can do this!” she exclaimed. “You can disconnect for that! On the days where it is the day after, I will totally …you won’t even have to think, I will do it all!”

Ryan Seacrest Is Officially Kelly Ripa's New 'Live' Co-Host!

Ryan Seacrest has officially been announced as the new co-host of the newly re-named Live! with Kelly and Ryan alongside longtime host Kelly Ripa!

The 42-year-old television personality made his first appearance as the permanent co-host on Monday morning (May 1).

“Today, the next story of the Live story is about to be written. Today is a very good day,” Kelly said. “I would like to thank all of the men and women who sat next to me co-hosting with me this past year. It’s not a big enough word, but they took time out of their busy schedules and took time away from their day jobs to hang out with me in the morning. Part of what makes this show so special is that through helping us out, we all became family. They are a part of the Live family forever.”

Kelly then thanked her audience, both in the studio and at home, for sticking with the show throughout the years.

Before making the big announcement, Kelly went to commercial break in the same way that Ryan often would on American Idol‘s results shows!

Who is Kelly Ripa's New 'Live' Co-Host? Sources Say...

Kelly Ripa is set to announce her new permanent Live! co-host on Monday morning’s show today (May 1) and sources say the person will be Ryan Seacrest.

The 46-year-old talk show host has been hosting the show with a rotating roster of guest co-hosts for nearly a year after Michael Strahan left the show on May 13, 2016.

Strahan joined the program permanently on September 4, 2012 and announced his departure on April 19, 2016 to join Good Morning America as a full-time anchor.

Ryan, who hosted American Idol for many years and was rumored to be in the running to host America’s Got Talent this summer, was one of the many guest co-hosts on the program throughout the past year. Multiple sources told CNN that he will be introduced as the new permanent co-host!

Kelly Ripa Will Announce Her New 'Live!' Co-Host on Monday

The search for Kelly Ripa‘s new co-host is finally over!

The 46-year-old host of Live! with Kelly teased on Twitter that she has finally found a new co-host and that they will be revealed on Monday morning (May 1).

“We’re going to need a bigger mug. #TuneInToLive #BigAnnouncement #LiveKellyCohost,” Kelly captioned the below video of herself sipping on a coffee mug that had a giant question mark on it.

Last year, Kelly‘s co-host Michael Strahan announced the shocking news that he would be leaving the show for Good Morning America.

After the news broke, Kelly took several days off from the show after reportedly being blindsided and embarrassed that she was not given a heads up.

Over the past year, Kelly has had tons of guest co-hosts from Anderson Cooper to Neil Patrick Harris and Jerry O’Connell.
