Ryan Seacrest loves “American Idol” — he makes that perfectly clear — and he doesn’t seem to be sweating the prospect of the show not returning next season … ratings be damned.
We got the ‘Idol’ host leaving E Baldi restaurant in Beverly Hills Friday evening and asked if he’s concerned at all about the revived singing competition struggling to attract viewers. Doesn’t seem like it … because he knows it’s a great show.
Ryan says he hopes ‘AI’ returns for another season, and it should be noted — it’s still performing well for ABC compared to the same time slot in recent years.
So Seacrest is right to stay positive about things … especially when gets to snap a pic with a “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” star, too.
