    I think what killed his show was the time it was aired; most are at work or the kids are either still in school, just getting home or doing after school activities. I would have watched it if it was on at a more convenient time like after 6pm. I like Ryan, after all, we are both Georgians :)

    He was getting HUGE guests…it took TRL years to get the same guests it took Ryan a couple months to land. The kid does need a break, though. He’s EVERYWHERE!

    If it’s true it would have probably helped had they played it everywhere. Our cable company didn’t have it on it’s schedule so I’ve never been able to watch it.

    That is such a lie. Why would it be cancelled? I can’t remember the guests that were gonna be on the show this afternoon (the last time I visited the site) but that doesn’t mean his show is cancelled because IS gonna have a show!! And if he doesn’t have a show then he’s probably gonna be thinking of quit American Idol!! No!!! But I do have to admit that his signature is getting really lame. “Seacrest, OUT!” yeah whatever. lol

    Well back then when TRL first came out huge guests didn’t start pouring in because it was a new show that didn’t sky rocket yet, and Carson wasn’t a familiar face. Everybody that has seen American Idol knows who Ryan Seacrest is, and with the help of American Idol, his show got noticed and made him and his show popular.

    I have only seen a little of the show, and to me it seems to be just all about American Idol and some of the people that were on it. The show wouldn’t have been popular as it is now if Ryan Seacrest was just a fresh young face trying to make a hit talk show. It’s great that his show is doing well, I care less if it’s popular or not really. I think he’s cool.
