It’s happening guys. I told you Ryan Seacrest was hell-bent on world domination. I warned you, but you didn’t listen, and now it may be too late. Apparently, Seacrest is just mere steps from having his own channel. Who does he think he is, Oprah?
In all that downtime from hosting American Idol, E! News, and every E! award show broadcast, producing all that God-awful Kardashian programming and Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, and hosting his own radio show, Seacrest needs something else to occupy the time he should be using for, oh I don’t know, sleep? He’s reportedly in talks to create his own cable network of “music, pop culture, and lifestyle” shows. Um, so kind of like E! or MTV or VH1? Yeah, we definitely need a whole other channel devoted to Joan Rivers’ bitchy comments and semi-celebs’ latest wacky escapades.
So they’re talking about it, but there’s no guarantee, right? Well, apparently running an entire channel wouldn’t interfere with his work at E! (Okay, seriously. There’s no way one person has that much time.) And to add to that fire, Seacrest is buds with the Comcast big wig who stands to take on a bigger role when Comcast and NBC Universal merge. His plan is finally coming together, the companies are aligning, his alliances are serving him well and it looks like he may just get his own cable channel for real. Excellent. Now that he’s about to secure his limitless window to the world, he’s one step closer to that master plan of total domination.
Alright, alright. So he’s just an industrious guy. I’ll leave him alone. He doesn’t really want to take over the world. Besides he’s just about the most inoffensive person on television – if you don’t count his involvement in the creation of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Brody Jenner’s Bromance, and Denise Richards: It’s Complicated. Wait, he doesn’t really do any other kinds of TV. This new channel is going to be E! 2.0, isn’t it? Crap.
