It’s official: Ryan Seacrest has landed another TV hosting gig. The American Idol host has signed on to emcee NBC’s new game show Million Second Quiz, the network announced Monday. He’ll also act as executive producer.
“When people see Ryan Seacrest, whether at the Emmys, the Oscars or New Year’s Eve, he is at the epicenter of national events,” Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and late night programming, said in a statement. “He is a broadcaster, in all the traditional sense, but also in the most contemporary — he is an accomplished host of live TV and a master of social media and pop culture. This makes him perfect for The Million Second Quiz.”
