American Idol Won’t Lose Ryan Seacrest

Seacrest lovers, American Idol lovers (do you distinguish yourselves separately?), rejoice. The Crest has re-upped with Idol for two more years, Fox confirms to Vulture. More juicily, The Hollywood Reporter tells us Seacrest will earn $15 million per year to stay onboard. The lucrative deal with Fox won't preclude Seacrest from expanding the Seacrest empire, either; he's still covering this summer's Olympics for NBC and will likely keep popping up on the Today show, where he will have so much inside info about a certain televised singing competition.
