According to the Hollywood Reporter, Seacrest will work solely for CKX which is the parent company of American Idol producer 19 Entertainment. This won't be too stressful for the host because he will only handle broadcast-network jobs and nothing more.

Simon Cowell, however, who dished his plans of leaving American Idol then, was also offered $100 million per season. Now, it's time for the producers to set the record straight if judges Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, and newlywed Kara DioGuardi are coming back for the next season of the highly anticipated reality show.
