The question now?
When will Ryan Seacrest sign along the dotted line to return as host?
While Fox may have made a final play for the return of 'American Idol', ABC has finally secured the rights, and will broadcast the show in 2018, likely March.
The only questions that need answered now are whether or not Ryan Seacrest will return as host, and who will judge. Rumors are circulating that Idol queen Kelly Clarkson is wanted, and Ryan's return is said to be likely.
