Kelly Ripa Tells Ryan Seacrest He Has to Host 'Idol' Reboot

With talk of an "American Idol" reboot getting more serious, Seacrest discussed the possibility of returning as host of the reality singing competition series with his "Live" co-host, Kelly Ripa during their show Monday.

Ripa responded by imploring him, "Yes you can!" and assuring him that she would lighten his "Live" prep responsibilities for episodes following "Idol" shoots.
