Ryan Seacrest To Host Fox's 25th Anniversary Special
Foxís upcoming 25th Anniversary Special is shaping up to be a big affair, with various stars set to appear, including the casts of That 70ís Show and Married with Children, as well as In Living Colorís Keenen Ivory Wayans, Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans. Until now, the event was without an announced host, but Fox sent word along today that theyíve got someone on board, and heís certainly no stranger to hosting at the network.
For the last decade, Ryan Seacrest has remained one of the primary faces of Foxís successful singing competition American Idol. As host of the series, Seacrestís responsibilities have included introducing the contestants, bantering with the judges, being a shoulder to cry on for rejected auditioners, and being the one to reveal the results each week. Despite how he makes it look, I doubt itís an easy job, nor do I imagine itís without itís fair share of stress, given that the show airs live. But he does it well, so itís not surprising at all that Fox would look to Seacrest to take on the role of host for the 25th Anniversary Special.
Included in the announcements were additions to the star-studded line-up of talent set to appear on the special. Houseís Hugh Laurie will be there, as will The Simpsonsí Kelsey Grammer.
Foxís 25th Anniversary Special airs Sunday, April 22†(8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on Fox.
