Ryan Seacrest has just signed a new two year deal to contiune as host of American Idol.  The news comes as American Idol's ratings are

down more than 20 percent in total viewers compared with last year.  According to Seacrest "I'm excited for my journey on American Idol"  He also called it a dream job. At $15 mill a year I'd certainly have to agree with him.

I found myself spending less time with Idol this year especially on Wednesday nights when I tune out Idol and tune in Modern Family.

Are you still a fan of American Idol?
