Seacrest gets Walk of Fame Star today.

Seacrest gets Walk of Fame Star today.
American Idol host Ryan Seacrest is being honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today–but not for his work on Idol. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s announcement notes:

“Since Seacrest’s debut, American Top 40 has more than doubled its listeners topping out at a record breaking 3.1 million listeners per show. … Seacrest also took over the most coveted radio position in Los Angeles on its Top 40 radio powerhouse 102.7 KIIS-FM morning show. Since the new Seacrest morning show, On Air with Ryan Seacrest premiered on February 26th, 2004 over 1 million people tune in each week to wake up with Seacrest and the show has become the #1 most listened to morning show in Los Angeles.”

There’s no mention of his television work, though, probably because getting a star requires “five years in the field of entertainment.” Ironically, the ceremony takes place this morning at 11:30 a.m. at Hollywood and Highland, right next the TV studios where he used to film his cancelled TV show. This all assumes Ryan’s still around, as Defamer is planning “to invent a time machine, travel back to the moment before Seacrest’s conception, and sterilize his father with a fireplace poker.”
+ also: Jason Sechrest talks about his American Idol porn parody role and Ryan Seacrest’s comments about it.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
