AMERICAN IDOL Top 2

Ryan Seacrest will be adding another hosting gig to his lengthy resume. It has been announced that Seacrest will headline NBC’s new competition show, The Million Second Quiz. Paul Telegdy, the president of NBC’s alternative and late night programming, broke the news.

“When people see Ryan Seacrest, whether at the Emmys, the Oscars or New Year’s Eve, he is at the epicenter of national events. He is a broadcaster, in all the traditional sense, but also in the most contemporary — he is an accomplished host of live TV and a master of social media and pop culture. This makes him perfect for ‘The Million Second Quiz’,” Telegdy said.

Seacrest was equally happy over signing on as the series’ host. “I’m so excited to be hosting this new live game show on NBC, as it’s really a fun and different format that I believe will generate lots of fans across different platforms. I’m looking forward to working with the other producers and everyone at NBC to make the show a success.”

‘The Million Second Quiz’ is scheduled to make its debut on Monday, September 9 in the 8pm timeslot. The show will continue to air each night until September 14. Following a two-night break, the Second Quiz will then resume on September 16 through September 19, when the finale airs.
