Andy Cohen's warning for Ryan Seacrest: Don't underestimate Kelly Ripa

With an American Idol reboot on the rise at ABC, just as his new tenure as Kelly Ripa's Live co-host has officially begun, Seacrest has revealed that he's not so sure he'll be able to resume his post as host of the reality competition show. He shared that he called ABC after hearing the reports.

But Kelly, 46, wasn't prepared to give up without a fight and vowed to do whatever she could to make it possible for her co-host to work on both their show and the talent contest. The Alphabet is eyeing a March premiere for the revived show, and would potentially air it on Sunday nights.

Andy Cohen offered a word of advice to Ryan Seacrest.

Ryan admitted though he doesn't know if he can host it based on all the preparation he has to do for Live. "I said, 'Well, that's kind of good to know, I work here!'" News alum said. "We haven't gotten that far". No, I don't know about that part yet. "So this was news to me, actually, last week".

Still, Ripa, a huge Idol fan, insisted he reclaim his hosting duties if and when the show gets a second life. Idol signed off with shrinking ratings, yet even those numbers would handily beat most of what's on television these days.

"I think this has to happen", Kelly said on Monday morning (May 8).

American Idol first launched on FOX back in 2002 and ran for 15 seasons when it said "so long for now" with its series finale in 2016. He is moving to NY for the new role, while Idol has always been shot in Los Angeles. This makes Seacrest's involvement quite hard because "Live" is shot in NY. "I don't know if I can host [American Idol]", he says.

Seacrest and his girlfriend was spotted by TMZ in NY on Sunday, and he was asked about a possible "American Idol" return.
