Diane Keaton took to The Today Show this morning where Matt Lauer asked her about her new movie and why she believes people like her so much.

Ryan Seacrest was on The Today Show this morning where he sat down with Matt Lauer. In the interview, he was asked about the rumors circulating that Seacrest wants to follow Lauer as Today’s lead anchor, and he also shared with us that he is very close to a contract extension to continue hosting American Idol.

The American Idol host elaborated on what this new deal with the network means. It is essentially an extension with NBCUniversal that will extend his presence in the role of special correspondent for the broadcaster aside from his duties at E!

Perhaps The X Factor’s troubles with finding a working host is giving Fox the sense that he really is not as replaceable as previously speculated.
