Ryan has extended his relationship with NBC to include doing some correspondent work for the TODAY show. They also listed ALL the other stuff he is doing so with the time difference between NYC and LA, he will have to get up about 3 am to squeeze this job in.
He has taken a lot of flack in the press and amongst the viewers but I think he's one of the best hosts on television right now. He very rarely flubs his lines, he's quick on his feet and he exudes the proper emotion for the situation (jokes, sympathy, etc).
Don't forget Cat Deely. IMO, she's the best kept secret, since SYTYCD doesn't have as big of a following.
I'd read that when Ryan was sick earlier last week and questionable as to whether he'd be able to host, Cat was asked to stand in if necessary. I didn't find any confirmation about whether she was able to.
In a case of having just way to damn much money, Ryan has just purchased the estate of Ellen Degeneres for a cool $49 million. See photos here:
