Ryan Seacrest came 'close' to proposing


After nearly one year of flying solo, Kelly Ripa has finally found a permanent co-host for her daytime talk show on ABC: Ryan Seacrest. She started things off by asking, "So, let me ask you a question".

There's also a logical issue for Seacrest: Live With Kelly is a New York-based show, while American Idol was traditionally filmed in Los Angeles when it wasn't going across the country in the early auditions.
