Ryan Seacrest circles NBC's 'Million Second Quiz'
Comcast Golden Boy Ryan Seacrest may be staying in the family for his next gig, a possible hosting stint on NBC's "Million Second Quiz."
The 12-day endurance-and-trivia competition will premiere on NBC on September 9 and will offer the winner a possible top prize of $10 million. The show will be broadcast live in primetime, which should be no sweat for Seacrest after years of doing "Idol" (and New Year's Eve and E! News) live.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, negotiations have been somewhat complicated by Seacrest's busy schedule, which includes a daily radio show as well as all of his E! production duties, but the game show's condensed time table makes it a possibility.
