Is it rude to say I don't know what the big deal is about Ryan Seacrest? He's reasonably attractive, seems to want to be very busy (See American Idol, New Years' Rockin' Eve, E! News, a very popular morning radio show in LA, and who knows what else?], but has always seemed a little too polished for my taste.

Anyway, Mr. Seacrest may be adding another job to his very-full resume; The Wall Street Journal is reporting that NBC-TV wants him to replace Matt Lauer on the Today show, should Lauer be serious about his rumored desire to give up the job.He's been getting up early since 1997.

NBC and Seacrest reportedly met Tuesday evening, No word on what, if anything was settled.
