There’s been speculation on whether or not the 11th season of “American Idol” would be host Ryan Seacrest’s last, but according to Fox and Seacrest himself, they hope it isn’t.

Fox Entertainment President said while the negotiations won’t be easy, the ultimate goal is to keep Seacrest on board.

“As we know it is a much harder job than meets the eye,” Reilly said. “I think everyone has come to realize the value of Ryan Seacrest. It’s very hard to imagine [American Idol] without Ryan. We certainly want to keep him.”

And it sounds like Seacrest himself isn’t ready to go anywhere.

“I love this television show… and I can’t imagine life without “American Idol,” he said.
