After the sudden death of television legend Dick Clark earlier this week, talk has begun of a new reign over "New Year's Rockin' Eve", to be helmed by American Idol host and radio personality Ryan Seacrest.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that Seacrest will be taking over, since he's co-hosted the live event since 2005 after Clark's stroke left him unable to perform the duties alone. The two share quite a few similarities, both having worked in radio and hosting hugely successful television shows; they also share a seemingly tireless work ethic, multi-tasking several projects and jobs at once.
But not everyone is a fan, and the idea of anyone replacing such a household name is throwing some people off.
Let's put things in perspective. Dick Clark helped create what was once the music business. Ryan Seacrest interviews Kardashians.
R.I.P. Dick Clark. You were cooler than Ryan Seacrest.
Dick Clark has passed. And another piece in Ryan Seacrest's sinister plot falls into place.
Now that Dick Clark has died we have to watch Ryan Seacrest for the next 50 years.
