All in one week for Ryan Seacrest: a $30-million contract to remain as host of Fox’s American Idol for the next two years; a nearly debilitating case of the flu (or some other ailment that nearly knocked him off Idol for the first time); and now a multifaceted contract with Comcast and NBC that will see him turning up as a special correspondent on the Today show, primetime news programs, and on NBC’s coverage of the London Olympics — as well as continuing his current role on E! Entertainment Channel.In a statement, NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke said, “This is a great example of how NBCUniversal is able to provide the perfect home for some of the best people in the business.”
