NBC in Talks to Revive 'American Idol'


Well that didn't last long.

"American Idol," the extremely popular and long-running singing competition show, had it's final season in 2016.  It was a huge success for FOX, and now NBC apparently wants in on the action.

NBC has been pitched a revival of the long-running singing competition and is now mulling options for how to integrate the show into its programming slate. One possibility being considered: cutting NBC’s existing singing competition “The Voice” from two cycles a year to one.

FremantleMedia, who produced "American Idol" for FOX have reportedly been shopping a revival of the hit show for weeks.

Neither side has commented, but stay tuned for more info.  Seacrest could be back on your television soon.
