The Hollywood Reporter has released their Reality TV Power List for 2011…and guess who’s on top? Ryan Seacrest. Which means Simon Cowell got dethroned! This news is not shocking to me at all…Ryan Seacrest runs reality TV these days. He has a million reality shows, he hosts Idol (among many other things), and has literally taken over.
Here’s part of the list:
1. Ryan Seacrest – Producer, founder of Ryan Seacrest Productions
2. Mike Darnell – President of alternative entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Co.
3. Jennifer Bresnan – Executive vp, alternative programming at CBS
4. John Saade & Vicki Dummer – Senior vps alternative series, specials and late-night, ABC Entertainment
5. Nancy Dubuc – President and GM at Lifetime and History
6. Simon Cowell – Founder and owner of Syco, executive producer of “America’s Got Talent”
7. Cecile Frot-Coutaz – CEO of FremantleMedia North America
8. David Goldberg – Chairman of Endemol North America
9. Paul Telegdy -Executive vp, alternative programming at NBC and Universal Media Studios
