Ryan Seacrest on NBC’s Olympic Coverage: ‘You Can’t Please Everyone’

Ryan Seacrest, who has been in London this week for NBC’s Olympic programming, responds to the critics of the network’s coverage in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:

As I’ve learned from all my years in television, you can’t please everyone. I believe the huge ratings NBC has drawn for the Olympics speak for themselves. Obviously, the media landscape is shifting every day, and the network is doing its best to respond to the dynamic landscape.

Seacrest also shares his daily schedule:

We’re working with a number of NBC divisions here in London, and it’s really a collaborative effort on how we balance my time on the various programs I’m committed to. Today, we did the radio show, then the Today show, then taped E! News, and then we did a track for a primetime Michael Phelps update piece. Now we are taping a lead and tag for the piece for primetime, and then we’re going to stay and watch the Phelps race.
