FishbowlLA today quells some of those Ryan Seacrest-to-CNN rumors.

Mayrav Saar reports that sources close to Seacrest confirmed the American Idol host is in talks with CNN to take over for Larry King at 9pmET, but the source also says, “I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

King just signed a new deal that will keep him with CNN into 2011. The deal, however, does not guarantee King will stay as 9pmET host of Larry King Live.
