Ryan Seacrest to Host ‘Million Second Quiz’ on NBC

Seacrest now hosts show on three nets.

Ryan Seacrest has officially signed on as the host and executive producer of NBC’s upcoming quiz show, “Million Second Quiz.”

Show is set to bow Sept. 9, running for 12 consecutive nights (taking one night off for football, as religion dictates).

Contestants participate in the show 24 hours a day during its run (roughly 11 days, 13 hours, 46 minutes and 40 seconds … or one million seconds), with the nightly show broadcast live from the hourglass-shaped structure in Manhattan, which doubles as living quarters for the contestants. Possible grand prize could go as high as $10 million.

The show is produced by All3 Media America, Studio Lambert and Universal Television. Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman, David A. Hurwitz and Seacrest serve as executive producers.

With the deal, Seacrest now fronts shows on NBC, ABC (“New Year’s Rockin’ Eve”), and Fox (“American Idol”), leaving only CBS as Seacrest’s unconquered net.
