Ryan was this year profiled by The Hollywood Reporter, with the feature big-time showing just how crazy his schedule becomes, once his five-day-a-week appearances alongside talk show queen Kelly Ripa factor in.
"I am traveling — I’ll travel [Wednesday] afternoon after we finish two shows here in New York. Auditions will start in the afternoon in San Diego and I’ll go right into taping through Saturday, then return to New York on Sunday for Live. It’s a truncated audition city schedule this season," he said. More photos below.
Pandemic, But Make It 'Idol'
Ryan, filmed alongside judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie, was quick to refer to adjustments that have been made on account of the global pandemic, reassuring fans that measures to keep everyone safe are in place.
"The production again is going through [testing and safety] protocols, but it looks a lot more normal. The judges are spread apart, the contestants are spread apart, and I talk to them outside the door. But it looks like American Idol," he added.
